“Probably one of the best meals we have had.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The two of us dined out on a Saturday evening and even although there was confusion over our booking they went to great trouble to fit us in.
Made us welcome and made sure everything was ready for us before taking us to our table.
The food was simply superb and they staff went to great lengths to ensure everything was OK for us.
Just wish more restaurants were as good.

“Amazing cheesecake”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Food is excellent. Well presented and good value. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The restaurant and bar have a nice atmosphere. I had the lamb, the chicken and the duck and enjoyed them all. The bakewell cheesecake is incredible. Highly recommended.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Quite how this restaurant has attracted so many rave reviews, I fail to understand. My experience was of average cooking, amateur presentation and inappropriate taste combinations. The bar area is distinctly run down and the dining room lacks character. In short, not somewhere I would recommend to a friend.

“Experience not to be forgotten!!!!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We turned up at this hotel restaurant and we were told very politely that it was booked out and there were no tables available. We decided to stay and have a drink as it is a lovely hotel. The dining room was full and so we sat and enjoyed the ambiance.. After an hour we were approached and asked if we still wanted a meal as they would make time for us after the last people. We were so pleased they did as the meal was the best we have had on our 6 weeks holiday from New Zealand around England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland. Not only that we were treated so well and everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were even allowed to park our motor home in the car park at the hotel as we had had a few drinks....thank you so much!!! We will definatley promote your hotel but I don't think you need it as we hear people already come from miles away.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We were on a break in Aviemore and decided to try the Rowan Tree. What a good call that was. Just a great experience. The staff were all very friendly, and the food was excellent, great choices well prepared and presented and delicious. And to finish, a cosy sitting room to enjoy a post dinner liqueur. Top marks!!
