“Well Worth a Try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

This was a cracking meal on our first night in Braemar.

I had the game pie which was delicious, all locally sourced ingredients, freshly made. My Dad had the baked Salmon in Hollandaise sauce, which he'd highly recommend.

“very friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

My son Rob and i came here as he wanted pasta and thought that all bistros servered pasta. We were a little dissapointed that there was no kids menu with pasta on it. We asked the waitress who said she was only helping out. She went off to ask chef. They produced a fantastic bowl of pasta with sauce and my steak was done perfectly. Both me and Rob really enjoyed our dinner. Your temp member of staff was lovely and very friendly.
