The restaurant was clean & tidy and the staff were attentive. We placed our order and the food arrived pretty soon after. The starters and the... More

Called in without making reservation, didn't expect it to be busy at this time of the year, no problem they found a table for us. The food is good and price is fair.

All the staff very friendly and a good choice of breakfast in the mornings. The evening choices of food are good too with lots of local produce on offer. Located just on the Loch, there... More

We went here with friends and their Kids for dinner and were very impressed. The choice on the menu was good and very well explained as to where the food had been sourced from, and the service was good and very responsive and friendly.
