We’ve used the Mosset several times throughout lockdown for food and cocktails and for good reason. Food is comforting yet also made to a high standard and their cocktails are superb! The staff always sound so positive and helpful even though they must be rushed...off their feet. Well done Gordon and team Mosset for all your hard work!More

Our first time trying the Mosset's fabled lockdown home delivery service did not disappoint. Delivered at the promised time, the Asian banquet at £25 provided ample delicious food for two hungry people. And extra brownie points for using compostable containers in paper bags rather than...the dreaded polystyrene and plastic. Top marks all round.More

Have been to the Mosset Tavern before a few years ago for lunch when myself and my husband were on holiday. Now we have moved up North we thought we would visit again. We were a bit apprehensive as this is our first lunch out...during COVID restrictions but we needn’t have worried. The staff were lovely and friendly, social distancing was evident , hand sanitizer present and track and trace all done with no fuss. Our lunch was excellent. Large portions, great choice but sadly no room left for dessert. It was very busy which is great to see for the hospitality industry at present. Would certainly recommend and return again.More

Managed to visit several times over the summer while at our caravan in Findhorn. Staff are brilliant, very welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and very hard working. Great atmosphere despite social distancing. Beer garden was lovely sitting with a Gin by the Riverside soaking up the sun....Restaurant has beautiful decor and the food is delicious, always served piping hot and promptly. Definitely worth a visit if you are in area.More

Unexpected find for a late lunch. Service was great and food was even better! My partner has the haddock goujons and I had the steak and ale pie. They both came fresh and piping hot. One of the best pies I’ve ever tasted. The fish...was very tasty too. Highly recommend a visitMore

It is a very safe and clean restaurant and pub and service very good. My burger and chips tasted good. My mum had a roast dinner. She wasn't asked how many slices of meat she wanted nor did they advise what vegetables were on offer....Yorkshire pudding was overcooked. Carrots were hard. Can you please ask people how many sices of meat they would like and advise customers what vegetables are available that day with the roast dinnerMore
