We stopped off for a coffee and cakes on a road trip past The Lecht. The tray baked cakes were huge and we got them straightaway but the coffee took ages and we had finished the nice cakes by the time it was eventually served. Only one girl serving and making coffee in the restaurant. The 4 coffees and 4... More

A strange place. Uninterested service and bland, reheated food. A bad choice given the other options available.

We went there for a drink and evening meal , staff were friendly and the food was standard pub food. The area around the nice fire was nice , but the rest of the pub was like a " canteen". Got quiet quickly at night through the weekdays.

We popped into have a beer and the ladies a coffee. The staff were friendly and service was good. The coffee was fine, but the scones and cakes didn't taste as fresh as we would have expected, but reasonably priced

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
