Trying to find a traditional country pub in one of the most picturesque parts of Courier Country? Look no further than the Drovers Inn.
Situated midway between Forfar and Kirriemuir in the small village of Memus, the Drovers Inn is a treat on the banks of the White Burn. Offering high quality seasonal and local produce, as well as a variety of drinks to enjoy, the pub is a welcome break for walkers in the area.
The menu at Drovers mixes homemade traditional pub favourites such as burgers and pies with more modern fine dining – including game from the estate the pub is located on.
The team of chefs create everything in the kitchen, including their homemade ice-creams, sorbets and bread. And there’s always specials on for those looking to try something a bit different.
One of the popular events on the Drovers calendar is Steak Night Wednesday. For just £12.50 you get a local Glenogil sirloin with onion rings, mushrooms, tomato and chips – a feast fit for a king! Because of its popularity, it’s recommended that people phone and book to avoid disappointment.
Every Sunday, there’s a different roast available with all the trimmings.
Diners can enjoy both the a la carte and bar menus in the cosy bar – complete with toasty open fire and wood-burning stove – or the restaurant for a more special occasion.
Or if you’re not in the mood for a meal, why not enjoy one of the two real ales (which change regularly) or a malt from the wide selection?
There is also a nice wine list, chosen to perfectly complement the Drovers menus, and a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, which can be taken out into the garden on a nice afternoon to enjoy in the sun.
And the Drovers Inn even offers a resting place for dogs in their bar, where they get the star treatment from the staff as well as other customers!
The Drovers Inn is open seven days a week, with food served between noon and 2.30pm and 5.30pm to 9pm Monday to Saturday and 12.30pm to 4pm on Sundays.
