Lunch at The Drovers Inn, Scotland – no cheese and onion toasties

By on July 27, 2006 in Scotland

Well, that was a shock.  The Drovers Inn, a classic highland pub, has undergone a bit of a make over.

The first thing I noticed was a reception in the hallway.  Apparently, it has been there for 18 months.

The second thing I noticed was the staff now appear to be wearing some sort of uniform which consisted of a black T-shirt, which advertises the pub, and a neat/tidy/unpatched kilt.  In the past, it seemed to be a free-for-all on style, and the kilts had definitely seen better days.

Finally, and the biggest shock of all, NO CHEESE AND ONION TOASTIES on the menu.  I have been eating cheese and onion toasties at The Drovers Inn for over 15 years.  I was shocked…..  The new menu was full of paninis and baguettes.  A barmaid persuaded me to try a panini haggis melt, which was surprisingly good, but nowhere near as good as a cheese and onion toastie.

On the plus side, the pub is still dark, stained with the smoke from the peat fires and the main hallway is still full of stuffed animals.
