We have been through Aviemore a few times and never discovered this little gem until recently. We had a look at the menu outside and went inside for a closer look, inside is very welcoming, many tables to choose from and engaging bar staff. The food did nothing to diminish our opinion of the Winking Owl. They have a large menu with much to choose from, as luck would have it there was a special on of slow braised lamb shank with rosemary and garlic mash, stewed red cabbage and my favourite, honeyed parsnips and carrots, perfect for the cold snap we found ourselves in. The young chef came out to ask our opinions of the lamb special as it was planned to go on the new menu, we had no comlaints and wouldn't have changed a thing, well seasoned, meat was melt in the mouth and the gravy rich and flavoursome. We will be back again to sample more of this well priced, generously portioned and well cooked food.
