Not being a lager drinker I have found that not many pubs sell a decent beer. Problem solved ! Just popped into the recently refurbished Drouthy Cobbler. Surprised, you bet!. Real ales and a wide range of locally produced beers and spirits. If you like yer malts ( as I do ) you will find a wide range of them in here. Tried a few today, and I'm glad I took the bus and not the car ! Honestly, you will love the variety stocked behind the bar. Staff are so knowledgeable and helpful if you can't tell yer drams fae yer elbows. Highly recommended. Alan ( Lossiemouth)

The Drouthy Cobbler is a very warm and welcoming pub. Not many pubs of this caliber about. Well worth a visit.
Their coffee is also the best in the area.

Great service, friendly staff, family friendly and a good selection of wines and spirits. Serve good tea/coffee and home bakes. Could add to the score with gf choices.

A nice place for a afternoon tea/coffee and a cake, even better place to have a local beer. The wife loves the Elderflower Gin they sell.

Went in for a couple of pints with my cousin from Livrrpool. Weegie accent, scouse accent....a wee bit to down-market for this lot, cold welcome, refused to engage, some beardy manager type avoided all eye contact at all times, really off-putting. I think they have a clearly defined 'type' of customer. Alright not wanting riff-raff...hope they have enough middle-class punters to fawn over...nice looking place too... Shame !!

Hi, Thank you for your comments. I'm really sorry that you got that impression that you did - most definitely not our intention. We aim to create an environment where everybody can feel welcome and we have obviously failed badly on this occasion. I can only apologise and promise that we take your comment seriously and will try harder. Thank you.
