No web page for the Abbey Inn in Kinloss but it would be a shame if you couldn’t find it.
Here’s the map
Now you know my preoccupation with finding a great burger and since returning from the US I have struggled. I even tried remaking my own but British Beef just doesn’t seem to work for some reason. They use ‘chuck beef’ in the US, that’s from the neck I am told but I went to the butcher and asked for this and it still didn’t come out right.
Anyway I caught sight of a picture of a burger being served at this newly reopened pub where it seems ghosts enjoy a seat beside you when you are supping and dining.
I didn’t sense any ungodly presence apart from the sound of Neil Diamond on the jukebox (‘shivers uncontrollably’) but I did for a fleeting moment have a throwback moment where I thought I was in New York again
The Onion Rings on top – excellent fresh battered and fried.
Brioche Bun – soft and buttery. Made it an easy munch.
Burger – processed or bought in I suspect. A bit rubbery although still one of the better ones I’ve had. They should just shove a bit of mince on here.
Fillings – packed with goodies. I had pulled pork and they added much juiciness to it. Very good indeed. Wife had cajun chicken burger (fresh) and very very nice.
Chips in a wee bag – frozen I suspect. Good quality ones though and tasted great soaked in vinegar out of the wee poke.
Coleslaw – bought in I am guessing although it said homemade. It was ok. Perhaps bought in mayonnaise if genuinely fresh.
Presentation – it looks great doesn’t it.
It was very quiet when we went in and it doesn’t deserve to be on a Saturday lunchtime. We had a very pleasant drive into Findhorn afterwards and that was a nice way to walk off the feast…
… and to get ‘Sweet Caroline’ out of my head.
