Went here with some family, because of the Michelin star, wanted to try it. The service was very friendly and we felt welcome. Children's portions are provided, and off-menu choices are available for them. One of our starters was a sweet corn soup, and it was delicious! However, the braised duck that was served as a main was rather tough,... More

Really I will give this restaurant a 4.5. It is Kinloch Lodge's main and really only restaurant and appears to be mainly geared for its guests but I would encourage anyone remotely close to Sleat to dine there. Set in a comfortable traditionally decorated dining room, the cuisine style is modern Scottish using local fish, meat and produce. First, one... More

As a vegetarian for over 33 years, I'm aware of the variety, quality and tastes of vegetarian food available and in abundant supply nowadays. However, sadly, they are not on the lunch menu at Kinloch. In June we went for a special celebratory lunch with family and were very disappointed. The service and staff were lovely, as was the atmosphere,... More

Visited again to celebrate birthday lunch with family. Lovely reception in lounge with amuse bouche. Set lunch is magnificent, using only the best Scottish produce. Soupçon red pepper & olive sublime. Starters of pigeon breast with black pudding or scallops & warm crab mousse were exquisite. Mains of Barbary duck breast & pulled pork potatoes or sea bass & smoked... More

The main dining room here is charming and nicely furnished with a eclectic collection of period chairs and paintings. The service however seems to rely on the charm of a lovely girl from Australia and her boyfriend from New Zealand - with inexperienced local girls helping out - the restaurant is very busy and the tasting menu starts with a...

Lunch here is a real treat - not busy or crowded nor overly formal - we enjoyed some excellent game - Pidgeon in particular was very special, and the steaks were good - cheese board to die for too. Friendly and helpful service, and even obtained a signed recipe book - perfect!

A first class restaurant that deserves its Michelin star. For breakfast we had a very good choice. For dinner we went into the lounge where we had canapés and the chance to look at the menu and wine list before being taken into the dining room
