“Nice place, good music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

We went in here for a drink on the way back to our hotel. The staff were very helpful and it was child friendly. There was a singer playing who was good. Nice relaxing place.

Beautiful great value local produce, owned by locals, staffed by locals. Fantastic value for money and excellent service! We'll definately be back :)

Much better than the dreadful Indian it used to be!

“Great new restaurant & bar in Aviemore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

Delighted to discover a new restaurant in Aviemore and one with great food & service! The portions were excellent and the specials board complimented the menu. It was a challenging selecting! We were pleased to see live music as well. Fingers crossed that it's still there when we return next year!

“Best beer in town...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

Didn't manage to fit in a meal at Ben Mac's, but the beer selection was great, with the best poured pint of Stag all week. Barman was very friendly and helpful. Look forward to returning for a meal next time we are up. (*We spoke to another family on holiday who said it was far and away the best food in town.)
