Stayed in the Scalloway on a business trip on my own - the staff ( including the owners) are wonderful and so friendly. The food was amazing - so much so I ate there every night ( and went back for my lunch!) recommend the catch of the day... Each and every time! Rooms are very well decorated, spacious, clean...

We ate in the pub and thoroughly enjoyed the freshly-made roasted tomato soup and homemade rolls. The ambience was cozy and comfortable.

We booked a table for Sunday Dinner. The varied roast menu was great and very filling. We enjoyed the food so much that we booked a table for an evening meal The a la carte menu was excellent and very enjoyable. The Lerwick Ale was a fine pint, but it had run out by our third visit - Shame!

It just was not the best experience because some people felt it appropriate to swear at their table and as the restaurant was not full you couldn't help but hear it. Wish the staff had stopped them before my partner went... More

I, too, wish our staff had intervened before you were forced to take action yourselves. As hotel regulars will know, I have a zero tolerance approach to bad language, in both the bar and the restaurant. It's a real pity when the behaviour of some guests spoils the experience for others. Pleased to note that you liked our menu and... More

Visited this restaurant on both the 16 th and 17 th May this year with family. Due to the celebrations 70 th year for Norwegion sailors, the hotel restaurant was fully booked, so we ate both times in the bar. Excellent service and atmosphere. We were served fresh lobster for 22 pound for 4-500 gram. Delightfull manager who even greeted... More
