Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Matty was really helpful and his customer service was amazing. He always had a smile on his face and made our experience really enjoyable.

The service was very slow, the staff don’t seam to know how to run a pub. The food was cold and a train monkey could better. Will never return to the place ever again.

After a 4hr drive to Elgin for our nephews Motocross racing on Sunday we visited here as a family of 8 as we were staying in the premier inn next door, we arrived at the resturant at approx 6pm to be told they could not...accomodate a table of 8, we then asked for 2 tables of 4 but again we were told they could not take us even though we could visibly see loads of empty tables, we looked on-line to discover we could get a booking for 8 people at 7pm, i then went back in and spoke to the same guy who i wish i had taken his name as he should not be working on the front of the desk, his attitude and customer skills were horrendous, i asked if we could sit and have a drink till then, again we were told they couldnt accomodate us, when i told him we could book online he stormed off telling me he would have to speak with his manager, next thing the manager appeared and was able to give us a table. if it hadnt been we had 2 young kids with us that needed something to eat trust me we wouldnt have waited about, next time we head up to Elgin for the racing we will make sure we have had something to eat before arriving.More

Came at 5pm fairly quiet, Waited over an hour and a half to get food with children, food came and had clearly been sat under a hot light for a while. Had steak asked for medium rare it came like shoe leather... Took ages for...for the table to be cleared to get deserts that were ordered for kids. Things have certainly gone down hill here as it used to be a cracking restaurant. Would not recommend.More

Staying at hotel, for local business. The pub is pretty amazing. Staff have gone above and beyond to accommodate us in every way. Good clean drinks & food is always piping hot & served with a smile. Will definitely be coming back.

Great menu selection, with some exciting new additions. Always good value, and friendly service, improvements appear to have been made to the kitchen service, the extra touches are very welcome. The Sunday Roast is outstanding and amazing value. The Banoffee Cheesecake is to die for...! Well worth a visit.More

14 of us cramped into a corner. Table was booked at 4 we ordered food at 4.15 and at 5pm the waitress who had taken our order came to tell us the order had not actually went through to the kitchen and she would need...to take our order again. Eventually received our food all at different times one meal was completely cold and another had to also be returned as the steak was pink when it should have been medium to well done. We did receive free desserts and juice. The cheesecakes were frozen. The meal plates were not tidied before receiving our desserts and when we asked for them to be tidied only a few were removed. Table beside the door to outside play area had not been cleaned as breakfast bowls and plates were still sitting there. Staff were overheard speaking about customers. Defiantly will not be back and would not recommend eitherMore

I had a table booked for 3.30pm and arrived at around 3.25pm. The gentleman who greeted us in the plaid shirt told us there was no booking for us even though i had a confirmation on my phone/email and said he would see if he...could fit us in. He then came back to us and sat us down at a table and said to order at the bar and that there was no fish available. The building was empty other than approx 4 tables which had people at them. We were put in a cramped table although there was multiple empty and when my father asked if we could move to a larger table the same man said that in an hour all the tables would be fully booked. (So we understood that from 4.30pm the place would be fully booked) . My father said that we had booked online and the member of staff said that the online booking system was closed off at 9am becuase they were fully booked. Our food took around 45mins to get to us and when it did the server handed my mother the vegan pie, which upon starting to eat it realised it was the chicken and ham pie she had been served which is completely unacceptable. I had to chase up the fact that a side hadnt been served to the table even though there were basically 4 tables of customers in the whole building. During our visit (and after we had ordered and paid) we were told that the beef burgers were not available and also the vegan torte. Basically my mother ended up with the childrens vegan dessert option which i assume you will agree is not the same price as the £4.99 vegan adult torte. The only good thing about the visit was one member of staff called Ben, he started his shift not long before we left but was very professional and polite. We left at 5.30pm and the place was still mostly empty (i have photos). We were actually approached by customers at another table who laughed with us about how shambolic an experience it was. £120 out of pocket and we then had to visit Mcdonalds next door because we were so hungry!More

Called in for dinner around 6pm on a Tuesday evening. Place virtually empty but told only serving premier inn guests this evening. No reason given. Good you are in a position as a business to turn away a family of 6. Won't visit again.

Have been a frequent visitor in the past however due to the terrible standard of food and service for a few months now we had stopped returning. The kids had wanted breakfast today so we thought we would chance our luck again. Pleased to say...there has been a vast improvement in service and quality of food. Food today was well prepared and actually hot. Staff (Kim) were attentive and on top of keeping the food topped up and fresh. Happy to return again.More

I drive up to Elgin for a meeting the following day. Travelling through the snow I was hoping to eat in the restaurant. Having checked in at the hotel next door I was told to “go soon”. I did that after dumping by my bad...in the room arriving at 8.32pm and was told orders end at 8.30pm. Fantastic and helpful hospitality. I will stay and eat somewhere else next time. Loved the menu in the room….. if only I could eat thereMore

After reading the reviews, I was a bit sceptical but we had a lovely meal here last night. Prices are fair, staff are lovely. We arrived 30 mins earlier than our booked time but that wasn't an issue, we were shown to our table and...told just order at the bar when ready. Definitely go here again!More

Not 100% sure, they normally have an arrange of puddings on display in a glass cabinet, i don't remember seeing the waffle but it could have been there, they do have a big selection.
