We enjoyed the food here. It's pretty classic pub fare. The whiskey list is amazing as it contains personal tasting notes for most of their stock (ask for it at the counter).

A friend and I eat her this week, and we much disappointed. I had read the reviews on here, and have not really had a similar experience... There was a fair choice on the menu, and we both had the steak - not the best that we could have had I think. It was all a little ........ see the... More

Just a 5-minute walk from Aberlour Distillery, we stopped in for lunch after our whisky tasting. Food was okay and since we were on a tour of the distilleries in the area, we did not sample any of the whisky. Based on the food, it was decent and the service was great. We needed to be out in an hour... More

Went here on a whisky tasting and some lunch, great food and drinks and very attentive and pleasant staff. Busy during the whisky festival but well worth the wait.

We reserved a table for 6 in this whisky bar to have diner. All had the steak deal @ £20. Everything was OK, the meat, the fries and the sauce. Very friendly staff again, and the bill was a pleasant surprise. The Glenfarclass Family Cask 1952 however, we didn't order. At £1.500 a dram (35ml) was a bit above our... More

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.

We stayed in Aberlour for 4 nights in April and visited the Mash Tun a couple of times during our stay. The first time was just for a few drinks on a Friday night and to our surprise at 5pm were offered the choice of free Cajun chicken wings. Obviously we jumped at the chance and they were delicious.
