To find such a welcoming, characterful place to eat in such a remote area was amazing. You could visit a whole city and not find as good. Staff welcoming, home made food good - we had late lunch / afternoon tea ... and a long read of the newspaper! And if it hadn't rained, we would have browsed the superb... More

Lovely cafe set in a walled garden in Applecross. Wonderfully quiet and tranquil. Great Coffee, lovely cakes, scones and wholesome lunches. Something for everyone. Helpful, friendly staff. Nice log burning stove which was particularly welcome on a very cold day outside. Thoroughly recommend.

Had afternoon tea here which was served pleasantly enough. Bananoffee tarts were average. Expensive for what we had but that may be down to location. Not bad but not brilliant.

Visited for breakfast and dinner over a few days with my husband. Fabulous sea food beautifully cooked. Breakfast scrambled eggs and smoked salmon was excellent too. The gardens are a lovely setting in Autumn. We will be back......

My wife and I had a very enjoyable lunch sitting outside in the Autumn sun in Applecross. The menu provided a good choice of seafood, meat and vegetarian food. I had duck and my wife chose seafood tagliatelle. Both dishes were well presented and were very tasty. Perfect place to eat on a warm autumn day!

We came here for some cake and a drink while in Applecross. We had read the amazing reviews others had left on tripadvisor but came away feeling a little bit disappointed. We didn't have a full meal there as had eaten at the applecross inn for lunch but had some cake. The cake selections were good but after ordering they... More

A fairly brusque welcome at the Applecross Inn saw us turn tail and make tracks to the Walled Garden. And what a good move that turned out to be. Fantastic food in a beautiful setting, with generous portions and fresh ingredients. We'll be back!

Called in for lunch on our last day on holiday and went back for dinner, wish we had found it earlier as would have definitely visited more. Soup and sandwiches at lunch exceptional but the restaurant transformed for the evening with lighting, looks very romantic. Food did not disappoint in the evening ...excellent! Four of us visited both times and... More

My husband and I chanced upon this restaurant last week when we were visiting Applecross. The pub in the village was full of bikers and there was nowhere to park. We had spotted the sign for the Walled Garden on the way in so decided to go back and have lunch there. What a magical experience. From the moment we... More
