There is a varied menu plus a daily specials board which means you have some difficult choices to make. All dishes utilise only the finest of locally sourced ingredients. For our main courses the three of us ordered halibut in a prawn sauce, venison with dumplings and a sirloin steak. Each was served with vegetables and potatoes and was beautifully cooked and well presented. As the restaurant is not licensed we brought our own wines to compliment our meal - no corkage charge!
The service provided by Gus and his team added to the relaxed atmosphere, being as efficient as it was friendly.
Do not leave without a visit to the shop to check out their Harris Tweed range of bags, purses etc - unbelievable value!
We all enjoyed our evening immensely and look forward to our next visit.

The food and service was excellent and very reasonable priced. This would beat many other restaurants around the area. Definitely would recommend the Salmon chowder

I must admit, when my boyfriend suggested lunch and pulled into what looked to be a post office I was very suspicious. I entered the building and everywhere I looked I was intrigued.

We sat and my partner asked if the soup was homemade to which the owner said you will be hard pushed to find anything on the menu that isn’t. As everything is so lovingly made I was surprised at how many choices there were.

We have eaten there a few times now, alone and with friends and each time have chosen something different and been amazed at the quality.

It is busy from April to October so you need to book and it also isn’t licensed to sell alcohol so you can take your own if you wish.

Lovely fresh food all made from scratch wonderfully fresh seafood too. Not a chip meal in sight which was welcome. Couldn't fault any of it and the service was great as well. We will return for another cracking meal soon. Thanks again.
