About The Old Bridge Inn

The Old Bridge Inn, on the banks of the Spey, and on the road to the ski slopes, offers a roaring log fire and great atmosphere, along with excellent food and a fine selection of cask ales, premium lagers and malt whiskies. It has always been a favourite haunt for those who enjoy the outdoors, while friendly staff and locals always make you welcome (and that includes your dog)!

I saw this place was top of the list of eateries I. Aviemore, but I was also recommended it by my Airbnb host for a evening meal I was planning for a special occasion. With all the positive reviews I decided to book. I was not disappointed, I called to confirm my reservation and check I could take a cake along with us. They were very accommodating on the phone. Our table was ready for us when we arrived by a window, lovely party of the restaurant. Also the staff who served us were so lovely, warm and friendly. One lady in particular took care of us and did so very well, sorry I didn’t catch her name. She explained menu items to us and helped us decide what to order. We booked a table for 9, everywhere we go we tend to have a longer wait for food due to the size of the group, not at the Old Bridge In , food was served promptly and everyone enjoyed it. The Wild Mushrooms starters was lovely, I also had the Kimchi fried rice with tofu, the rice itself was a little on the bland side for me but the tofu was amazing, melt in the mouth crispy coated with a lovely seasoning! I won’t be forgetting it in a long time! All in all, I highly recommend a visit to the Old Bridge Inn if you’re in Or around Aviemore it’s a lovely place with great food and service. Also good for celebrating a special occasion. Thank you we had a wonderful time.

Food was not great, especially at the price point - very dry burgers and some of the Asian inspired food did not seem to hit the mark. Servers were friendly but a bit slow. Bar was very warm - not sure why as it was relatively cool outside, but it was not very pleasant. We were given a 20% reduction in the bill and one burger was taken off as the four burgers our group ordered were very dry. That was a a nice thing to have done in the circumstances, but I would still find it hard to recommend dining here given our experience overall. It’s a shame as we had a lovely meal here a few years ago. Submitting as a private review as perhaps not representative of others’ experience but wanted to feed this back.

We enjoyed our breakfast here. You were really understanding when we were 30 minutes late for our booking. The service was good and well organised for Covid policies. We ordered three of the pancakes and the smoked salmon and eggs. From tqhe choices I would say there should be a bit more variety such as a traditional breakfast, sandwich option (bacon, sausage egg etc) and a continental/ granola lighter option. The breakfast did take a little longer than we expected to arrive but the quality was superb. I would say that the pancakes needed more syrup (I know it can be expensive) but the pancakes are quite thick and by the time you get to the bottom one it was a bit too dry. Maybe add a section on the menu for extras that people can add (including more syrup). I would say the price was a little on the high side however we benefited from the dine out to help out discount scheme so not a problem there. But if we were to return for another day not using the scheme it would be a little too expensive for what we were expecting. All in all it was a lovely treat to take my visiting family out for breakfast and the quality of the food was fantastic along with the service

we love the old bridge inn and come every year when we visit. However, this year the menu was a little disappointing. It was missing a few classics like traditional fish and chips. It was quite eclectic (lots of thai or vietnamese influence?....but my parents who ate with us, really weren't overly impressed with tofu or cold noodles.) We will be back next year for the great service, atmosphere and hopefully a slightly changed menu. however, we were so happy you were open and keen to support you during troubled times x

We were very happy to return. We have visited the Old Bridge many times, over 30 years, and with our Children in their younger years. Always been welcoming. We were slightly delayed by the confusion of road works, but the staff made us comfortable and feel relaxed again.
