How delightful to find this hotel of considerable charm near Aberlour. We sank into the comfortable sofas in the charming lounge filled with paintings, soft comfortable furniture and good lighting. The menu looked very tempting and it was actually quite difficult to choose.
I chose the crispy pork belly and chilli prawns which were good, my husband had mussels which he pronounced as excellent (I tried the sauce which was indeed very good) and my sister had the cheese soufflé which she thoroughly enjoyed. We all went for the venison main course and it was absolutely delicious, the venison was beautifully cooked and so tender and melt in the mouth it was pure pleasure to eat. We did not have dessert, but they did look very interesting and tempting. The house red wine was very good indeed and perfect temperature. All in all I wish we could have eaten here every night as some of our experiences elsewhere only highlighted this bistro as one of the nicest meals out we have had in some time. I would imagine that the hotel and the breakfast are up to the same standard. Glad to see they got a certificate of excellence - I am not surprised.
