Popped into this establishment during a trip on the west side of Lewis, was hoping for beautiful fresh seafood and game taken from the many specialist food stuffs exported from the Islands, alas it was the standard pub grub - well overpriced! Which wouldn't be so bad if it was quality food but it had a very factory made feel... More

My dad and I had a superb meal here on the final night of our Outer Hebrides tour. We did have to book in advance but this was easy. My dad enjoyed the deep fried brie followed by a beautifully presented prawn marie rose salad, which he said was delicious and really different. I enjoyed the chicken live paté, which... More

My husband and I had been exploring the island and having been for a fairly long walk, were in need of a good meal to get us ready for the afternoon. Upon entering we were blocked at the door by an extremely harassed looking waitress. The reason she gave for not wanting to let us in? 'A coach trip has... More

We chose Borve Hotel as it was recommended as a great place for food following a day touring the west coast of Lewis and we were not disappointed. The staff are very attentive, but not overly pushy, very pleasant and welcoming. The menu choices were excellent, something for everyone, even our vegetarian. The service was very quick and the food... More

Went with friends for dinner. The service was so friendly and the menu varied. My meal was very nice. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and most had no room left for pudding as the portions are more than decent! The wine was very good and inexpensive too. Everything looked freshly cooked and the food good quality at a reasonable place. Definitely... More

We visited last month for an eve meal. We had scallops to start and they were beautifully presented and very tasty! Main course was pork belly which we love but it was very disappointing! The meat was dry and a little tough! The fat was soft and hairy which was rather unsightly and unappetising to look at! Sweet was amazing... More
