Visited Mosset Tavern today to celebrate a family birthday. Staff were friendly and attentive and food was tasty and hot and generous helpings Two courses from the lunch menu cost ten pounds which I think is really good value. Would highly recommend a visit.

Plus treats for the dog provided by the staff! We occasionally have a meal in the beautifully decorated, cosy lounge. Meals are always hot & well presented & excellent quality. Menus have... More

I came here for a work Christmas meal, I have been here with friends before but it's always a bit different when you're part of a large group. The staff were welcoming and very friendly which is usual for this place, we were quickly shown to our table so we could settle in. We had all pre-ordered and this went... More

Myself and 3 friends visited the Mosset Tavern last night for our annual get together and we were delighted with everything. We were given a warm welcome and shown to our table. When we asked if we could eat off the Christmas menu, our table was immediately transformed with crackers and balloons and the festive menus were produced with no... More

While staying in Forres the weekend, we had occasion to eat at the Tavern. The dining room was fully booked but the very charming waitress pointed us in the direction of the bar. Will say the company was entertaining, the food was spot on, and not too far off the main drag. Would recommend this one with no problem.

As always, the Mosset Tavern gave us the warmest welcome on our visit last night. The food is delicious....highly recommend the creamy Cajun chicken (delicious!). The atmosphere and service are so good that I'd like to give an overall score of 10 if I could! Cocktail menu is worth trying too...... Gordon and his team are 1st class! Five stars... More
