Went through to the bar after the meal with my granny and i was choosing what cocktail to get, when an older angry looking barman said to my granny (ignoring the fact i was even there) " she wont be getting anything unless...

Dear clairesmithinv, Thank you for choosing to spend celebrating your special birthday with us and I'm delighted you enjoyed your meal. It's very saddening to read that this was somewhat spoiled by the incident you have described in the bar afterwards. It's always a sticky wicket asking a guest for ID and we do share best practice to ensure we... More

We stopped in at Mosset Tavern on our way back from a day trip to Lossiemouth while we were staying at Carrbidge on a family break and had the most amazing meal here. The Cajun Chicken was incredible and I would highly recommend. We also have two kids (7 & 4) who were given activity packs which they really enjoyed... More

Lovely surroundings and service was exemplary. In the daytime it looked like it would be a beautiful spot too. The food was delicious. I had linguine and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. And the puddings looked too nice to resist. Wish we didn't live in South East England or we'd go back in a hurry!

Booked a table for my friends birthday and when we arrived the had kindly put a balloon on the table which was a lovely touch. Both our adult meals were excellent and the kids meal went down a treat too. We would highly recommend the steak pie. Look forward to another visit soon.
