We went here for my stagger meal on the Saturday night. Booked for 22 guys a few weeks beforehand. Gathered all the orders and sent them by email, so easy to work with. Meal packages were great, good value. When we arrived everything was perfect. Staff a good laugh and a wide range of craft beer. Food was good, but... More

Having booked Mackenzies for a one night stay over with my wife, we where extremely disappointed in the room, we asked for a change however none available, the decor is appalling and looks like it was paint by a child, the beds look as if they have been there since the building was built, the rooms are nothing like the...

The food was fabulous and potions were large. The staff were friendly and helpful. The décor is a little dated however we were all very pleased with our meals and the staff accommodated my son's requests (he's quite a fussy eater!) with no problems. Food was very reasonably priced too.

A busy sports style bar which won't appeal to all however the food is good, the welcome is good so don't let the busyness of the pub put you off. Service is quick and they get you seated as soon as they can. A decent menu though limited to the standard pub fayre but check out the blackboard specials. The... More

Menu is basic. 2of the orders were straight forward but so should have mine, as I was wishing the stag burger with out the black pudding (not a fan) but with haggis instead. The... More

Restaurant is not a bad looking place, but staff were overwhelmingly rude and the food took over an hour to arrive. Machines in the washroom are a funny conversation starter when you've been waiting so long for food though!

Every year the mackenzie is our first port of call when we are at thunder in the glen. This year it wasnt near as good as any other year we have been up. Menu wasn't as good, atmosphere wasn't as good and the toilets were stinking! Next year we will see what like, fingers crossed its back to its usual... More
