“Lovely situation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were staying in a cottage in Gairloch,so the Old Inn was very handy for evening meals.

The food and service were excellent.

“Great seafood and local specialities!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Rural Scotland doesn't have the name of a 'gourmets paradise' but the kitchen staff of Gairloch's Old Inn makes a great effort to surprise it's guests with some of the finest food in Wester Ross. Go for the local game, fish or scallops if you have the opportunity.

“Poor service and poor excuses”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

To be told......"we have new chefs learning the menu" is a dire reason for poor service.
It was a catalogue of errors......wrong dishes brought out, food being passed over heads, hot plates handed to customers and being told "its not that hot", dishes missing so we were asked "what are you missing cause the chefs are a nightmare"
My recommendation......get a picnic and go to the beach!!!

“Nice Inn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Having been here last year for an evening meal while staying at the Highland lodge we were really looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately we were disappointed with one of the main courses from four being inedible and the ather three average. However the complaint was dealt with very professionally and with the offer of an alternative refused the offending meal was omitted from the bill. It was disappointing as the main reason for staying here was the great food last year. We stayed at the Inn as the Lodge was fully booked and were happy with the accommodation. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was very good with everything being freshly cooked to order. Would have to see great reviews however before thinking of staying here again.
