My husband and I often take our dog into the public bar where, providing your dog is well behaved, they are welcome. There is always a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in here and the... read more

We went here for the carvery as we have not been for one in ages... The quality of the food was good just the quantity was a bit short on the meats. Overall not bad for the price. The service and staff first class could not fault them. Oh if you want a seat in the older part you will... More

Absolutely magic, come to the bar often for drinks but have only been for a few meals, they are simply amazing will be back. The Garlic Mushroom starter is the best I have ever had and I eat them a lot. The service from the waitress was fantastic and the bar maid Janice's banter is always on top form. Thank... More

I have wheat, dairy and egg intolerances but this wasn't a problem. They were able to offer substitute gravy for the roast, and point out which dishes were suitable or able to be adapted. Excellent food. You have to book, though, especially at the weekend, as it's very busy.

The Mosset Tavern is well run, friendly and well behaved dogs are welcome. The customers range from fairly young to pensioners. There is a good selection of reasonably priced nice food available in the bar and restaurant. The real ales are the highlight for me, there are usually five or six real ales available although because of the variety of... More

We are surprised to find a real good restaurant, where we could taste the real Scottish kitchen in a fitting atmosphere

The apps were tasty if just a bit smallish, especially for sharing, but the salmon was done perfectly, the white wine was the perfect compliment to the meal, and the Glenfarclas 105 was the perfect nightcap. It was just a bit of a let down that we couldnt eat in the dining room, and were pushed to the pub for... More
