“Surprisingly good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

When we stayed in Mallaig, we decided to give the Steam Inn a shot.
At first i was a bit sceptical because the interior was a bit dated and the seats strange and the waitress quite shy, for no reason obviously.
The food was perfect and really delicious! It told me again another lesson to not judge a book by its cover.

Go and eat there, but maybe sit in the bar and have a bar-meal because that seems to be newer than the eating part.

“Great choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I had a very good lunch last sunday, excellent food and fresh fish.
Place seems not so nice inside, little too dark and poor.
Service was very professional and food fantastic. I recommend this restaurant to everyone wants to taste real seafood!

“Best pub food for 100 miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

I had a venison burger with bacon and haggis. It was much better than I expected and probably the best burger I've had this year. My wife had the chowder and it was excellent. The pub was busy with tourists from all over and the staff were efficient and friendly.

“Good food, great welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

This was a wee gem for us on a very sad occasion. Warmly welcomed by the staff, nothing was too much trouble. The kids meal wasn't fantastic but the rest of the food was delicious, hot and served promptly. Would definitely recommend, would love to go back sometime.
