We stopped here hoping to get a table without pre booking and got one no problem. So glad we did as this was one of the best meals I have ever had. The restaurant was very clean and inviting, the staff were lovely and service was excellent as for the food it was presented beautifully and tasted like heaven. What... More

Blown away by the quality of the food, and particularly by the service. All too often Scotland lets itself down by not doing justice to its wonderful ingredients. This has restored our faith that excellence is possible at reasonable cost. Scallops, venison, lamb all excellent In fact no complaints at all. And the wine is obviously properly stored as it...

We were here in June with our Nat Hab group of 15 ---- The food was yummy and the service was very good too. Sorry I can't be more specific about what we had / forgot to write it down ---- but I know we really enjoyed our lunch. Lovely little town to have a walk around.

The Red Poppy was fantastic. We had the best meal of our holiday there. It was real Masterchef style. Husband had venison and I had salmon. The desserts were of the same high quality and presentation was immaculate. The staff were the greatest; helpful, cheerful and welcoming. Loved it all. Thanks.

Greeted on arrival and shown to table, drinks order taken, bottle of fresh water put on table, main orders taken all very promptly and the friendly staff could not be more helpful. Starter of cauliflower cheese soup was so yummy and served piping hot just how I like it. Main course of roast beef and trimmings was again delicious, my... More

Were visiting Strathpeffer to attend a family funeral so had to look for somewhere to eat and accommodation at the last minute. The Red Poppy served lovely food. A very satisfying, reasonably priced meal with attentive service. We also found lovely accommodation at Linnmhor House (see separate review). However, I fear these are two businesses with great potential which may... More

Stayed in Strathpeffer recently for a week and visited the RedPoppy twice as the food was so good. The food was delicious (haggis bonbons were divine) and all very reasonably priced. Staff were very cheerful and friendly and the restaurant always seemed full (always a good sign!). Would definitely return if ever up that way again.

Went in at 8:30 pm and had a lovely meal. The menu was very good . The only down side was being too full for a desert.

We were told when we arrived that it was steak night so they were doing sirloin steak for two with wine for £25 which represents a considerable saving on their normal prices. Steak was very well cooked and they were happy to make changes for my wife who cannot eat chips and onions. Service was prompt and friendly
