Really nice food, we all enjoyed it. I had a burger which I thought came with salad, fries and onion rings. Turned out the salad was in the burger, which was disappointing, but maybe I misread it. It was a heavier meal than I thought it was going to be, but tasty and fresh. All 4 of us enjoyed the food.
The room was a bit like a conservatory and a bit cool....then a bit too hot when the sun came out. Probably hard to regulate temperature in there.

Loved this place. The quality of the food speaks for itself, but the prices were so reasonable that the quality does not reflect this.
There were many things on the menu that I would have liked to try, but in the end plumped for the steak tagliatelle & Husband chose the Cairn pizza. Both of us struggling to finish our meals!
The pizza was loaded with so much topping that he left some crusts (never happens). My chargrilled strips of rump through the pasta were succulent & complimented the generous amounts of wild mushrooms.
Lovely place, enjoyed the ambience, staff & to top it off it is dog friendly.

Excellent restaurant. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Scallop starter also second to none. Great prices and wine was very very good value. Staff are lovely and I feel for them during all the nonsense of the response to Covid. If you are in the area please give this gem your support. You won’t be disappointed.

The Covid restrictions did not impact at all on the quality of food served by the team at the Cairn Grill. The 10oz sirloin steak was griddled to perfection and my partner and I both thought it to be one of the best we’ve ever tasted from a restaurant. Well done to the team for continuing to provide high quality meals in these very challenging times. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Braemar

Sadly the sit-in restaurant was closed due to Covid-19 restrictions but they were offering a take away alternative. We ordered the 14oz sirloin and both thought it was great and brilliant value. Have been back for burgers and not let down. Going to give the pizzas a try tomorrow. Such a shame we can’t sit in and enjoy with a good bottle of wine with their food but will be back in happier times.

Thank you for your review, and thank you very much for your repeated business from our take away service, hopefully we will get back to "normal" soon and you can enjoy a sit in meal and take advantage of our drinks and food in our cozy little restaurant
