Good food well cooked

This is a no nonsense type of restaurant. Good food very well cooked, with an good menu to choose from. The staff are very nice and although we had not booked we were accommodated with no fuss. (as this place gets very busy it is worth booking)

Having come across Whistle Stop by accident a few months ago we made the two and a half hour journey especially for our Anniversary and were not disappointed. A warm welcome, friendly service and excellent and freshly cooked food made for a lovely celebration meal. My husband particularly liked the fish with fresh breadcrumbs and was impressed with homemade tartare... More

Our 2nd year holidaying in Wester Ross, and we couldn't wait to visit the Whistlestop after our lovely meals there last year. It was so nice to be remembered and receive such a friendly welcome. Although staying in Gairloch, it was well worth the drive as this place beats anywhere else we ate hands down, both on the quality of... More

We stopped for a snack lunch. The coffee and tea (leaf earl grey) were excellent as was the homemade cream of tomato soup. The service was friendly without being intrusive. All in all it was as good as one could wish for for a lunch stop. The ambience, however, is superb. If I lived there I would be there every... More

What a pity we just called in for cake. The brownies were just great, and my companion loved his pot of tea. Sadly, the decaff coffee was instant, so I declined. Why does somewhere like this that has such a fab-looking menu for mealtimes drop short on the coffee front like this? So disappointing. :-( Loved the place though -... More

Stumbled upon this place while on hoilday, looks like a old.Nissan hut from the outside. Inside it is very spacious with large table for varying numbers of people. I wide variety of food choices be it snack, meal or home baking made from locally sourced ingredients. Staff very friendly and helpful.

As good a mocha as I can remember, which are always a bit of a gamble. The cake was light and delicious. The menu looked superb but alas we weren't there at a meal time. Prices looked reasonable, probably 20ish a head for a meal.

We stopped off here for a cup of tea as part of our road trip. One look at the menu and we were salivating for food. Scallops with a sharp and sweet salsa were divine and my girl friend had a sublime piece of smoked haddock with a chive crust. The sweets looked too tempting so we shared a chocolate... More
