“So good we went back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

First visit was to the cafe - and the food & welcome was so good that we returned to the pub the next day. Loved the whisky collection, but sad that a) I was driving and b) I can't stand the stuff - sorry!

“Great whisky bar, good pub food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We dropped in for Sunday lunch and were pleasantly surprised. An excellent selection of whiskies was the cherry on the top of a tasty lunch. Good service, friendly atmosphere, great whiskies at very reasonable prices, all make for a great experience.

“Best place in the village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

The Fiddlers has the atmosphere of a pub rather than a restaurant, and the food was pub food as it should be. Great wholesome meals using local produce, accompanied by great local beer.

“A tourist treat, not a tourist trap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

We arrived as mixed party as the restaurant opened for lunch, one requiring a gluten-free meal. We were made very welcome and care was taken to ensure that the menu options were explained, particularly to meet the gluten-free need. Everyone had an excellent meal, the Highland Platter being especially good and locally-sourced. The choice of drinks was extensive and included local brews.
The atmosphere was very friendly and the staff were very accommodating, despite the restaurant becoming busy. The cost was very reasonable and we never felt hurried, which made the meal especially pleasant.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Myself and my wife went here for my 40th birthday meal and it was an excellent choice! Firstly I cant drink due to disability, not a problem alcohol free lager, that is a bonus in Scotland, especially a Whisky pub/restaurant! I had a steak that melted in the mouth and the wife had venison which she said was fantastic, the best she ever had. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem, I really do not praise places if they don't deserve it, this place really does deserve praise. Best place about the area for value and quality especially as it is in a tourist trap.
