Located in the heart of Fergus, the inn’s main house is an excellent example of 1860s architecture. The stone imported from Scotland is complemented by intricate ironwork, walnut banisters, and newel posts. It was built by the Honorable Admiral Ferguson as a residence, but also served as a nursing home and rooming house before it was converted into a charming country hotel, which houses two restaurants; the better of the two is the Fergusson Room, which serves fancy comfort food like bocconcini-stuffed garlic bread and deep-fried cauliflower, alongside traditional Scottish pub grub (cottage pie, bangers and mash, and fish ‘n’ chips). The steaks, which come from Wellington County Black Angus, are particularly good value.
