The Old Village Hall put to good use

Good tea; good scones. When I was a boy this was our local village hall so it was great to tellto my children about the Christmas parties, youth clubs and whist drives that were there previously. The tea never tasted so good!

We were touring the area and stumbled across this cafe whilst hunting for something hot to drink and a sweet treat before dinner. The selection of teas was vast and one of the best cups I've had . The chocolate cake and warm toffee cake were simply wonderful. The menu looked fabulous and had we not made other plans we... More

Very friendly staff, delicious home cooked food - cakes are amazing - try the chocolate cheesecake, it's yummy! I had the cooked breakfast and it was all freshly cooked with delicious local sausages and bacon - can't fault the food. Well worth a detour!!

My group and I went to the "cafe" not really sure what to expect as we were hungry boys. What we found was the one of the most understated restaurants I have been to. The food would put most "upmarket wannabee michelin starred" places to shame. The rib-eye steak was cooked to absolute perfection and between the four of us... More

Came upon this cafe yesterday which was a day of sunshine and showers, so it was a welcome find! We were delighted with the blackboard menu as it was so different from most other cafes. Our choices were superb - my husband had parma ham salad with roasted asparagus and pesto. I had an amazing warm toffee and apple sponge... More

My wife and I holiday in Kinlochewe every year and have eaten in the Whistle Stop since it opened. The food is delicious, very well presented and served by courteous, friendly staff. The interior is cosy and welcoming and Lis is a lovely character as well as a first class cook!

Delicious home cooked food and value for money. Welcoming staff. BYO as not licensed. Cosy with a big log burner. Looks a basic barn but that is part of the attraction. Huge portions. Well worth a visit.

We stopped by here by chance after travelling for several hours via Loch Cluanie from Fort William. The Loch Ewe smoked salmon was one to die for with lashings of salmon and salad a plenty. The vegetation sandwich was well enjoyed by my wife. Great amusement at the plaques in the gents - favourite in photo!
