    Lovely restaurant… love the chef and his partner … just very disappointed that the macaroni cheese was so stodgy… it was just macaroni with grated and grilled cheese on top. It needed a cheese sauce so that the macaroni didn’t stick together. That’s all. I’ve had really wonderful meals there and it hasn’t put me off going there again. It was just a one off, I guess.

    The Monkland ArmsResponded on 20 July 2021Thank you for your honest review, we're sorry your meal wasn't as you expected; I would like to add that we did offer to prepare an alternative meal which you declined and also provided complimentary puddings, I believe this offers a more rounded review, that whilst we might not always get it right we do try to resolve any issues and you rightly brought the matter to our attention at the time. We look forward to welcoming you all in the future, best regards, Jed.

    I took friends for a meal to the Monkland Arms as the county moved from tier 2 to tier 1. The owners have operated a safe location with simple 1 way system, hand sanitiser and spacing, this is now seamless and the table service is excellent. The real news story here is the food. The curry is excellent and served in a slate with ample rice and breads. Couldn’t fault it - my friends also commented on the service and quality of food.

    The chef is an excellent maker of curry. His passion is obvious when he explains the curry’s available. Serving size was really good too at this price point. Would highly recommend.

    We went for my Birthday whilst on holiday in the area and was made most welcome by the host's and nothing was to much trouble, the food was good and reasonably priced there was a good selection of draft beer and cider, so all in all a very pleasant evening. Many thanks and we will call in again when we are in the area again. Martin and Sue

    The team at this venue have worked hard to offer a really nice pub dining experience at good value prices. All local produce and very well kept beers. Will dine and drink again and would recommend. The new addition of pies and pasty’s from a local farm shop is excellent for a casual snack.

    Good Sunday lunch if you like solid simple pub grub. Beef apparently overdone but enjoyable. My halloumi chips were good but bruschetta disappointing. Beers good but wine selection very limited- white Riocha pleasant enough

    We, enjoyed our meal at The Monkland Arms very much this weekend. We got a friendly welcome and all the staff looked after us well. The food was excellent, prepared fresh and the menu is extensive enough to please a wide range of tastes. We enjoyed some local cider too. As a bonus there was a decent folk band on (The Stoned Cherries) so all in all a great evening thankyou.

    I am ashamed to state that after 12 years passing by , as I noticed this pub had changed hands many times , I booked a meal for two last Saturday evening and I was so happily surprised! The pub is so cosy in half light and just such a kind and warming place. The staff are fantastic and the food equally fantastic. I had thought , ok, pub food but it was all natural and home cooked. You can take your dog too! There was a man singing which added to the ambience. What a great place and that will teach me for not stopping by before ! Don’t judge a book by its cover! The Monkland Arms is a fantastic place to eat and to chill with friends! Well done to you !

    After a hiccup with the pub not receiving our booking through opentable - mast glitch we think. We were greeted very pleasantly and the licensee and staff were welcoming and apologetic. The ambience was cosy and homely with a good choice of background music which was played at a level which was not intrusive. There was a good and varied menu and our choices were promptly and were extremely tasty. We had a lovely evening and as a group we can recommend the creamy mushrooms, whitebait and sausage with mustard mash.
