“Awful service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Stopped here on way back from coach trip, very disappointed at the attitude of staff who appeared to resent having to work on a Saturday evening. Very poor show and not to be recommended.

“Interesting...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

W were told to avoid the Huntly hotel and choose this for dinner instead. A pretty small, humble place, but decent food. Lots of traditional pub fare. Relatively laid back service, average prices.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We have been before and the food was as good as the first time. I had the chicken fillets and they were huge. My plate was overflowing. I would highly recommend a visit. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was very comfortable.

“Fantastic and Reasonably Priced Food in Huntly!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had dinner hear two nights in a row. Night 1 - steak pie and chicken with bearnaise sauce. Both dishes were excellent with nice portions and fresh sides of baby potatoes, peas, and carrots. Night 2- beef bourguignon special and salmon. Gordan Arms mastered the beef bourguignon- best I've ever had. Salmon was fresh and wonderful. Good staff and service.

“The Gordon Arms”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

The pub itself is tired...in desperate need of updating!

Food was disappointing!! I have been several time just because there isn't much choice in Huntly but now I avoid the place!
I had a toasty for lunch and it was burnt, the crisps on the side were stale!! How hard is it to not burn toast?!
I had a curry for tea another time and it tasted like a micro meal :(

The service how ever was good, friendly ect nothing special though.
