Meldrum Arms Hotel Oldmeldrum
Visitors to the picturesque village of Oldmeldrum will find a friendly welcome awaits them at the Meldrum Arms Hotel where they have mastered the balance of combining modern cuisine with traditional Scottish cooking.
There is a free car parking next to the Hotel and several free car parks in the village. Strolling through the village brings you to some quaint shops including an olde sweet shop and a family butcher.
The Meldrum Arms Hotel is a listed building which adds to the charm of eating here. At the entrance is a statue of an old fashioned sailor with smoking pipe and beard. This was brought back from France Centuries ago by a former owner of the Hotel and is now a listed monument. You can read more about it and see a close up picture here

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

The bar is fully licensed and sells a wide range of alcohol and non alcoholic drinks as well as teas, coffees and a rather creamy delicious hot chocolate.
The waitresses are cheerful and efficient and the chef knows her way round the food and meals are soon cooked using fresh ingredients.
Children are welcomed and have their own menu and get a free activity sheet to keep them busy.
Menu Of Meldrum Arms Hotel
The starter menu has around 7 dishes including the soup of the day served with a hot roll or breaded mushrooms in a range of dips.
Main meals include sausages in onion gravy, steaks, lasagne, salads, filled rolls, baguettes or sandwiches, baked potatoes, mixed grill, curry's and pasta dishes. Dishes from Scotland include mince and tatties just like Oor Wullie's mum makes! All hot meals are served with a choice of potatoes or chips and fresh vegetables. There is also a special of the day such as roast lamb.
A visit to the restaurant on a Sunday brings the experience of having a roast dinner laid on a platter for the family to carve and serve. A great idea for everyone to get just what they like and giving the impression of being at home without the chore of cooking or the dishes!
Puddings and Sweets from the menus include traditional puddings such as upside down pear pudding with custard, apple pie with cream and a range of ice creams, cakes and tarts.
Portions are large and the waitresses bring a range of sauces to accompany each meal. The tables have proper linen table clothes and the interior is tastefully decorated and forms a relaxing setting. There are a few steps to negotiate inside the Hotel and we did not see any disabled access.

More Aberdeenshire restaurant and Hotel reviews
Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
