Definitely worth a visit

Two of us ate here on a Saturday evening and found the setting relaxed and the staff friendly. My partner had the haggis starter which he really enjoyed. We thoroughly finished our steak and ale pie and toad in the hole mains, both of which were tasty and in decent portions. We then shared a... read more

Had a super meal here. Service very friendly and good. Food was delicious. There were three of us and each ate 2 Fish courses after which no one had room for a Pud!! Thanks for a lovely evening. Well recommended.

We visited Borve House for an 80th birthday party (6 people). Having been before we knew the quality of the food would be excellent and it lived up to expectations. There is a copious menu that will satisfy the full range of dining preferences, and our group took full advantage of this large and varied choice. The starters....Just brilliant, with... More

Each time we visited I thought that the meal could not be better than the last time & how wrong was I!! First meal was a Steak with all the trimmings & at the time it was the best Steak that I had ever eating. Second time was a Spaghetti Carbonara & even with the Mushrooms it was sheer delight...

We held a family get together at Borve House and about 30 people were able to attend. I had managed to pre-order most of the meals and provided a seating plan which certainly helped to make the distribution of the meals easier. Each course was delivered within the space of a few minutes which is no mean feat when there... More

We arrived at our island home on a Friday evening and as we felt too tired to cook we decided to call at Borve House to ask whether we could eat there. We didn't have the telephone number to make a reservation. The dining room was quite busy but after the waitress consulted the kitchen staff we were shown to... More
