“Great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

My sister and I were taking our parents out for an afternoon drive and a spot of lunch, and we had not made a reservation and we were not anticipating any problems in finding somewhere to eat, but time was getting on and the places we tried stopped serving at 2pm.

We were on our way home and thought we would try The Goytre Arms as we were passing, my sister and I went in to explain our predicament and that our parents were really looking forward to giving us a treat, and he had a word with the chef and reopened the kitchen. We had a wonderful meal, deserts were spectacular and they thoroughly made our day.

Would definitely recommend.

We had an evening meal here and were delighted with the Goytre Arms new look both inside and out especially the chickens in the garden.
Fantastic to see some personality behind the bar.
All the very best to Richard and his family.

“Another excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Went today to treat my Uncle to a birthday lunch. Aberdeen angus burger was cooked to perfection. Superb home-made chips and stunning pancakes to finish. Then spent a couple of hours relaxing in the lounge with a friendly, warm and homely atmosphere.

That is why I choose the Goytre Arms everytime.
