A traditional pub and restaurant in the beautiful, historic spa town of Bridge of Allan. Established in 1842, the Westerton Arms has been, and still is an integral part of the Bridge of Allan community.

Open daily from 9am until 10pm, we serve exceptional quality, locally sourced food.

In our bar we have a wide range of spirits, malt whisky and an extensive range of gins. We also serve a range of locally brewed beers and ales, as well as mainstream brands, namely, Guinness, Belhaven Best and Birra Moretti
to name but a few.

We have wood burning stoves for chilly days and beer gardens front and rear of the building for those sunny days. There is also customer car parking to the rear.

Four legged friends are welcome in the bar area

    Overall it was good apart from (1) the waitress took the order down wrong which meant we all ate separately from our friend who had to wait on the correct order being cooked, (2) the fruit crumble was runny/watery and (3) it was difficult to talk sometimes as there was a child crying loudly.

    Very disappointed with our visit on Sunday. The service was very slow although the restaurant wasn’t busy! We had to ask for the children’s menu when it was clear there was 2 toddlers at the table. The wait for our drinks was lengthy and we eventually had to ask where they’d gone. One of the mains was the chicken kebab, upon putting this down on the table I wondered where the other half of the meal was, for £17.95 there was a small sized wrap with 3/4 pieces of chicken. This meal was not worth the cost and also did not come with a side!! You would get a better chicken kebab from a takeaway that would cost half the price and taste better ( I would highly not recommend) The chicken burger was greasy, I left half of it as the taste of grease was overpowering! I order the fish tacos for my son, and a plate of fish and chips was brought out with excessive amounts of salt on the chips (nothing about the plate was fish tacos and missed the dips stated on the menu) Another member of the party was disappointed as the steak pie arrived with skinny fries not chunky chips, you would expect a classic dinner to arrive with Chunky chips or I feel you should be made aware when ordering and given the choice. The bill came to £113 and it was certainly not worth this, the server did take some money off the bill but even at that it was not worth what I paid! We will not be back and would not recommend to family and friends such a shame as a nice setting!

    A great location in the centre of Bridge of Allan. The restaurant is nicely laid out with plenty of space between tables and you are served by excellent, attentive and friendly staff. The menu is extensive and the food is delicious. A good wine list and an excellent range of beers.

    First time there and menu looked good. Service was prompt and friendly but when we asked for the heating to be increased (it was so cold my wife had her cost over her knees and mine around her shoulders) we were told they’d need to check with the manager. I’m not sure if it was put on but nobody came back to let us know either way. Food was really nice and portion size was large. Lovely seasonal veg. The temperature was the only issue.

    Lovely food, serving of food needs more coordination, both starters and mains one of our party had to wait for around 5 mins after the other was served. Hold the good till everyone’s is ready! Also, 2 different waiters trying to give us different wineglasses. Needs better communication. However, a pleasant night out, thanks

    The Westie as we like to call it is a superb Bridge of Allan Pub. They always show the big sporting ocassions on multiple screens. The bar is incredibly well stocked and while the food is expensive, it is usually delicious, and there is a great diverse selection of interesting meals to choose from.

    On arrival we were greeted warmly but told that there would be a delay with food as they only had one chef on, and bit short staffed, as we were in no hurry it was not a problem, drinks were soon served, and the meal on arrival was very good and piping hot. It was our first time here visiting a friend, and look forward to eating here again very nice warm atmosphere

    Lovely environment and really tasty roast dinner, only criticism is the roast potatoes were a bit hard like they'd been sitting a bit, but the rest was absolutely lovely. Really friendly and attentive service as well, will be sure to be back!

    It was a good experience but the staff were super attentive at the start- came over several times to ask if we were ready when we hadn’t even opened up the menus! After we had finished though they were very slow and we had to call someone over. Food was reasonable but not very inventive. A bit boring I suppose. Ok for pub grub.
