Fine dining in the middle of nowhere,this is a real treat in the heart of the Angus countryside.The food and wine are excellent as was the service .Definately worth the extra bit of time and effort it takes to get to it.

Popped in here after a nice walk up carrot hill. Sat in the bar area with the dogs. Food was great as was the service. Loved the big highland cow style horns in the dining room!

Is the bar menu also available in the restaurant conservatory area or do you have to choose from the a la carte?

Only a guess, but most restaurants would let you choose what you like from any menu in the bar, but in the restaurant, it's likely only to be the a la carte menu available, given the much more luxurious surroundings.

Description
The Drovers Inn is an intriguing pub and restaurant offering both a traditional Scottish inn atmosphere and contemporary fine dining. Situated midway between Forfar and Kirriemuir,in the little village of Memus.Enjoy a hearty meal and a well earned ale by the fire in our traditional Scottish pub after a days walking in the Angus Glens or savour a superb meal in our elegant, stylish sixty seat restaurant. In summer our guests also enjoy the outdoor dining area under the trees while their children romp in the large open air play area.Our menu features modern Scottish cuisine at its very best, using herbs from our own garden and quality, locally sourced seasonal produce. The exceptional food is complemented by an extensive wine list and large selection of whiskies and cognacs to complete the experience.
