I had booked a table of 12 for my sisters 50th birthday celebrations. We have had previous family celebration lunches here and the food and service is always great. There is a wait but the food is freshly prepared using local ingredients and you are told to expect this. Staff are so friendly and helpful and we were even given...

Excellent little pub nestled in Aberlour, very good fare, delicious desserts, and a stellar whisky collection. Recommend booking in advance for dinner during the tourist season, as it gets full quickly.

Delicious food and their whisky list is more like a bible! We were very happy and impressed with the food, decor, service and whisky options. Book in advance in case they are busy. Right by the River Spey if you have a chance to check that out too.
