    Very very good indeed. Not been able to get a table the last 3 times I’ve tried (at short notice) Now I understand why. Terrific local ingredients cooked perfectly. Not a huge menu but everything we had was perfect and perfectly delicious. Friendly efficient staff, great cocktails, if a tad slow. These guys know what they are doing.

    We went to the Drouthy for our anniversary meal last night after following the refuel on social media and it being highly recommended by friends who stay local. The interiors, ambient lighting and music were absolutely spot on and it felt like a very familiar and well established place from the second you walk through the door. The service was fantastic, we were extremely well looked after and any questions or requests we had were promptly taken care of by Clodagh and the team. The food was some of the best we’ve had in the area, with a well thought out wine list to match. Both the food and wine menu could be called “small” but the choices are absolutely spot on, and it shows confidence in the local and seasonal produce to offer the very best to their customers, rather than having a huge array of dishes for the sake of it. Looking forward to returning already, hopefully we can make use of the lovely outside seating area as well! All in all we were extremely impressed, until next time!

    Benefit of the doubt to a relatively new restaurant but some simple issues impacted on our enjoyment. The table size we were given is too small for a dinner and struggled to accommodate glasses and plates and would be more suited to a cafe. Wine menu was interesting but the bottle we chose didn’t detail the grape type (Verdicchio) on the menu. Wine was excellent though. The door outside was left open for the entire duration of our main course and left us and our food feeling rather cold. We had an excellent cheese board for dessert that just needed a glass of port or nice dessert wine to accompany it but neither of these were stocked. Close to being very good but attention to detail was lacking.

    We were there for a late lunch/early dinner, so ordered off the lunch menu. The food was excellent and well presented. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the bar and the menu. Will definitely be back, and looks like we are now members of the Monday Club!😊

    Nice to see the Drouthy is back. Really enjoyed the experience and the food was good, although my risotto was a bit on the tepid side which was a shame. All the staff were super friendly and very attentive. Will return again at some stage

    The food was tasty enough, the squid starter was a little over-done but not so much that it wasn’t edible. The risotto was tasty and cooked really well, every element was cooked perfectly. The burger and fries was pricey for what it was. Staff were attentive. If you’re sitting in the channel towards the middle of the place then there’s not a lot of room with people walking though the middle to get to their tables. No dark beer on tap or in bottles like porters etc only Guinness on tap which was a shame. Overall good experience and would go back.

    After a hastily planned dinner, I was very lucky to get a last minute table at the Drouthy Cobbler. The staff were lovely and very accommodating, especially when we ordered some off menu cocktails. The food was delicious, the pork and risotto were both excellent, and the sticky toffee pudding was excellent. Really looking forward to coming back again for a more relaxed evening.

    A hidden gem in Elgin. Struggled initially getting a table but then we spoke to the owner, Kevin, who was extremely helpful and engaging. The food was great with a good choice on the menu. We finished off with some stunning cocktails at the bar made by very professional bar staff.

    Went for an early tea as a group of 4. We had 4 starters that we shared between us; squid, monkfish, brie and haggis bon bons that were all amazing. Mains were lemon and tarragon chicken, fish and chips, pork loin and black pudding bon bons and chips which all went down a treat. Super fresh and great service. Room had a lovely atmosphere, first time returning since it reopened and already planning on another trip back.
