Dined in the restaurant on one night of our weekend stay. Enjoyed tiger prawns and scallops to start. Also tried an oyster each....worth a shot! Perfectly cooked venison and duck for mains. Definitely worth the price tag.

We attended the hotel restaurant for our 1st wedding anniversary dinner. Having booked our table we received a nice welcome and were able to choose where we sat. The restaurant was cosy, with a lovely fire. The menu choice was excellent, would say it is fine dining prices, The starters were excellent, great portion sizes, however would have liked another...

The staff were always very friendly and the food was of a very high standard. We were able to take our dog with us into the bar area and enjoy the restaurant menu. Would highly recommend the oak smoked salmon - delicious!

Love all of the food served here, the duck and seafood platter are a must try along with the burger served in the pub section. The only downside is there aren't very many vegetarian options.

We went there with a friend for dinner (without a reservation), and enjoyed the beautiful view over the loch Linnhe. The service was fast and friendly. I had the soup of the day, very good and quite filling, and a baked fillet of seabass, which definitely made it to my top 5 of the best fish I've ever had. My... More

We pitched up without a reservation on a Sunday evening. The hostess sat us at a window table. Floor to ceiling window, mind you, overlooking Loch Linnhe. Service was prompt and friendly, and the menu was varied with an emphasis on local produce. I had langoustine caught from the Loch, followed by venison. Hubby had Cullen Skink followed by pasta....
