“Average Food, Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We were staying in Lochboisdale so went to the hotel for an evening meal.
If there had been another choice we would have taken it !
The menu was expensive but we thought that the food might be up to a fine standard but unfortunately it wasn't.
£13.50 for steak pie which was ok but had a few spuds and a little bit of veg on the side that tasted like it had been nuked in the microwave wasn't worth the money I'm afraid !
The only saving grace was the dessert which was good.
I would go here for a pint and to sit in one of the comfortable leather chairs but not for a meal again.
Felt disappointed and ripped off to be honest.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Friendly staff, quick service, a good dinner. Recommended, especially if you're on the long haul up the (surprisingly long) Uists.

“Delicious Steak Pie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The food was delicious and great value for money, the only negative was no kids portions for dessert.
