Gastronomic Delights and a Friendly Welcome

Visited here on 14th June for Sunday lunch. Not our first visit and definitely not our last! The food, as experienced before was above standard, well presented and full of flavour.

Lunchtime menu is good value, but the food isn't anything spectacular, drinks well priced but wouldn't rush back to eat again

Haven't been here before but will definitely be back soon. We were looking for somewhere different for an early evening dinner and this was perfect! Inside is beautifully set up, a real country pub/ restaurant with quirky touches ( loved the flowers in the wellies)! The staff were really friendly and helpful and there was a real team spirit.

Went to the Vane Arms for Sunday lunch with my family. A bit pricey when you first see the menu but actually great value for the quality of the food. All of our starters were delicious (my chicken livers were mousse like in their consistency and divine). Beef was rare and pink and very tender. The only area for possible... More

We ended up here by chance and what a little gem of a place. We had lunch one steak sandwich and I had the good to be British platter . I loved the feel. The waitress was friendly and nothing was a problem. We will be returning

Warm welcome from courteous friendly staff. All of our party enjoyed their meals. I opted for haggis scotch egg which was fabulous, followed by lamb rump and potato gratin with vegetables.....delicious. Chocolate mousse cake and an Irish coffee to round off. We'll be back.

Just enjoyed a lovely dinner at The Vane Arms. Excellent quality food - all prepared fresh. Great value for money with excellent service. Lovely cosy atmosphere with open fires and a country pub feel. Booking advisable. Highly recommended.

Visited for a family birthday . We're given some home made bread which was very burnt. Starters ok good portions. One of the mains a steak ordered medium came well done. No taste and very dry. Vegetables under cooked and badly prepared. Steak was very poor value for money at £21.50. Drinks over priced at £3.80 for a pint of... More

Me and my husband have visited The Vane arms on quite a few occasions and when we received an email from the owner Tom, saying that they were going to start serving brunch (starting today), I emailed him back to ask if we should book a table or just turn up - we booked and I'm glad we did!
