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.

I suspect the Silverfjord is not long for this world. The dining room was freezing cold , half of it set up for breakfast.It also appeared to be a pub with no beer - I had their last can of Doom bar, the only non-lager...option on offer. It was also served in a novel way - the unopened can dumped in the top of a pint glass. I made the mistake of ordering the 'home made' burger, I am not sure what it was made of but I don't think any cows were harmed in its making. My wife's fish and chips was OK, but came with no peas, just a piece of torn up lettuce. Chips were cooked ok, though. We didn't stay for dessert, we were in and out in just over an hour, £37 poorer and wiser.More

Truly the worst meal I’ve ever experienced in my life. Phoned to book a table and was told we could only have 6:30, but when we arrived there was nobody else there. Ordered a bottle of red wine and we’re given a “British” red wine...made from imported South African grape juice. We couldn’t open the screw top bottle at first but when we got into it we found it was like the worst grape juice you’ve ever tried. It was as if the barman/waiter had never heard anyone ask for wine before and grabbed a fake bottle off the shelf that was made for display. The glasses were dirty. I ordered the macaroni as thought anything else might be risky given the cleanliness of the place, I wish I’d just walked out at that point. What I was served was a tin of Heinz macaroni and some raw potatoes masquerading as chips. My partner tried the macaroni and straight away agreed it was tinned - it’s such a distinctive taste that we both remember from childhood. He got the scampi and was served some generic, back of the feeezer scampi which he said was edible, but again with raw chips and a wilting salad. Unfortunately the radiator behind me belting out 30 degree heat in the height of summer, the congealed sugar bowl from breakfast and the stray dog running around the dining room didn’t do much to improve the atmosphere. The most shocking part was that I paid £37 for this experience just to get out of there as quickly as possible. I can’t say enough how disappointed we were with this place after reading such positive reviews and looking at the menu online. The real life experience is the complete opposite. Just don’t go, trust me!More

Shabby but not chic. Had eaten here 5 years ago and it was fab but not a patch now with a very restricted and unjustifiably pricy menu. Nothing to write home about but the young lady who served us was great.

You can tell the Silverfjord has had better days. The decor is very tired and jaded. Due to Covid the actual menu offered is 40% of that on their website. Having said that the waitress is really their saving grace,very friendly and helpful. Being a...Sunday they were only selling a roast dinner,which was very filling and not bad value. Pub grub really,ok but not exceptional.More

We (me, vegetarian wife & 10yo son) ate here during a recent trip to the area. We really struggled to get a table reservation anywhere nearby and ended up in the Silverfjord. My son's breaded chicken was very good, but the rest Chicken Sizzlers &...Veggie Curry was ok, but pricey. My breaded mushroom starter looked like it was straight out the freezer, and the desserts were average and certainly not worth £5.75 each. The service was however efficient and friendly. Would I eat here again, very unlikely.More

Very good service and food! Friendly waitress and the restaurant was pleasant. We ate during the 'Help out' campaign so the bill was great!

We had dinner here as two families of 8 people. Approaching from the church car park, the building, quirky name and modern font of the ‘Silverfjord’ promised a more stylish setting than what was presented as we entered through the bar. As others have noted,...the decor was rather shabby and the dining room felt very much like the back room of a bar rather than a restaurant in its own right. The Coco Pops left out on a table and tinsel on the antlers on the wall added to the feeling that the proprietors didn’t care about the customer experience. That said the young lady that served us was attentive and friendly. Sadly one of the 8 meals (a fish dish) was sent back as it tasted off. Also the steaks were not brilliant but the burgers were enjoyed by the children. We benefited from the ‘eat out to help out’ scheme but we felt the meals would have been quite overpriced at their menu prices.More

Health hazard This hotel is rather disappointing there’s so much mould in the bathroom, there’s no toiletries and unfortunately the temperature and state of our room was on par with the service which was non existent. The girl in the bar was lovely though.

We stopped en route for a bite to eat and were very pleasantly surprised by the level of hospitality and quality of the food. Barmaid and chef went out of their way to make us feel at home. Would recommend this place as a pleasant...alternative to the hustle & bustle of nearby Aviemore !!More

All the staff were lovely, especially the bartender who was very helpful and really went out of her way to accommodate us. She was chatty, very good at recommending drinks, and made us feel like we were locals. The dog was also very cute.

This is just a little pub in a small village, the prices were over the top and the food was under the counter. We found the service poor to the point of being ignored, our meals were badly prepared and took forever to arrive and...the prices were ridiculously. They were serving Co-op best wine for three times the Co-ops prices. This is a very quiet, small country pub with aspirations of being a gold mine, actually it’s as dirty as a coal mine. You are a crappy pub with crappy food, stick to what you know.More

We are here yesterday evening because we saw they had lamb shanks on the menu. Well if it's the last thing you ever do you have to try them. They were to die for!! Served with mashed potato and mixed vegetables and a fabulous gravy,...all of very generous portions we ate till we were ready to burst. A meal worth every penny of the £14.95 each. The staff were lovely and the Chef was very friendly and came and had a chat with us. Wish we had discovered this hotel earlier in our holiday.More
