We travelled a long way for dinner at the Peat Inn and our expectations, based on previous visits, were high but we will never return. It has been re-styled and the first two dining areas are bland and completely soulless. Despite staff rushing about and despite the fact the restaurant was less than half full it was 55 minutes before... More

A really good restaurant for a special occasion. We had the st lunch which was delicious and they cater for vegetarians in an elegant and imaginative way. Select a table with a garden view if you can.

Great modern decor in remote village with formal rather clinical service.Food variety good but prices reflect a higher standard than the presentation belies.my fish was overlooked and rather bland. The amuse Bouche and other incedentals were very welcome and tasty. The custard for my dessert never appeared.Relax the formality a little and boost the flavour spectrum.

First ever visit to the Peat Inn for lunch today ...I will certainly be back! The service was excellent and the food was divine. It's just wonderful to be spoilt and looked after to such a high standard ... my compliments to Chef Smeddle and to every member of your team. Difficult to choose but my personal favourite dish today... More

Had the tasting menu which was absolutely faultless. The staff are attentive and friendly making you feel at ease. The room is very comfortable, consisting of two levels. The bedroom and large bathroom on the lower floor and a sitting room with TV and a table and chairs for breakfast. I would highly recommend it if you want to spoil... More

Our first visit to the Peat Inn. From the moment we entered we were looked after as if we were the only guests there. The drinks the canapés, the delightful food experience made for a memorable evening. The choice of wine made for us by front of house gentleman was excellent and matches what all of us had. A great... More

Peat Inn lived up to its usual excellent high standard. We had the set menu lunch, which is outstanding value. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented. As always the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere and decor is lovely. The Veggie options were fabulous. We will be back again.

We went to the Peat Inn for the first time recently for a family celebration. I've planned to go for at least 20 years and I'm glad I made the effort. The service is of a very high standard, with just the right blend of friendliness and unobtrusiveness. The food was excellent too. I can see why it has such... More

Our 38th wedding anniversary celebration and nearly over 35 years since we first visited this very special place. It still IS our favourite restaurant and we feel every time we come that it just offers something special. A very warm welcome is always provided to guests and the cozy loung area helps sets the scene for an amazing tasting treat... More

The Peat Inn is owned by award winning Chef and columnist Geoffrey Smeddle and his wife Katherine. With Geoffrey at the heart of the kitchen and Katherine's warmth and care filling the restaurant, they have been successful in building on the very fine reputation of one of Scotland's most cherished destinations.
The Inn has existed on this spot since the 1700s. Today, the Michelin starred restaurant with rooms continues to welcome guests who appreciate the special and very personal experience which is the hallmark of The Peat Inn.
Three small dining rooms make up the restaurant, providing an intimate setting for lunch or dinner. Each room is also available for private parties if required. The reception lounge with its deep sofas and open log fire, creates an atmosphere which is elegant and refined and made all the more enjoyable by the friendly and attentive service.
A few steps from the restaurant is The Residence where eight individually designed luxury suites offer the opportunity for a rather special night away, where the pleasures of the table spill over into a charming over-night setting.
From your aperitif upon arrival to coffee and a liqueur before you have to depart, we are sure you will enjoy every moment of the wonderful cuisine and hospitality at The Peat Inn.
