After a day out at Mallaig, called in here just before 7. Immediately shown to our table, friendly and helpful staff .The food wasn't short in coming, great portions and really tasty. Just couldn't fault it. We will back tomorrow for our evening meal.

On a very busy wet afternoon, we had a most acceptable lunch. Parking right outside the door (well, almost). Staff very friendly, but because of the large number of people there cleaning up on the tables was a bit of an issue.

Stopped here on the way to the Isle of skye. Was clean and comfortable inside and was not an issue getting a table. Service was quick and the food was pretty good. Would be happy to return again.
