My husband and I went for a late lunch today. The waitress was friendly, attentive and has excellent people skills. I'm afraid I don't know her name but she was a pleasant young blonde girl. The Manager/owner was equally as friendly. The food was presented well, tasted fantastic and excellent value for money. If you haven't eaten here, you must. Thank you for a lovely meal :-).

“Lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Our party of eight dined early Saturday evening. The place was really busy and had a good buzz about it. Staff were efficient and attentive.

The mile high burger was just that! Two 8oz burgers with all the trimmings (and some) served on a bun with fries. The lamb shank on mustard mash was really tasty and tender, a half portion of roast beef with all the trimming was delicious. Italian style cod looked amazing, fish and chips and scampi and chips also hit the right spot. Fresh veg was also served.

A really good meal. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it

“" More than just a tavern..."”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

We enjoyed a great dinner, my husband had fish and chips and I had the daily roast special which was lamb. Both entrees were excellent, we chose the smaller portion options and we had plenty. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Mosset Tavern!

“A good find.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

On a stopover in Forres visiting family. It was a Saturday so phoned over to see what time we could get a table at.

Once that was booked we headed over. It's advisable to phone ahead to book a table. Menus can be viewed on their website, and they also have a n email contact for bookings if the booking is a bit further ahead than on the day.

Set alongside the river, the setting was quiet and clean. There are some tables to sit outside if the weather permits.

Impressed with the service, attentive but not overbearing.

There are a good few vegetarian choices - nice to see a variation of veggie dishes too - not just the normal veg lasagne etc. - Nice to have something different and plenty of whisky to choose from.

Furnishings were purples and tartans. The venue felt cosy and warm when visited in October '13

There is disabled access and a ground level toilet.

Portion sizes were decent.

Well worth a visit, tasty food and you'll leave very full! I felt the value for money was excellent.

There is a small car park on site which is free to use.
