Best food ever

We only stayed for two nights in the campsite but we ate here both nights. Truly gorgeous food. The hosts are lovely and they will fit everyone in, even though they are really busy every night. Oh my god the sticky toffee pudding! Can't wait to go back. We want to go back and actually stay at the... read more

We ate from the van outside which is part of the inn and we were certainly not disappointed. The owner has opened the van to take some pressure off the kitchen and this is certainly sensible and has not compromised quality. Splendid value.

Spent our evening in Applecross here and was really happy. We had to be squeezed into a table with an older couple but we were happy enough given how busy it was that night. Food was really nice and portion size was good as I am a big eater. Prices were fine too. Following dinner we sat at the bar... More

Had lunch here before heading home on Sunday - great food, the fish couldn't have been more fresh! Would definitely recommend! And the views from out the front are really something else! I'll be back! Cheers!

We traveled to applecross from Wakefield with our stop offs or journey was 13 hours, the reason for our trip was the applecross games, we stayed on the campsite close to the inn and used the pub for food and drink . All the staff were very friendly even to the point of showing us the best way to shell... More

It's a great mission I have set myself , to be a bit of a crab sandwich fanatical researcher but I do believe I have found the best at Applecross Inn, my mission is accomplished! If it weren't couple of hundred miles from home this inn would be my local. Still, it is definitely the local of my dreams. Great... More

Friendly staff, huge variety of food with lots of fresh, local seafood offered. Lots of local / Scottish craft beers too. Band were great. Fab wee pub with lots of... More

Its always difficult when somewhere is so well known and recommended, how likely were we to be disappointed? Good news, no disappointment at all. A really lively pub and restaurant and despite what seemed like little chance of a table we were quickly seated.The staff seem unflappable in the face of the starving hoardes! We had really good food, fresh... More

As part of our planned tour to experience this most scenic area of Scotland, I knew we would be stopping at the ONE lunch spot available along the almost indescribable drive to Applecross (make sure you attempt this drive only with a very patient and focused driver!) I had imagined needing to settle for a limited menu of basic staples... More
