We've had a meal and a drink in this pub and it was good and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We therefore thought we would give the carry out fish and chips a try. Big mistake. We ordered fish and sausage suppers over the phone. To collect them you are directed round the back. We were greeted with... More

As is usual with Scottish Pubs in a rural location they are less interested in hospitality and more in making a living - so this place is expensive and not overly hospitable or friendly. The food and drink is expensive - they pride themselves on the restaurant but its marginal to say the least. Drink is limited in scope and... More

After attending a funeral tea our family was left very disappointed with the service and quality of the food. The rolls were very dry and stale. The tea and coffee (one small pot of each) were left on a table with the milk and sugar and we had to serve ourselves and continually had to ask for more which seemed... More

Had gone for a drive as it was, for once, sunny & warm! Up here, that's a plus! Had been before & decided to stop off at The King's Arms in Fenwick & were very pleasantly surprised. The bar area was crowded & there was a vibrant buzz which was welcoming. The interior had been given an attractive makeover while... More
