Service was top notch. Having spent a week in the Conon Bridge area we all agreed this was the best meal of the week. There are... More

This really is a great find, a little out of the way, but we'll worth the short trip to the Black Isle from Inverness. Real honest pub food with a genuine home cooked feel. The staff excellent, friendly and helpful. The food was definitely very good value for money.

The answer here is to relax. They do eventually take your order and serve you. When they do it is worth the wait. We all found the food excellent and the portions large. Atmosphere very pleasant as were serving staff.

Decor very basic but clean.Food was good.We shared the fish platter starter and there was enough for a main course.It was delicious.I had pork in apple and calvados sauce which was tasty but the vegetables,except the potatoes, were watery and tasteless. Service was efficient and friendly.We will go back.
