Lovely lunch after a great beach walk

Fantastic food and great service. A really lovely menu with some unusual dishes. So lovely to see local Black Isle produce being used. Used my Premier card which saved us the cost of a main, meal.

I have been going to Rosemarkie for 7 years now and this restaurant just keeps getting better and better. The food on my last trip was exceptional and I cannot recommend it enough. The specials are updated frequently and plenty of choice for everyone. On my last trip I ordered the smoked mackerel and imagine my surprise when I learned... More

I take my food extremely seriously and I have had the privilege of eating in some of the finest restaurants both here in the UK and around the world but the most stunning meal I have ever eaten was at the Crofter's Bistro in Rosemarkie last summer. Mercifully not a Michelin star to be seen but, instead, a passion for,... More

What a find!! This little place truly is a hidden gem, the staff are friendly, the views are stunning and the food is amazing! We recently spent a weeks holiday on the Black Isle and stumbling across The Crofters one lunchtime, and after a lovely lunch decided to book a table for the evening meal. The food is all fresh...

Beautiful views across the firth and a good menu with freshly cooked food.A little on the pricey side and the linguini seafood was a bit heavy on the chilli but will definitely go back.

Have visited many times over the last seven years since we began holidaying in rosemarkie. Food, service and value outstanding. Staff very helpful and attentive - especially the chef- who managed to produce fantastic ,imaginative and healthy home made food in each visit - in particular for my 18 month old grandson.

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
