Menu was extensive but roast beef and veg was pretty uninspiring. Beef nice but obviously warmed up with the gravy. Veg were in short supply and unexciting. My wife's salmon was also bland... More

Beautiful local seafood the local prawns are a must. A friend had venison steak from the specials menu and said it was melt in the mouth. Lovely service from front of house staff.

If it's a hearty breakfast you need before you go off to explore the Island you won't be disappointed. Full Scottish was amazing and presented well.

Food was excellent in this pub/restaurant. Good choice with specials changing from day to day. Ate here on 2 evenings, food tried included venison casserole, Thai chicken curry, fish and chips; all excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. On one evening we arrived just after the kitchen closed (8:45pm) but they were able to feed us from a reduced... More

Bit mixed here. Husband loved his fabulous scallops & black pudding, said it was best he'd ever tasted. My dish was a bit bland. Nice upgraded hotel & friendly staff. Good modern menu , def worth a visit

We had an excellent meal in here. The food is straightforward pub-restaurant stuff but exceptionally tasty for that and the staff are very friendly, probably the friendliest on Barra, where there is a tendency for the locals to be stand-offish, sometimes, with non-insular, temporary residents. Try the goat's cheese burger if you would like something out of the ordinary and... More

Was a bit shocked but all three of us had come especially so we decided to stay and pay. Two of the burgers were lovely but mine was still raw... More
