We visited the old pines while on holiday in the area. The starters and the main courses were fantastic but we were a little disappointed with the deserts but that was rectified by the manager after mentioning it to the staff. Reasonably priced and a nice place to eat but maybe skip the desert ?

Fantastic hotel/restaurant in a fantastic setting. Best hotel we have stayed in to date. Ken the owner is very attentive and nothing seems to be too much trouble!! His wife, Imogen is a superb cook and the food is beautifully presented. The view from the restaurant is of Ben Nevis and there is a calm, peaceful welcoming atmosphere about the... More

Our party of four was welcomed into a comfortable seating area upon arrival and we ordered our cocktails and wine. They came accompanied by a yummy snack and we felt that we were waited on with extreme care. The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive. Our B&B recommended this restaurant and we agree that it was a... More

We came here on a Sunday night after the terrible hotel we were staying in couldn't accommodate us for dinner. I had the mackerel to start and devoured it! My partner had the soup which was gone within minutes. The portion sizes were spot on. For mains we had the pork and the chicken which were equally excellent. What made... More

Came across this lodge/restaurant by chance, and so very glad we did. The food was fantastic, and menu had something for everyone! We had the pork loin and veal and both were excellent! The hand made truffles that came with the coffee to finish were the icing on the cake!! Would certainly recommend this place if in the area!

So glad we booked this in advance of our trip. This is a delightful restaurant. Not only was the food terrific, but the surroundings are magnificent. The owner even ran us home to our overnight accommodation. Well worth fitting in a tour of Scotland round this gem of a restaurant.
