I have never had a bad experience here, the staff are all lovely and friendly and the food is always good, I don't think I could find a fault with this place and they are really helpful when it comes to booking a party of people in for a special occasion, will definitely keep going back :)

Called in here last night for a meal. Food and service was as previous visits - first class. This time I opted for the Mile High Burger and just about managed to complete it, but I enjoyed every mouthful. Washed down with a refreshing pint of Guinness - really good ! Service was polite, prompt and friendly. Next time back... More

Visited area in May and popped in here for a meal following a recommendation from some locals. Have to say we weren't disappointed! Good choice of dishes, struggled to chose but the Cajun cream chicken was yummy! Nice surroundings and lovely friendly service with a smile.

A cross between a restaurant and quality pub grub. The Mosset has got the mix right. Good food, good service, good surroundings, good prices.

The locally brewed beer was very good and hopefully the micro brewery will do well. The food was very standard Scottish pub. Suffice to say that the next time we were in Forres we looked elsewhere to eat but we would not rule it out to try again in the future, perhaps.

I'm sorry our food offering didn't have the same affect and would urge you to visit us again and choose from our restaurant menu and to... More

We visit Forres every year and had two evening meals in the Mosset. It is a busy place and booking is recommended. Friendly staff, great service and very good meals. We can recommend the Steak and Ale Pie and the home made burger. The Mosset is clean, has a nice atmosphere and is most comfortable.

The Mosset Tavern is a lovely restaurant by the river. The décor is traditional Scottish and the food was fab, and reasonably priced. The place is always fully booked, so you need to book in advance. but I don't think you would be disappointed.
