Had a very good sandwich here, but the Haggis Nachos we ordered as a starter were very good and quite spicy! Also the Sticky Toffee Pudding was by far the best I had.

Ate twice here when visiting the area. Excellent food reasonably priced delivered with excellent service. Easy access and parking along with access to the Speyside walk and playpark. I would highly recommend The Mash Tun if you are visiting Aberlour
