I have eaten here before and the food was OK so thought I would try it again. We were met by a rather stand offish lady who took our order and we went and sat down, awaiting our food. Having chosen the lamb described as TWO succulent lamb chops. When it arrived, we only had ONE each. My friend went... More

Having been very disappionted and feeling ripped off at the Old Firestation in Tomintoul, we went into the Glen Avon and were very pleased with their offering which was not nearly so expensive, free sauce and much more bacon! Very friendly staff and a reasonable cup of tea and coffee

Needs more Scottish brews. But the crowd was fun and it was a great little taste of a country pub. The people were friendly and I'm glad that they let dogs into the bar.

The poached salmon with potatoes was very tasty, with a massive sized piece of fish for 9.50 UK pounds. Best of all, it was healthy, simply poached with a smattering of lemon butter that gave it a nice flavor without being in the least oily or heavy, a welcome change from all the deep fried and cream-based dishes often found...

We didn't stay in the hotel but we did stop by for an afternoon drink and returned for an evening meal. The place was busy yet that didn't effect the service! Best Mac and Cheese I have had in a long time!

We ate in the bar when staying in a hotel nearby. We had a very reasonably priced and enjoyable evening meal. We sat on big leather couches in front of an open fire. We felt like it was home from home.
