No official word yet available but it appears that the Burnett Arms is now closed. This week (commencing 12th October), it has remained closed to customers, with the window blinds drawn down.

The tenants, who leased the hotel from the Melvin family (who remain owners of the land and buildings) have apparently given up. Further updates will be posted when more news becomes available.

About the Pub

Centrally located whitewashed hotel. New operators took on lease late in 2016 and the main lounges and restaurant were completely refurbished then. The lounge now operates under the name "Pepper & Fogg's".

Large function room to rear has its own bar and is well used at weekends. Local Rotary and Round Table clubs use one of the separate meeting rooms regularly.

Lounge popular for bar suppers.

Two handpumps but often only one available and, like other Deeside pubs winter months present a challenge, particularly with the apparent increasing popularity of the Dry January campaign

The former public bar to the east of the building, which was transformed in to a separate American diner by the previous owner operators, remains closed.
