We needed an evening meal while staying at Callanish and this proved to be the nearest place. Unfortunately having taken our order, it was lost so we had a long wait for our meal to arrive; we were offered free drinks by way of compensation. However, the food once it did arrive was good; I had the lamb hotpot and... More

Rural setting. Restraint is a bit worn but prices reflect this. Staff ate friendly service is good and overall good quality is excellent.

The restaurant is a bit old fashioned, wooden tables of varying sizes but the food was very nice, scallops were excellent but the black pudding crisp not moist. Steaks are very nice too as is the freshly caught fish. The menu is quite small and not a lot of choice for vegetarians I also found it a little expensive.

This place was close to where we were staying. It was friendly and although they were sold out of a few things that we wanted to order from the menu we were pleased with our food and the service we received there. Not cheap but reasonable prices for what you get.

The service was satisfactory, although we were one of only 3 small groups eating in the restaurant that evening. There was no children's menu, however our waitress kindly checked with the chef to see what choices were available "off menu" for... More

Went for lunch having visited the Callanish Stones. We were the only people in the restaurant. Ordered three fish & chips, a chickenburger and a lamb shank. My lamb shank and mash was excellent. The others said their food was fine although not as good as at the Port Beach House in Ness the day before. There is good Belhaven... More
