This is a good place to eat whilst in Aviemore. You can eat cheaper if you eat before 7pm of if you fancy trying a few dishes then Thursday night they do a highland buffet, where you can try a few dishes.

We were staying in the hotel, and arrived late in the day, so decided to eat in the restaurant for convenience. Service was friendly. Good menu to choose from. Great tasting food. (Portion size maybe slightly off putting for a couple of the meals, but still enjoyable!) Reasonable value. Would definitely be back!

We stayed in McDonald Highlands Hotel and visited this hotel restaurant for a meal. We had eaten in The Cairngorm Hotel before so we knew that the food is amazing. We ordered traditional scottish food - lamb shank and venison stew.... both meals were very delicious. Large portions, so we hardly managed to it all. We decided to have a... More

As always when we visit or pass through Aviemore we stop here for lunch. As usual it was busy both Saturday and Sunday but we were seated and served quickly with friendly efficient attention. Pub grub good, hot and great portions. Recommend for outdoor activity visitors and families.
