Classy restaurant in little Dunvegan

The Old Schoolhouse was a surprise to us, higher end than we had expected. Presentation and food was very nice, a bit of a formal feel, which may or may not be to your taste, the best part being the leather chairs snug beside the crackling fire, where you can enjoy a drink in the small bar adjacent... read more

Cosy restaurant with a stove - quite quirky. Had a lovely filo pastry parcel filled up with vegetables and turnip to go along with it, accompanied by a fresh salad. Tables around me had the most delicious sea food platters and salmon steaks or you could just order a plate of fish 'n' chips. Good value for money. Very friendly... More

We were lucky to get a seat. It is wise to have reservations. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was wonderful. They had nightly specials. A little bar if you drink. We don't. This was the best place in town and we loved it.

We recently stayed at The Atholl Guest House (which is fabulous), they recommended that we tried there on our first night. Thank you Anne and Ronnie, you were right it was wonderful. The staff are so helpful and chatted along even when they were extremely busy, and they are extremely busy! Go and book as soon as you get there... More

Very busy restaurant, we went on a Friday night but couldn't get a table so booked one for Saturday night. I had the salmon, tasty fish but needed a bit of sauce or something. My husband had the pheasant said it was good and my sister and partner had steaks which were good. Pudding were good and nice selection of... More

We recently dined here with our two year old son and the entire experience was great. Our waiter, Santi, was extremely friendly and kind to our son. The food was delicious and very well prepared. I highly recommend the lamb shank and mussels.

My husband and I dined at this restaurant for my birthday along with our 7 month-old daughter who at dinner time can be a bit of a handful. The food was delicious - the seafood cooked perfectly, and the rhubarb and blueberry crumble was simply delectable. Above all however, and the reason for the fifth star - the service was... More

Fresh local produce and lovely staff. We stopped by chance on a Sunday in May. And couldn't have chosen better. Clearly the locals like the Old School House as well as tourists.

The Old Schoolhouse gets top marks from us! It's in a very remote area which means they have a captive audience, this however did not effect the standard of food or service. We had starters of black pudding served with scallops and cauliflower purée and homemade soup both of which were delicious. The main courses were equally good, we both... More
