“Very friendly and cosy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The barman went out of his way to sort a table out for us when we were standing with our drinks which was very courteous. We enjoyed the live entertainment, food looked nice and later we had a wee shot on the pool table. We only expected to stay for one drink but ended up staying for several hours as they made us feel so welcomed.

“Genuine hotel pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We were a party of 8, visiting the Glen Hotel Restaurant.

All of us had something from the pub menue and it met our expectations.

The food, the interior, the friendly staff made our visit pleasant.

Value for money!

“We're still looking for the grumpy staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We were staying in Newtonmore for a week so consulted TripAdvisor for the best places to eat and discovered The Glen. We were a little apprehensive at first after reading some reviews that suggested problems previous guests had had with surly staff ... We are still looking for them! We enjoyed the food so much we went twice, on both occasions the staff in the bar were welcoming and attentive, even offering us free samples of the Ales they had on tap that night so we could decide which to go for.
Although run like a traditional pub with a large menu and orders taken at the bar, do not be put off, the food is excellent and is almost certainly made to order as it doesn't come flying out the kitchen five minutes after ordering. On both occasions we visited, everyone really enjoyed what they ordered, we can particularly recommend their curries and burgers and their cappuccinos were declared to be the best in the village by a very discerning member of our party.
A final note, it may be worth booking as it promises to be extremely popular whatever day you go.
