“Disappointed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

We were recommended this restaurant and visited as a party of seven. Several of us wanted the tuna steak to be told they had none. The food we had was quite mediocre. They did not have any port to drink with the cheese and biscuits. The service was ok, the waiting staff did try and but they seemed a bit out of their depth. The actual restaurant feels like being in a huge barn or function hall, not what you would call cosy. We would not return.

“I won't eat here again!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

I enjoyed a light lunch here in November last year when traveling north. In March i visited again telling my friend how good it was. I ordered mushroom soup and an egg sandwich with pea shoots. The soup was delicious however the sandwich had far too much mayonnaise, it was dripping out and the egg appeared to have no yolk! It was all white and the pea shoots. none not even as a garnish. I did report this to a passing waitress who said she would tell the chef. No apology or reduction in cost was given and I left very dissatisfied and somewhat embarrased as my friend had been looking forward to a really tasty lunch.

“Horrible, don't waste your money.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Ate in bar area. Stopped here on way to aviemore. It was simply horrible. Felt sorry for staff, there were 2 of them staffing the bar, coffee station AND bar/restaurant. This inevitably led to very slow and almost non existent service. The food was very very poor. Think greasy spoon quality. On top of that it was ridiculously expensive. I hate doing poor reviews, and maybe they were having a particularly bad day, but afraid this place deserves it on this occasion.

“Inexperienced staff??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Liked food on first night very much but disappointed second night. Waiter and waitress kept getting our order wrong. My steak was not cooked as I asked. Seating in the restaurant needs review to provide more tables.

“very pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We were staying just outside the village and looking for somewhere like a pub bar meal, but were diappointed with what the local inns had to offer. We went to this hotel expecting expensive meal. However the prices were not excessive and the quality of the food was very good.The wine offer also good. Would recommend to anyone looking for quality food with main meals around £10, with also a new pizza menu.
