Totally outstanding food. We are huge foodies and amazed to find this on our doorstep having visited for the first time this week. Fantastic food ( real class) great service, lovely staff and atmosphere. Can't recommend it enough. Had I been paying double what it cost for the meal I would still have been delighted.

Good atmosphere in this pub facing to a small lake in Forres. We had eaten the special dishes made of four different types of meat with side dishes at our choice. The staff has been very polite, also with our two hungry children! The stop was worth the price which is absolutely good. Highly recommended!

Six of us went to the Mosset for a quiet supper and we all found the food to be excellent. I had the goat's cheese bruchetta for my starter and it was divine. A couple of the guys had steak which was cooked perfectly to order. All the portion sizes were very generous and well presented. The service was very... More

We took two friends from Texas who were suitably impressed. The food was excellent and the three real ales on offer were all vey good. The service was very good and the staff very attentive. Worth a visit but make sure you book in advance.
