Discovered however that for 3 nights of the week it was closed due to a local private booking and when it was open our reserved table was taken by someone else and we were put elsewhere. The food was OK but to be honest... More

Stopped here at 3 in afternoon and found it nice quiet and relaxing. I had a lovely chat with the girls. The food was delightful and plenty. Crofters pie very tasty and bigger than usual. Quaint touch by having puzzles on the table if you have the time, we never. Price I thought was on par with just about anywhere... More

My family has visited this welcoming restaurant every year while in Sutherland. The food is excellent value with a wide choice from snacks to meals. Tasty homebaking and a wonderful breakfast welcomes us after a long journey. My children look forward to their visit and reading the visitors book.
