OH WE DO LOVE A NICE SURPRISE! WE’D BEEN PUT OFF BY THE SCRAWLED A-BOARD OUTSIDE OFFERING A NEW MENU, BUT THE TIPSY LAIRD WON US OVER WITH GREAT FOOD. Is it getting harder to spot the clues to a good or a bad restaurant? Once upon a time you could avoid places with laminated menus, perhaps, or scampi and... More

We dine here when in Kingussie but on our latest visit we were highly impressed by the standard of cooking coupled with the excellent service from the very competent staff. They make sure you have everything you need and are delighted when the food is complemented...and it does deserve compliments. Try it and see! We'll be back!

We were blown away at the quality and presentation of this cuisine. The prices were very affordable and the service was great. We had a variety of dishes and all were presented as if we were in a 5 star establishment. The taste of each was beyond fantastic. Chefs go above and beyond to ensure you thoroughly enjoy your dinning... More

We were staying overnight in a B&B in Kingussie, and found The Tipsy Laird by wandering Hi Street. There are two rooms: one with real atmosphere and the other with just some bare tables. We were seated in the latter. Tip: make a reservation if you know in advance that this is where you're headed. If you like pubs, note... More

We had the burger and the red mullet. Both were ok. The burger was a good portion. Nice informal atmosphere, decent amount of choice. Reasonable value. Took a while to get the bill. Would probably go again, but would try somewhere else first

The food was excellent, and reasonably priced. Service good, staff friendly. What more can you ask for from the local pub?!

My wife and I dined here after being disappointed with the menu at another establishment and we were thoroughly impressed by the standard of cooking and excellent service by the friendly staff.
