“Burgers are excellent, but pasta was poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Went here two nights running. First night had the most amazing burgers - fresh mince, cooked beautifully, great chips. Sadly went bad the second night (you should never go back, stick with the fond memories!) and had very poor spicy pasta which had no chef-love applied to it at all. Nice ambience, especially downstairs in the bar area, but stick to the burgers!

“Great après ski”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Has been top of the favourites list in Aviemore for many years. Do not be put off by its outward appearance. Get inside and enjoy some great food in a superb atmosphere.

“OK food, nice atmosphere, expenisve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Went with my partner on our skiing trip (shame about the lack of snow, more of that later).

We shared a starter of chilli nachos, these where very good with the chilli, homemade, in a bowl and nachos on the side to dip worked well.

Main course i had the burger, which was OK, not bad but not great. My partner had the chicken with a lemon/lime sauce that she thought was good, but nothing special.

The place itself has a good ambience to it with wooden tables and plenty of memorabilia on the walls, one thing i would say is that the milkshakes where brilliant.

In terms of the price it was in line with the rest of the places around there but I genuinely believe that for the price we paid, you should be looking at a top restaurant.

The thing that struck me, about the whole town, was how quiet it was due to the lackof decent skiing, I just hope that the owners of the places here have had the sense to save from the past few years of excellent trade with the better conditions and that we have a return to snow next year!
