Visited The Inn again last night with friends for dinner. The restaurant is an extension of the old pub and the decoration is lovely. It is tasteful and there is a nice atmosphere. Whether you are seeking a bar lunch or evening meal The Drovers is a good option because the staff are very welcoming and they provide a good... More

Visited last night with my partner for Valentines Day. We ordered from the 3 course Valentines set menu which included 2 complimentary glasses of prosecco. We live quite locally and eat here often as the food and service is usually excellent. However, last night was a real disappointment. The food as ever was top notch, no complaints. However, the service... More

Arrived at the drivers late last week for a meal and was not disappointed. We ordered and ate at the bar and although it was late when we arrived the food was delicious and served at quickly.

Went to the Drovers for a change. A glass of mediocre red wine was £6.55, and water was £3.90. The starters were good, Haggis fritters and squid (not together). We chose the special which was Rump of lamb, a very small portion for £15.50, crushed potatoes were lukewarm and there were some vegetables. It was all very edible, but there... More

Beautiful run through unspoilt countryside led us to the immaculate Drovers Inn. We have had lunch here many times and have never been disappointed. Today two fires were alight and we enjoyed our very reasonably priced lunch in the cosy bar. Food was presented well and was tasty. Staff attentive and we will be back soon.
