I visit the Mosset every time I go to Forres. The food is lovely, the service is quick, friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is welcoming. They are happy to cater to requests, throw a good party and often have live music on in the bar. Also, worth noting they allow dugs in the bar.

This restaurant is an absolute gem of a place, the food is really really nice, its spacious, your not bumping into or overhearing the table next to you and the staff were very polite and friendly. The Management/Owner have got it spot on. We cant wait to go back.

What a fantastic venue for a 50th birthday party with 60 friends The food was superb and the staff, from the management to the cleaners, was caring, happy and couldn't do too much to meet our needs. For a great party venue, get in touch with the managers early on so that they can fully support all of your needs.... More

Food was OK, lovely decor, atmosphere could have been better. Don't buy the house wine. Could have played darts if they had any chalk
