Description: The Druie takes its name from the burn(river) that rushes behind the restaurant and always seems in a hurry to carry clear, sparkling mountain water from the Cairngorms to the River Spey. We are open daily 9.30am - 5.00pm for locally roasted coffee, locally sourced tasty lunches,leaf teas and delicious homemade cakes, with a focus on dishes prepared from lovingly home produced beef from our pedigree herd of Highland cattle,our velvety venison from the ancient forest of Rothiemurchus and seasonal produce from specialist producers, served in a relaxed, friendly environment. Whilst enjoying your coffee or lunch at the Druie, you can enjoy the exhibition of local artwork which changes each month, especially selected by Ellie, who manages the Gallery at Loch an Eilein and is also a member of Creative Cairngorms.

Previously listed as Ord Ban (no longer trading under that name).

Warm and welcoming atmosphere in historic old school hose from 1875.

Great coffee and cakes!

We ate here two days, cold and hungry after wildlife photography sessions. Warmed by the coal fire and with a great plate of soup and a tasty sandwich inside use we were ready for action again. I can recommend the Cullen Skink and the beef baguette.

Very good food. Always freshly prepared. We always go there when in Aviemore. Reckon it's the best coffee and bakes in the area.

The Druie is found within the Rothiemurchus Centre. A lovely restaurant to enjoy a sandwich, sub, soup (home made), or a delicious cake. Also other dishes. We wanted to visit Aviemore to hopefully see the reindeers but the day before we were advised that we needed all-weather gear as the weather was not good. This day wasn't too bad so off we went. We stopped at The Druie for a spot of lunch. What a good decision. We all enjoyed our meals and after enjoyed the Rothiemurchus Centre. This is a brilliant stop before going to the summit, especially as it was raining at the time we stopped. As we went up the snow got heavier and heavier and at the top it didn't stop snowing. Didn't get to see reindeers but very glad we went to The Druie. Well worth a stop. Enjoy!
