Good Food, Great Service

This is a nice place with some character. I love the pew-like benches at the tables and the overall atmosphere. And the haddock and chips I had with the small side salad were tasty if not inspired. But the crown jewel is the service, at least the waiter who served me. He had a great attitude and... read more

We ate here a couple of times and probably the first time wasn't so great but the second time it was OK. Had grilled haddock on the first night and it was done so that the skin wasn't cooked and therefore if you ate it it was just disgusting. Second night went with the onion soup which was great and...

Not much food on a Sunday lunchtime in Durness but this does the job if you are stuck. Staff v friendly in this dark old pub/ cafe. We had average toasted sandwiches. Prices very reasonable.

Good food, good location, staff very obliging. We called in just before closing, the staff was most obliging even though ready to close. We enjoyed our meal and were not rushed.

As has been mentioned, this is not an inspiring looking place but being in the area at lunchtime we thought we would give it a go. Had a table overlooking the beautiful bay. Chose fishcakes and chips with a salad and chilli dip, and a coronation chicken panini. We both enjoyed what we had. With tea for two the cost... More

The outside of the pub doesn't look too appealing but inside a friendly and warm welcome awaits with great views of the beach below. The food was excellent and the service great too.

Very low quality food but it is serving a campsite in the main. Good selection of local ales which saved the day for us as we were wet through but most of the food is tinned esp the veg as you can see from others pics. If you want a nice meal perhaps try somewhere else (if available!) I asked... More

We dropped in just after opening (5 pm) on a Saturday night, expecting a small but mighty happy-hour crowd -- but, we were the first ones there! The Sango Sands bar area is pretty big and is located with spectacular beach and sea views. We perched ourselves on a comfy sofa with our beers and enjoyed a peaceful hour. We... More

The Oasis can be quite busy, especially on weekends. Service is good, efficient. Food is good quality pub fare. The Oasis is not fine dining (doesn't pretend to be), but you'll have a nice meal here.

As one of the very few in Durness, the camping's restaurant was a pleasant surprise, between the main road and the cliff tops, it offer a clean and quiet dinner location. Despite the first impression when entering in the restaurant, the food was very good, the staff was kind and quick. A must when traveling in this far North remote... More
