We regularly visit the Mosset Tavern. Extremely friendly, welcoming staff, lovely atmosphere and the food is consistently excellent. Always worth a visit if you are in town but best to book a table as it's a popular place.

Found this place after arriving in Forres for a distillery tour. Great value fresh food in the afternoon with some great beers and malts. Popped back later in the evening for a drink and there was a brilliant live local band playing and the atmosphere was jumping. Also stopped in for coffee and lunch on the way back to the... More

Book a table, as it is a very popular place, but the food is good and well priced. Unfortunately, it can get a bit noisy.

We visited for drinks only (not a meal). The bar was run down and was 70's style decor with a very high ceiling. Bar staff friendly but generally felt the place needed TLC.
