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!

Couldn't get in anywhere for a Saturday night dinner so decided to go here, will definitely be going back. Excellent food and service. The menu is quite simple but there were 3-4 specials on the board too.

We have visited this restaurant several times as a couple and special occasions and have never been disappointed. The standard of service and the food is definitely to fine dining standard. The owners and staff make sure that everyone has a top quality and pleasant experience. The fish and chips are amazing and the Irish coffees aren't bad either.

Staff really welcoming and friendly. Good menu cooked to your liking. Sensible portion size and average prices - what more could anyone want? Do try it but probably better to book though not usually full midweek.
