We went here for a family meal between Christmas and New Year. New management have recently taken over and word has been that vast improvements had already been seen, so thought we’d give it a go having always previously avoided the place. The food was...More

Popped in past so see if we could get a table, so glad we did. The GA seems to have cheered up! We all had the turkey it was lovely and plentiful! This is just what Huntly needs.

Went to Gordon Arms for after work drinks with colleagues. Staff really friendly and speedy service. Highly recommend the cheeseburger and chips at just under £5. Felt macaroni was a bit overpriced at £9.25. Would definitely go there again.

After visiting " The Bank" on Friday, we had an enjoyable meal here on the Saturday which was very well cooked, pleasant service, and considerably cheaper than most restaurants. A good range on the menu Iain a very nice atmosphere.

Visited for a family meal. The whole experience was a bit retro, not a deliberate vibe, just the decor and fittings haven't been changed since 1970. However on the positive side all the food served was excellent, home cooked pub grub favourites. The fish and...More

Thank you for the comments. We are somewhat restricted in space and style in the bar but like to think we are clean and tidy if not trendy. Filter coffee is served but as stated in the menu but we do offer a full coffee...More

Pretty average pub dining room with friendly staff and average food if you like chips with everything. Why can't pubs offer fresh green vegetables?!

Thanks for your comments. We do have daily deliveries of veg and most dishes give a choice of veg or salad. Chips are standard but we also offer boiled and mashed potatoes.
