A quirky, yet lovely and relaxed restaurant, serving homemade food with good veggie options and decent portion sizes. Friendly staff and food cooked well. Will definitely go back!

Found this gem of a restaurant latish one evening when everywhere else was either closed or booked out. Our host, Jason was very warm and welcoming. The food was excellent with a variety of choice on the menu. Love the attached shop. Perfect for a browse while waiting for the meal.

Stopped by for lunch And wow what a great lunch we had. Super fast service, delicious generous portions freshly prepared and great banter with the owner. Perfect break on the way to the west coast. From now on it will be our preferred place to eat on the journey to Skye.

It is not licensed but that is no problem as you can take your own wine, which also makes the bill that bit cheaper.I would definitely recommend it and... More

I love Oakwood Restaurant. I have eaten there 3 times so far and it has been outstanding each time. I will definitely go back. The service is exceptional and very real, not the chain restaurant generic smile type, but very personal and understanding. The food is fantastic. I did read the negative reviews here but I must say I have... More

This this a lovely place to eat. The food is very good, locally produced wherever possible and better still not in any way pretentious- no jus, stacks or deconstruction to be seen!

After an exceptionally beautiful drive down the A836 from Thurso, we needed some food to get us home and decided to try Oakwood Restaurant as it had a few vegan options, high up on trip advisor and a healthy selection of meat, game and other carnivorous offerings. Arriving at 4.45pm on a Saturday, we were the only guests upon arrival... More
