The Stuart Arms, Dufftown, Scotland

The Stuart Arms

The Stuart Arms in Dufftown, Scotland, is a family run bar and restaurant. Ian, our host at Castleview Bed and Breakfast, recommended that we have our evening meal there. They are open all day every day, except Tuesdays. The owner, Peter, personally chooses the 200 single malts available, many of them rare or vintage. However, after much whisky tasting, sampling and drinking during our time in Scotland, something different was in order.

The restaurant

Dave and I bypassed the pub and went straight to the restaurant when we arrived. We started our evening with an IPA on tap. Dave chose the Stillman’s, a local Spey Valley Ale. I had the Glenfiddich as we had been at the distillery earlier during the day. We shared a starter of haggis bon bons (£5.25). The haggis comes from a local butcher. These were breaded and fried and are served with a really tasty sweet mango chutney. For the mains we both chose the fish and chips (£11.95). This fresh Scottish haddock was beer battered with a local ale and was super crispy. It was served with fresh peas, always a winner for me. Both of our dishes were served with a freshly made side salad.

Service and Contact

There is a dedicated bar in the restaurant and one of the waitresses helped us with our choice. We had wonderful and friendly service from our waitress. The food was prepared fresh and worth the wait. They were not full when we went but I would recommend making a booking. Contact them on +44 1340 820302

  1. Yum haggis bon bons! I have tried haggis once before and I really liked it. It can be so polarizing though.
