Great family lunch

Popped in for lunch whilst on holiday in Aviemore. Varied menu, good kids selection and very friendly staff. Would recommend.

We ate here along with our one and a half year old daughter and the staff were fantastic. All of them took the time to speak to my daughter and made us feel very welcome. The food was fantastic and there was a great choice. Only problem for me was the fact I had the fire in the hole burger.... More

The chargrilled venison burger was a bit greasier than i would have expected, but it was okay. Coffee was tasteless. Service was friendly and pleasant but too many interruptions. So annoying whilst trying to have a conversation. Clean toilets and child friendly. Music needing adjusting. Would i go again.....maybe in a year or so to see if any improvements were... More

This is our third visit here the first one being 5 years ago when it first opened. The service was just as friendly and enthusiastic as when it first opened. The food was good and our 13 and 11 year old were speechless at size of burger and desserts. The memorabilia around the restaurant makes for good conversation and to... More

Me and my friend and her son thought this would be a nice place to eat for a Sunday Roast to end off our weekend away! How disappointing this was, it was the worst roast dinner we have ever had, dry roast beef, vegetables were boiled and out of a frozen packet of veg, swimming in a puddle of watery... More

Burnt, greasy, dry over cooked, re-heated frozen food! Possibly the worst meal we have had for many years. Service was fantastic - extremely child friendly (Keep this in mind if you want a quite meal for one or two). Amazed at how many positive reviews the place has, we must have hit an off night..
