Above average but not as good as last time

So firstly looking around the place, the menus. Some kind of re-branding/new management/franchising thing seems to be going on. I could be wrong but there seems to have been a bit of a reshuffle of some kind. I’ve been in a few times before. Reviewed a few times before. Some terrible, some great... read more

The heading says it all, really - we thoroughly enjoyed the food, the staff were extremely pleasant, the service very good and the prices very reasonable. What more can you ask from a restaurant?

Always love the food here. The day menu which must be ordered before 5.45 pm is slightly smaller portion size but fantastic value for money. Good atmosphere too. Also lovely venue for weddings.

Only 2 vegetarian mains while meat eaters get a large selection (approx 22 items) It was £9.95 for an average macaroni cheese & chips with leaves (some brown) I'd still recommend it if you eat meat. Having returned here a over a year and a half later. There has been many changes to the menu. It used to be in... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is only through feedback such as yours that we can evaluate our offering and service (the good and the bad) and it would seem that on this occasion we fell short of the mark for which I'm truly sorry. I'm not sure how prudent or beneficial it would be to... More

Went for lunch with the loon. He had burger and chips followed by sticky toffee pudding, whilst I had the special salmon and Eton mess. Son was very satisfied whilst mine was good, the pickled onions in the veg were a bit unnecessary !

We have visited the Mosset Tavern twice with 5 year old twins during our week long stay in Forres. Both visits have been between 4-6pm on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon and we have not booked a table. However any later the booking would have been necessary as they were getting busy as we were finishing up. The staff were... More

If I tell you about the Sunday carvery, promise me you won't turn up the same Sunday as me. I hate queues! I've been three times now, especially for the Sunday presentation - and some presentation it is. Three or four choices of meat and help yourself veggies, all beautifully cooked. I was "stappit fu" (Google it!) for hours afterwards.... More

Went here for a meal with the missus and the wee one we both had a steak it was brilliant. Can't really remember what the wee one was eating but I think she enjoyed it. The only down side was that it took ages to take our order then every few bites someone came to ask if everything was alright.... More

Recently visited as a first timer. The food was lovely, large portions and a great selection on the menu. The food was also very good value for money. The staff were also lovely, very friendly and gave a speedy and prompt service. Couldn't fault the place and would most definitely return.
