The best of raw ingredients coupled with attention to detail in preparation helps to deliver great food, drink and events in this contemporary bar and restaurant in the heart of historic Elgin.
Nestled down a medieval close (a Scots word for alleyway) in the historic centre of Elgin lies The Drouthy Cobbler, a bar, kitchen and venue focussed on good drinks, honest food, conversation and community.
The Drouthy has firmly established itself with a reputation for high standards and continual improvement. A changing menu of specials is created daily with the best local produce available from the market. The team of chefs start work early preparing everything on site and take real pleasure and pride in producing great food which is accessible to everyone.
From September to June we open on weekdays at 4pm and 12 noon on Saturday and Sunday. Evening meals and bar bites run well into the evening. At weekends The Drouthy Cobbler is a popular brunch spot - pair it with cocktails or coffee! A great selection of local beers and well-chosen wines complements the menu and after meal drinks are well catered for with speciality coffees, loose leaf teas, liqueurs and over 100 single malt whiskies - predominantly from our home region of Speyside.
Covered and heated outdoor seating in the 'close' provides ample opportunity for al-fresco dining. This is relaxed, informal dining with great local, seasonal produce in characterful surroundings and with attentive friendly service. Our kitchen is open until 9.30 pm and the bar is open until 12:30 am Sunday to Thursday and 1:30 am on Friday and Saturday.
Regular high quality arts events take place in our intimate venue including a monthly comedy club, lunchtime theatre and trad music concerts.
