We called in here while staying nearby. The staff are very friendly and efficient and the menu has a good choice including daily specials. Recommend the Angus pie which is freshly cooked and the venison burger.

I stopped at this sweet little cafe for an afternoon scone on my way to Torridon. The cafe was quiet and charming. Both the scone and hot chocolate were excellent. A great find!

We had used the café in the past and when we returned to the area this time, we had it recommended to us again. Our meal was very good - service was OK. We saw a couple having scones with cream and strawberries - we had had a large meal so asked for some strawberries and ice cream for dessert.... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way down to Torrindon. Such a cute, cosy place. We ordered sandwiches with salads and they were made with excellent high quality ingredients. Service was excellent, puddings were amazing and it was good value for money. Definitely recommend stopping here if you want a great, filling lunch.

We liked the look of the cafe when we drove past so it was an obvious choice for a quick lunch after a walk in the hills. The food was good, as were the coffees and hot chocolate. However, the service was slow. We were seated quickly, but had a long wait for our order to be taken and an... More

We got recommended this cafe by a local in a neighbouring town. It did not disappoint! They accept dogs in a small part of the cafe which is great, the interior is very cute and homely, and the staff were lovely. Even though it was early we had cake instead of breakfast because the menu looked so good - give... More

We arrived at The Whistlestop having seen some tasty dishes on a menu which said 'last orders at 6pm'. We normally eat at around 7 but decided to go along at 5.30 and eat early. Sadly we were turned away as we hadn't booked (2 tables were empty) and they 'close at 6'. It is probably lovely to eat there... More
