Was looking forward to the buffet as it's easy for the kids and also normally good fun. Food wasn't replenished very often and pizzas were stone cold. Pastas were pretty tasteless. Unfortunately won't be back

As I have just become an old age pensioner, I find that I am happier having a big meal at lunchtime, rather than in the evening. This has its advantages - as eating out at lunchtime is often much better value than eating out in...More

Visited on a short break to aviemore. £40 for 2 adults and kid with drinks. Cannot fault that. Quality of pasta and pizza were amazing. Been craving the place for 3 days now. Need to get back up soon. Waitresses also attentive when collecting plates.
