The food at the Bothy is amazing and the staff are lovely. The only thing letting this place down is it’s coffee - you guys need to train your staff to make proper coffees using a real coffee machine and stop with the press button machine coffee!

we had a lovely meal. it was a treat for our 5th wedding anniversary and a one off night without our little boy (a 2yr old). we loved all the food we ate; chilli squid and we both had monkfish scampi which was amazing, unfortunately no room for pudding! we have already recommended to our friends and can't wait for Dory the bus to open at Hopeman for when we take the caravan as we went there in the summer.

Many thanks to all at The Bothy for our lunch on Tues. My folks were commenting on what a lovely time they had - from a nice cheery welcome and super friendly service, to the fabulous food that never fails to impress. Many thanks from us!

Although they didn’t have a number of items (due to the only time being available of 2015) on the menu, what we did have was lovely!!

Fantastic food with a warm and welcoming vibe to the place. I think the prices are slightly inflated however.

Meal was bland, service was unsatisfactory, and we got thrown out at the end because they were closing at 1530, lights went off at 1510. If we had been told upon booking that they were closing early we would have reconsidered.

Fantastic food and service as always, despite being very busy and running from a limited menu due to being shortly after the new year. Always recommend and will continue to do so.

Staff very lovely however not enough of them, half an hour before we got a menu (which we had to ask for), over an hour before any food arrived, 3 staff for the whole place on New Year’s Eve....

The Bothy is without doubt one of the best places to eat in Moray. Service has always been excellent and it is good to see the place doing so well. Your Christmas menu was phenomenal and some of the best food I've ever had. I wish you all the best for the future and look forward to many future visits.

I used to love the Bothy but your oryxes have gone up and your quality has gone down! Terrible coffee and £3 for 6 olives in a tiny bucket is pretty mean. The Cullen skink was more like leek and potato soup with hardly any fish in it. I took my friend for lunch telling her lovely it was and we were both so disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to your restaurant. The food was delicious, the service attentive without being fussy, lovely staff and I had the best sat in the house...next to the wood burner! We are visiting the area but would certainly eat with you again if we return.
