Had a lovely meal here when camping at the nearby Glenmore campsite. fresh local fare given a nice modern twist. Great local beer and a robust selection of whiskies. Staff friendly and numerous. Unfortunately no live music whilst we were there but plenty of flyers suggesting most other nights you would get some.

Stopped for lunch on a visit to Aviemore with the family. Had a nice goats cheese salad while wife had home made soup and son had venison burger. Good location next to the river which was good for the dogs in the hot weather. The hammocks in the shaded tree area across the road were a nice touch. Recommended!

Great beer, brilliant food, lovely atmosphere. Love this place. Pork cheeks particularly good but everything we ordered was enjoyed.

We popped in on or way North to the Moray coast on a Sunday afternoon. The pub is situated on a picturesque holiday park. The staff were welcoming and the atmosphere was lively but relaxed. The bar had a nice selection of beers and we were quickly shown to a table in the restaurant. We all went for the Sunday... More

There are two good reasons to go the the Old Bridge Inn. First and foremost the food and secondly the very limited choice in Aviemore. All you can eat Italian sound threatening to us... Once you are in this typical pub/inn you feel a very friendly atmosphere. The staff, young and very friendly, want you to have a great evening.... More

The atmosphere at the OBI is great - very laid back and friendly. The food is absolutely amazing and beautifully presented. Also has a great selection of local beers & ciders, and the staff are really helpful and approachable. What more could you need!

We visited here as a family of 4 out on a bike ride with the dog. We had a warm welcome as did our pooch too. The pub is homely and comfortable, and the coice of drinks second to non! Huge selection of whisky, a fantastic array of gin, and great local beers and ciders on tap too. Having had... More

Above average prices but was very busy on my visit which could have impacted the staff attitude. I came away somewhat disappointed with our meal. The menu is fairly limited although it does appear that it changes regularly. The portions tend to be small and in my view overpriced.

We visited this restaurant twice. The friendly waiting persons did their best to fit us in even though we didn't make a reservation (both times). Their starters, main courses and desserts are mouth-watering. We highly recommend it.

We tried this place during a 5 day stay in the area. We came away somewhat disappointed with our meal. The evening menu is fairly limited although it does appear that it changes regularly. The emphasis seemed to be on healthy alternative cooking but the portions are quite small and in my view overpriced. The venue seems to have a... More
