The contemporary bar is nestled down a medieval close in the heart of Elgin, with a covered and heated outdoor seating area for alfresco dining.
I popped into the bar with a couple of friends for a spot of late lunch and a few afternoon drinks – and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
We opted to take advantage of the bar bites deal, choosing a few dishes to share around the table. Between us we managed to polish off haggis bites, crispy chicken wings, sausage rolls, Scottish scampi and hand-cut chips. We also had a few delicious beers and gin and tonics!
The food that we had was absolutely delicious – well above the standard you would expect for such a low price. My favourite was the delicious haggis bites – a must try, especially if you are visiting Scotland for the first time.
If you don’t fancy sharing a few bar bites, the bar also serves meals at an excellent price of £23.95 for three courses or £19.95 for two courses. The tasty food is also locally sourced, as the Drouthy try to source the best Scottish ingredients from independent butchers, farmers and veg growers.
My favourite part of our experience was the great bar, which boasts over 150 whiskies, natural wines, craft gins and local beers. We certainly took the opportunity to sample as many different beers and gins as we could! It is the perfect place to sample both Scottish drinks and foods.
If that isn’t enough for you, the Drouthy Cobbler also has live music during some evenings and some afternoons, making it great for a lively evening out. The venue also has regular arts events, including a monthly comedy club, lunchtime theatre and trad music concerts.
The excellent food, drink and events are also all offered with a smile from the lovely staff, who are full of knowledge about the different drinks that are on offer.
It really is a great place to relax and enjoy some great food and drink in a friendly atmosphere. It is an excellent place to stop by if you are exploring nearby sites in Elgin; such as Elgin Cathedral.
It is also a 10 minute drive from your stay at Carden Cottages.
