Food is amazing! Me and my partner both had a steak burger, really really delicious! I wish I'd taken a photo of it!! The whole place itself isn't very special but after a long walk it's a great place to have a drink and a bit of lunch. Really great atmosphere - it probably helped that the Six Nations was... More

Poor show in here customer service skills from the bar man. His attitude was rude and not welcoming last night. We went in on the Friday which was fine a few beers and a game of pool and darts returned Saturday only for the bar man to display a lack of respect for his customers. A chalk deposit is required...

Would never return here as the service received from the barman stunk. A friends went in for some drinks but the attitude from the barman was couldn't be bothered and just rude. Went to another pub and spent loads and had a great night.

As a local Mackenzie's is one of those pubs that we often forget to visit...and it would appear we are not alone. However the beer and whiskey selection in Mackenzie's is among the best offerings in Aviemore. An array of bottled and draft beer options are available; more so than in some of the pubs more centrally located on the... More

We came in after looking at a few menus elsewhere as it was a good bit cheaper. We wanted decent pub grub and the food was excellent. Large portions, very reasonably priced. Friendly staff and good service. Would definitely come back.

While staying over in Aviemore for Christmas and New Year we had not booked anything in particular for a Hogmanay meal. We were having a drink here and noticed the 4 x course menu for £27.50 and thought "why not" - not expecting particularly too much for the price but at least securing something. To our surprise, what we received... More

A really odd kind of place. Not sure what they are trying to achieve here. Food was ok, service was poor. The bar man would look more at home in a vampires castle.

We went here for my stagger meal on the Saturday night. Booked for 22 guys a few weeks beforehand. Gathered all the orders and sent them by email, so easy to work with. Meal packages were great, good value. When we arrived everything was perfect. Staff a good laugh and a wide range of craft beer. Food was good, but... More
