This is such an excellent pub in the village of Tarves. Awesome food, genuine customer service and such a great place to visit for a few hours. We have been lucky enough to have breakfast, lunch and dinner here and they have all been excellent. Well worth a visit!

This is a traditional village square pub in a bonny village. It does good food in generous helpings eschewing the fickle and fashionable in place of the well prepared and traditional fare associated with the area it serves. Quality is high and value for money is genuinely there, . The place is clean as a whistle throughout and staff are...

Thank you so much for your comprehensive review which highlights our attempts at making people feel welcome in the Aberdeen Arms and our staff do us proud. We do try to offer more traditional dishes because they prove popular, although our specials board lists slightly different fare. We've just been decorating recently - but the list is endless! However, your...

A good village pub isnt necessarily 'special', but it has to give its customers what they hope for, reliably. And the Aberdeen Arms does. Warm friendly pub, good beer including at least one guest ale, excellent value food menu with portions that wont leave you wanting.

We love visiting the Aberdeen Arms for family lunches and suppers. The meals are scrumptious and great value for money. The staff are always attentive and make you feel very welcome. Such a lovely community spirit. Thank you.

Went to the restaurant for a Sunday lunch, arrived late due to road closure but made welcome and the service was good, well worth a visit if out for a run in the country or staying around the area, well worth a visit and will be back again for a meal.

Good lunch, friendly service, food well cooked and good portion size. Just wish they did lighter options at lunch such as toasties/sandwiches etc. sometimes you don't want a full meal. Good value and good food though.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. I'm glad you enjoyed lunch. We have tried a more snack based menu but decided that by offering the full menu, our customers have a wider choice and in some cases we can do half portions. Another option is maybe have a starter followed by a pudding. Hopefully you will return...

Had a lovely meal here with my wife and my sister and brother in law who were over from Vancouver. It was a last minute decision to go there as our original choice of restaurant was closed. Glad we opted for the Aberdeen Arms hotel as the food was great and the service terrific. We will certainly be back.

Stayed one night for a wedding recently. Really nice place with very helpful friendly owner and staff. Breakfast was very good and had pre ordered from a list. Rooms are small but immaculate and shower room clean and modern. Would highly recommend and would stay again.
