We called in here for lunch and were not disappointed. The menu is very extensive and covers breakfasts and a range of snacks and more substantial lunch dishes. We were very impressed that there were four vegetarian main dishes to choose from alongside jacket potatoes and sandwiches. The home-made chunky vegetable soup was delicious and so was the jacket potato... More

My wife and I had a very good breakfast here. The food was well-prepared, and the service was very good.

Popped in for a cuppa and snax after a longish drive. Served really quickly, food and drinks served quickly with no fuss. Spotlessly clean. Food really tasty and the smells from the food prep area were truly amazing! We liked it here but needed to press on. There was a herd of deer snoozing on the grass outside which was... More

food was excellent, prices reasonable and service good. What more can you ask for. Seafood chowder was very tasty but could perhaps had a little more fish

Had some hand dived scallops which were well priced and really delicious. Friendly staff and a view out to some deer on the football pitch!

We only stopped for a coffee and as it was too soon after breakfast couldn't find the room for cake but they looked exceptionally nice. We were going to go back for a meal but unfortunately it was closed - however, the menu looked very nice at reasonable prices so I would definitely go back if in the area.

This pace is a 'little gem' tucked away beside the Lochinver Highland Games field. Probably some of the best seafood courses I have ever had. An 'AbFab' battered Haddock and chips on my first visit, then an even better 'proper large' portion of Monkfish Scampi, two nights later. Prices were not over the top for what we had. Great sized...
