Just stopped here for a bag of chips on long journey back from John O'Groats to Dornoch. Passed through on the way up on a Sunday morning at 11.30 and the Fish an Chips shop was open so thought it was worth a try on the way back at around 6pm. Bingo they were open and busy. Could only fit... More

Very good fresh fish and chips, together with other simple, traditional dishes. One star deducted for lack of choice of fish (only haddock on offer) together with over-large and off-putting portion sizes.

We had a take away fish and chips and ate down by the river on a fine summer day. Food is very good and portions are humongous. I found it to be in need of some more flavour, salt? But otherwise very good.

Another night had the fish, for a change had baked potato instead of chips and it was a nice change. As usual huge helpings... More

Call it destiny: We didn't know this restaurant and didn't plan to visit it, yet we enjoyed a wonderful treat there. We were having a round trip from Inverness to John O'Groats that day, and it was about 4:30 to 5 pm, while we were heading back to Inverness. Failed to find a satisfying place to eat in John O'Groats,... More

we ordered a small Fish Tea and when it came we both thought that they had made a mistake and given us a large one! The fish was huge and everything was lovely and fresh. Service was excellent and we will go back next time we are up North.

Stopped here for a carry-out. Wow! the size of the portions was HUGE, more chips than Mr Rural Traveller could manage, a world first! fish was very good! they offer breaded as well as battered and both were tasty with nice succulent fish. In our top 5!
