Reviewed November 22, 2012

I use to work at the Cairn and had not visited it for some time since it changed owners. I was very pleased to see that the internal decor has not been touched. Lovely cosy bar and lounge area, roaring fire and full of friendly locals and tourists. The food was fantastic! Very good value. Portions and Quality were perfect! I had the Veggie Burger option - sublime! If you are anywhere nearby then you owe it to yourself to drop by!

“Lovely food, great value, fantastic staff”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We ended up eating here while waiting to be rescued by the RAC. The food was excellent and really good value and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Looking forward to visiting again in less stressful circumstances!

“Stunning pub”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

I have been a regular visitor to carrbridge for the last 10 yrs and have used the cairn pub/ hotel so often,I do not stay at the hotel as we have a little self catering cottage we use,but the pub is a must food so good and always freindly staff,even the newest owners are just as nice as the last,pub always has a welcome fire in the colder weather,and it's location in is ideal and always busy,so nice to amble to the pub and just relax,well worth if your visiting the carrbridge area.
