We had about an hour and a half wait until the tour started when we arrived, and this was a good lunch before the tour. Not a huge menu, but a nice selection. And I was glad hubby (driver) had a full stomach before the tour & tasting. Would also be good after the tour before driving. Definitely recommend!

We heard this cafe had surprisingly good food and thought that was true. Came for pre-tour lunch. Food and service were great.

Most informative tour I have done.Kirstie our tour guide was most pleasant with great sense of humor. The only thing that could be better would be to see a few bottles being bottled

The menu may be limited to soup of the day and Cullen Skink choice of 4 sandwiches, the speyside platter, or quiche and a good selection of delightful cakes but there was more than enough for me. The quality and flavour of the platter of smoked salmon, smoked venison, local cheese and chutney with a smaller cup of Cullen skink... More

This is on the premises of the Glenfiddich Distillery and is large enough to take a good crowd. From just a drink ( hot and cold ) a snack or a main meal you will be welcomed. When we visited there was plenty of staff on and you were looked after as soon as you entered. The staff were relaxed... More

Arrived with family on a cold winters day to find a very limited menu with over priced items. After we had ordered we asked staff to heat a bowl of baby food we had for our 1 year old. They point blank refused. Under grounds of health and safety they stated. First Ive ever heard the like of it and... More

Glenfiddich is probably the distillery best set up for tourists. Besides access to multiple types of tours, the Malt Barn offers vice nice lunch selections in a lovey room decorated with photos from the distillery. Lunch offerings include lighter options along with pastas, soups and sandwiches. Excellent selection of beers and of course whiskeys.

Nice venue, but some of the lunch main course menu items were more starter size than main course portions, e.g. gnocchi was tiny (& I'm not a big eater), whereas haggis large! Gnocchi tomato sauce quite sweet? Feedback from those who ordered the haggis was that it seemed to be more about quantity rather than taste.

We ate here twice during our stay. The food is good, especially the cullen skink. The service could have been a little more attentive, but the barn was busy on both days. A great place for a light snack in a cosy restaurant.

We stopped in here for lunch. The menu was tiny and when we ordered they were sold out of the item we wanted. We were disappointed for such a commercial venue to have such limited options in the lunch department. The venue was clean and very comfortable with extremely friendly staff. It is such a shame that their menu lets... More
