“Reasonable and friendly”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

Firstly we'd like to compliment you on your well designed bar and friendly staff. We dinned here on our first night stay in aviemore and not only where we impressed with the quality of the food but the reasonable size portions we were served.
The staff were extremely pleasant and accommodating in regards to recommending different cocktail drinks t my taste.
We would definitely recommend your establishment to any visitors of aviemore.

Kind Regards

“Poor Customer Relations”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Decided to eat here on the first night of our stay in Aviemore and went in to book a table for that same evening. We were told that there was probably no need to book but, since we paricularly wanted a booth table, we specifically asked that one be reserved for us. Our reservation was duly noted in their book. On arrival at 7.30pm, all booth tables were occupied and when we enquired why one hadn't been reserved for us, the manager flatly denied having taken our reservation. No hint of an apology, just a downright denial - tantamount to calling us liars. Needless to say, we did not stay nor will we ever be tempted to visit again - no matter how good the reviews are here.

“Burgers are excellent, but pasta was poor”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

Went here two nights running. First night had the most amazing burgers - fresh mince, cooked beautifully, great chips. Sadly went bad the second night (you should never go back, stick with the fond memories!) and had very poor spicy pasta which had no chef-love applied to it at all. Nice ambience, especially downstairs in the bar area, but stick to the burgers!
