Have had a number of meals here. With the odd exception the food has been great. Visited last week and had the humble haddock and chips. It was very good and clearly fresh haddock. The beer is always excellent. The staff are always friendly and helpful

Stayed in hotel and had breakfast which was really good fresh produce which was cooked to order. Lovely view overMoray Firth from restaurant. Also we wanted a light snack and staff were happy to accommodate this by letting us order a few side dishes which were all delicious. Homely atmosphere in bar area.

Great haddock and chips today, cooked perfectly and quick service too. Would have been 4.5 stars if served on a plate. Great view too.

I use the Bandstand Restaurant, at the Braeval Hotel, fairly regularly and find it excellent. However on Christmas Day they really were outstanding. We went with another couple and we all really enjoyed it. The food was first class and the service exceptional - we'll be first in line to book for next year!
