We stayed at Moorfield house and had a fantastic time. There was a warm welcome and we were very well looked after by Grant, Maria and team. Breakfasts were lovely in the restaurant overlooking the garden watching red squirrels and lots of birds. The bar is lovely and cosy, with a log fire burning during winter, and we particularly enjoyed... More

Hi We are pleased you enjoyed all aspects of your stay with us from the real ales to Grants cooking. The family room will hopefully be having an external makeover in 2017 once planning permission is in place. We hope to see you again if you are in Braemar. Kind Regards Maria & Grant More

What can I say some of the best food I have ever had. Love Grant's (very friendly chef and owner) take on Haggis, Venison was superb and as for the desert of salted caramel cookie crumble I had to have two. Had breakfast also and that was superb. Will definitely eat here again.

I stayed two nights at the hotel and ate in the restaurant both nights, the food was exceptional both times. The first was a pan fried haddock in breadcrumbs that was done to perfection, the second was a three course meal starting with haggis, neeps (swede) and tatties, Venison on a bed of wild mushrooms for the main and a...

I booked in to eat at the restaurant during my recent stay, and I could not have been happier with the food. The chef Grant uses locally sourced food (the venison steak was out of this world), and I needn't have worried about my first taste of Haggis - I'm glad I opted to give it a go. We ate... More

Whilst staying at The Moorfield House we ate in the restaurant twice for our evening meals. The food was spot on, I had a steak one night cooked exactly how I like it, the following night we had a 3 course meal which just got better and better as the meal went on, I even surprised my wife by eating...

I stayed at Moorfield House Hotel for a weekend and had a brilliant time. Some of the best food I've ever eaten (especially the Sea Salt Caramel Cookie Crumble!), a cosy bar with wood-burning stove, Sky Sports, a very clean and comfortable room... but perhaps most importantly, superb service from a very welcoming team. The location, overlooking the Highland Games... More

Visited Moorfield last week while on holiday for October School week at Mount View Cottage just up the road a bit. Having been going to Braemar over the last 20 years this is the best I have seen this Hotel looking. New owners are very friendly.

We were 'fitted in' to the restaurant, with a booking, as the hotel was otherwise taken up by a wedding party. We were made to feel welcome. General service was most obliging in the bar and through to the restaurant. The restaurant has reflective glass windows and creates a rather unusual but quite pleasant ambience. Food is not 'Haute Cuisine'... More
