Had a party of four. Ordered drinks and lunch around 2:00 pm. Finally ate at 3:00. The food we received was very good, no complaints there. If you are strapped for time pick another restaurant

Wandered up the close where The Drouthy Cobbler is and popped in to reminisce about when it used to be a 'French' wine bar back in the 80s! Well, how pleasantly surprised was I to find such a great wee place. Love the stripped back...More

Came across The Drouthy Cobbler on a two night stay in Elgin. The food is fantastic and I think the price justifies the quality of food. The barmen are very knowledgable about the drinks we had which were cocktails and gin. I would definitely recommend.

What a find! Had the mussels to start which were cooked to perfection and a few whiskeys from the wide selection they have on order. Reasonably priced and a great selection of food and drinks. Thumbs up!
