Amazing setting

Have thoroughly enjoyed the good quality food and stunning views from the Badachro Inn. Sitting out in the evening sun on the decked area looking out over the bay with a glass of wine in your hand is hard to beat !

Great atmosphere, great views, good homecooked food, and the owners and son Mark are so welcoming and warm even remember us from year after year.

We had a lovely dinner on a cold sunny evening in May. The view from the dining room and terrace is beautiful, while the main bar area was very cosy with a fire crackling away. We had the fish and chips (huge and tasty) and the halibut (significantly smaller portion but delicious). Would definitely recommend eating and/or drinking here. I... More

Very friendly service, real ale and delicious home-cooked food in a delightful setting. It was pouring with rain, we were cold, hungry and thirsty. On entering the bar we were greeted warmly by the owner, and a lovely fire in the grate. He was chatty, amusing and the food, cooked by his wife was absolutely delicious. We sat in the... More

We are regular visitors to the area and never disappointed by our food, the lovely views from the decks or the welcome. You should try it ( book ahead in summer season - it's not huge and it IS very popular!)

Great food, great people, great location. Very welcoming to our two spaniels and the food was delicious. Took a walk from Redpoint afterwards to walk off our delicious lunch

In advance of our visit we had perused the sample menu on the Badachro Inn website, and were very much looking forward to sampling the local seafood with locally brewed real ales. Our first disappointment came when we were faced with a much reduced menu and the predictable range of keg beers. The landlord explained that the full range of... More

My husband, toddler and myself dropped in one lunch time out of the holiday 'season' and were blown away with this gem of place. We have already set motion plans to return to wonderful Gailoch and this is 100% on the list of dinner hotspots to introduce our friends to who will be joining us. The owner (we only met... More

We come up to this area every year and have never been in for food before, only drinks so after failing to get phone reception to make a booking we drove down on a freezing cold, rainy Thursday night. To our amazement the place was almost fully booked but we managed to get a small table near the bar. The... More

We spent a week in Gairloch, and three of our six lunches in the area were at this lovely place. The seafood broth (a sort of West Highland version of Bouilllabaise) was astonishingly good, and the view, whether in pouring rain (late October in the west highlands - I'd have been disappointed if it hadn't rained ferociously!) or in lovely...
