My partner and I went for a meal on the 6/5. It was a Saturday and I advise booking. You won't be disappointed. We started with calamari and baked camembert, the calamari was the best we have had. Mains are locally sourced meat. My partner had steak which was well cooked and just enough. I had venison Wellington and I... More

Really good family run restaurant compared to others around. So relived to find this place when we thought there was nothing of a good standard in the area. Spot on local food at circa £25pp for three courses. its in my contacts list now for the next time we are in the area. Saved us from mediocrity.

We are constantly amazed at the wide choice and consistently high quality in this small restaurant. Once again it delivered on starter, main course and sweet with unusual combinations of flavours and top quality ingredients. Our foreign guests were surprised to experience something this good on Newtonmore!

Excellent stop on the way home from Whitebridge to Perth. This was the first place we came across and liked the look of. What a great choice we made. The chef was absolutely lovely and was so helpful. We had our 1 year old baby girl with us and he got us a chair for her and also a child... More

We had a delicious dinner here - they have a separate veggie menu, plus some veggie items on the main menu. It was very good! The meat eaters in the restaurant looked happy too. I had crispy asparagus & mushrooms with fresh pesto, followed by strudel of spinach, roast beets, brie and courgette, and then pavlova. Wine was available by... More

Excellent stop on the West Highland Way! I ate like a king : the meat was very tasty and cooked close to perfection. I particularly enjoyed the haggis and the fresh vegetables served with my steak. The place and its decoration is modern and efficient. It makes you feel good and ready to enjoy the main experience : their food... More

We had a beautiful meal in this beautiful restaurant in this quite little village of Newtonmore. The waitress was very attentive and our food was beautifully cooked and presented. We will certainly go back next time we visit.

Had dinner here. The place is very quiet. Good menu, even though a little abuse of sauces (but that is part of the regional tradition). Very friendly service. If you are around, it deserves a try.

A small restaurant in the middle of Newtonmore, where we have just had a delicious meal, made with fresh ingredients and fantastic flavours. Really something special in this small village, in a larger town this restaurant would be available only by booking well in advance. The chef has great skill in combining flavours - must try the pate with home-made... More

Fresh ingredients cooked to a high standard resulting in an excellent combination. Found it difficult to choose from the short but varied menu. Very pleasant staff. We're just in Newtonmore for one night otherwise we'd be back to the Letterbox tomorrow. Definitely recommended.
