Review on Cawdor Tavern
This old tavern was originally a joiner's workshop for the nearby Estate and stands right next to historic Cawdor Castle (of Macbeth fame). The pub may look modern from the outside, but the interior is true to its past with much use of oak panelling from the castle, oak settles and roaring fires in winter.
Seafood tops the bill on the menu, with a splendid choice including – perhaps – smoked haddock and pea fishcakes, warm salad of scallops and bacon, steamed mussels with white wine and garlic, and smoked sprats on bruschetta with rocket and plum tomatoes.
Away from the sea, the kitchen garners abundant of Scottish produce for collops of venison with haggis and burnt honey jus, Morayshire pork with mustard sauce and loin of lamb with rosemary jus. There are Scottish cheeses to finish, along with desserts like brandy snap basket filled with ice cream or chocolate fudge crème brûlée. Real ales from the Cairngorm Brewery in Aviemore vie for attention with 100 malt whiskies and a varied list of wines from around the globe.
