Three of us ate here while diving in Skye. Busy Pub. A band set up at 9.30 to entertain a wedding party. Shared a plate of lagoustine between 3 as a starter. Then two of us went for the special Pork Cheek and Loin and the other Venison. All very tasty. My main was so delayed, because of a mix... More

The restaurant for the hotel and the Pub share the same kitchen. If you eat in the hotel you'll get rolls with your mean and will pay a little more for the service. If you eat in the Pub, you order at the Bar and they bring the food to you. Either way, you're eating the same food. What's especially... More

Stopped in for lunch here, food was perfectly adequate, but young suited man behind the bar was indifferent at best, rude at worst - had to be hauled out of the kitchen by a local to serve us, and then ignored us standing at the bar and another table waiting for their order to be taken in an otherwise empty...

Dined with friends in what promised to be a lovely evening in a beautifully set out resto but unfortunately it turned out to be memorable for the wrong reason! My wife's main course (chicken in a broth) was tough and tasteless and a young member of staff agreed to change it without question. 10 minutes later the replacement came which... More

Having read the reviews we were excited about going for a meal here. We sat outside as we had a dog with us. The food was good but quite pricey for what it was. The Cesar salad was pretty mediocre with two anchovies tucked away. Soup and salad portion were quite small. Fish and chips good. Real Ale was very... More

I've eaten, with friends, in the Bar which has a pleasant atmosphere (particularly when the fire is lit) but both the lounge and the dining room areas are rather special, in their elegance and homeliness. I had fish and chips and my friend, the risotto-both coming as generous helpings. We didn't try a starter, nor a dessert (having stuffed our... More

Eilean Iarmain is something special. Unique in fact and until you eat there or better still stay overnight in its uniquely different bedrooms you will not know what I mean.

We were staying in this beautiful area so ate dinner in the hotel bar 3 times during the week. Being on holiday, we were quite happy soaking up the atmosphere and weren't looking to rush through our meals, however, one night was spoiled with an exceptionally long wait for it (nearly an hour) with no explanation. Maybe understaffed, maybe lost... More

It was wonderful stopping in this authentic Gaelic pub. Our service was amazing and the cod was perfectly cooked. We are traveling with a group of 10 and that has sometimes created a problem. They were so accommodating. I recommend it!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B host, and granted the hotel is lovely in a very picturesque setting. When we arrived around 6:15, we were told that dinner wasn't served until 6:30, which was fine as it gave us a bit of time to relax in their lounge and look over the menu. Shortly after 6:30, a...
