We had a family meal in this bar on steak Saturday. Had excellent steaks for six people with accompanying whisky suggestions. Great way to enjoy both. Meal was excellent, whisky choice was also good. Altogether a great experience

Charming, small pub with fantastic service. I couldn't fault the waiting staff but the food i would say was decidedly average. We waited over half hour for baguettes, chips weren't hand cut which I would have expected for the price. Not a fan of the squeezy bottle of ketchup on the table either. I would go back if I were...

We were 8 whisky-loving friends on our semi-regular whisky-tour to Scotland, this time to Speyside. I tried to get a room at the Mash Tun when I drove past a few years back, but at that time it was fully booked. They only have 5 rooms, all individually named after local whisky-brands, and luckily; this time we pre-booked, and got...

We arrived in Aberlour and were shown up to our lovely, river view room. We then discovered there was a pub quiz in the whisky pub downstairs! The food was excellent and the drinks were plentiful. We each had a whisky from our birth year as well as several others. Very welcoming staff, great food, great drink, and in the...

We stayed at the Mash Tun, having previously visited for an evening meal and being really impressed. The rooms were large and very comfortable, and the place has a great location, overlooking the River Spey. We were staying in Aberlour, as we were visiting both the Macallan and Glenfarclas distilleries, and the Mash Tun is situated well for both, and...

Having just come back from a stay at the Mash Tun, I cannot recommend highly enough. The rooms were excellent, food amazing and Mark and Karen, the perfect hosts. The Tun has an excellent range of whiskeys and I would definitely recommend the Glenfarclas tasting session.

We found this great pub under "pubs with rooms" and were extremely pleased with our find. The bar staff were very friendly and welcoming from the start and the owners Karen and Mike continued that welcoming feeling. We ate in the pub each night and the food was good with very generous portions! The choice of whisky in the bar...
