Our order for lunch was taken by a young guy who came across as a little inept. Three times he came back to check, and to be truthful, we were getting to the eyes thrown up mode.
Whilst waiting for our drinks, we read the card on the table which explained:
" Artysans is part of the wider Calman service to young people in Highland who experience difficulty finding or keeping work or an independent home".
"Every penny made here will be re-invested in the work we do to train and support young people in the Highlands".
Suddenly everything became clear: the number of people in the kitchen and front of house for a mid-week lunch just could not have made commercial sense. The young guy was in training, and he was obviously nervous.
The food arrived and it was fresh, tasty and plentiful, in fact the bowl of soup would have fed a family for a week! The side bowl of chips was a small mountain! Sandwiches were accompanied by a fresh side salad with a tasty dressing.
Artysans really does take a bit of finding, but it is well worth seeking out.
Ask a local where TK Max is, and it's across the road.
