We went here for lunch as the food had good reviews and we arrived at 13.50 (it closed at 15.00). There was one table of 2 leaving and a table of 2 adults and 2 children occupied but at the end of their drinks. We asked the gentleman clearing the table if we could have lunch, he hesitated and looked... More

My wife and I have been here a couple of times now, once in the summer when the place was packed both inside and out, and once this winter in December on a Friday when it was also very busy, fortunately we had booked for both occasions. Our most recent trip we sampled their fresh stone baked pizza night, the... More

Love this restaurant as it always has a brilliant welcome and the food is yum every time we visit. Fab fresh ingredients, great cooking, staff all ever so helpful and a view to die for (weather depending). You may need to book as it is so popular.

Arrived on a blustery cold Saturday in December. Host was very welcoming and answered our questions about the local area and was very helpful. We had a window table with lovely sea views. We both enjoyed the turkey burger which was lovely freshly made and very tasty.

Six of us attended on Saturday (23rd).the restaurant was busy and the atmosphere was great. I had the fishcakes, I would recommend them. Full of smoked haddock and the sauce was to die for. My husband had the steak. He said it was the best he has had in a long time. Possibly ever! The rest of the party had... More

The restaurant was not busy or I'd say the few staff on duty may have struggled to get food out quickly enough but what they did was bring piping hot freshly cooked food to us - friendly, helpful relaxed service - we enjoyed tasty seafood, fish and steaks, excellent ingredients throughout. Very good value lunch. Will definitely go back. The... More

We have been on the Black Isle many times but not heard of Crofters before. Oh how we wish we had. We went on a Sunday night in October and were recommend to book which was surprising.
