Very good for food and service

There is not a lot more you can say than the food is good and the service pleasant. I would recommend this to anyone as a lovely place to take family or enjoy a meal with friends. I have been here on a number of occasions and have never regretted the decision. It's good enough for royalty... and... read more

A quaint, slightly old-fashioned feel to the bar and restaurant adds to the atmosphere. Everything spotlessly clean and you can opt for bar or restaurant food. We wanted a a light lunch in the bar but it was full so we - along with a few other parties - were seated in the dining room. The homemade soup (2 choices)... More

Aside from "running out" of the two "specials" I originally ordered, the food was tasty and the service very pleasant - at least as far as the helper's went. The main director (not sure if she was an owner or not) seemed very overbearing and defensive about the meal and service - and there wasn't anything to complain about except... More

We have frequented Strathmore Arms on a number of occasions & we've been there twice in the last fortnight. I have to say we have never been disappointed. Which ever food we have chosen from the extensive menu has always been plentiful & cooked to perfection. Previous reviews have mentioned the decor being a bit dated, but I would say... More

Every Boxing Day we go here for a meal. Massive portions and very tasty. The staff are friendly and always remember us. The food is served at a good pace and is piping hot. Good quality home cooking. Well recommended, also loved the roaring fire for cold winters nights.

The Strathmore Arms is always a go to restaurant for me. It never let's me down food or service wise, and I feel it is good value for money. The decor is old fashioned which I love, it gives a warm welcoming atmosphere to eat and socialise in. I would definitely recommend the Strathmore Arms.

I've given this restaurant a 'very good' because it was for my dad's birthday tea and his steak was cooked to perfection and he loved it. It came on a sizzling platter with huge onion rings, mushrooms and tomato, with a side dish of salad and chips. We were taken to a room which had about half a dozen tables... More

Ate a meal in the bar-good atmosphere even on a wintry midweek evening. Staff could not have been more helpful. Food is unpretentious, well cooked and served in generous amounts. The venison stew was excellent. Straightforward, good value places like this can be surprisingly hard to find in these parts. I have eaten here several times over the past few... More
