“Excellent menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

We had lunch here on Thursday. It was quiet and relaxing, about twelve people eating at this time.The menu is excellent, ranging from sandwiches to steaks with lots to choose from. The staff are nice and welcoming and the service was quick. We had Scampi and Black Isle burger, both meals were large, no room for a sweet! A good place to eat but you would be advised to book for evenings.

Popped in for a quick bite to eat on a day trip around the Black Isle. Had the Station Club sandwich. Amazing. Best we have eaten outside of New York and that is the home of the sandwich. Lovely fresh salad and coleslaw with it too. Will make a point of staying here next time around. Excellent service and good banter with the owner the lady from Kent.

Stayed at Station Hotel, Avoch on a Friday night in April 2012. Everything about the stay was excellent. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly - not to mention accommodating in ensuring we got everything we required from our stay there. The dinner in this hotel is just amazing - a vast menu sure to have something to please everyone, cooked fresh, excellent portion sizes, very tasty and served by friendly staff again. The hot Malteser crepe is a definite must have! The rooms have recently been refurbished and were very clean, fresh and comfortable. As for breakfast (the full Highland/Scottish cooked breakfast) - what can I say - best hotel breakfast contender? I think so.....
Fully recommend staying at this hotel, or popping in for food if time is shorter than an overnight stay.

Myself, my partner & her son took our respective parents out for Mother's Day & had previously booked a table at The Station for this occasion. What a great decison that turned out to be. We all had different starters which were served quickly & pleasantly by the very polite young waitress. The starters were huge! Ranging from tempura prawns which contained six massive prawns to the deep fried brie which had six huge chunks of delicious brie. Most of our party ordered the carvery for the mains which again contained a huge amount of meats, potatoes & various veg all cooked very well & served piping hot. Fantastic!! Our bill was very reasonable & we will most certainly be back here pretty soon. In summary, great food, mega portions, good Guinness (always important!!) & lovely friendly staff. Take my advise - Try this place. You won't be disappointed.

Myself, my Partner and my Mother decided to venture to the Station Hotel in Avoch for a lunch on Saturday whilst out and about. We were met with a voluminous menu which on questioning staff "are you telling me I can get anything from this menu", was told "yes indeed, all cooked fresh, welcome to our menu".

My Mother a Coeliac has horrendous bother at times finding something she can eat on menu's, here we were told that she could have anything she wanted "tweaked" to her liking. That personal touch was very much appreciated.

We had a fabulous, tasty and very reasonably priced experience. Prices were good for lunchtime snacks, and you went from £5 for a basic baked potato up to £14/15 for a hearty venison dish. Take some time with the menu, it is worth a read, and make sure you wipe your chin if you salivate excessively.

Both Male and Female Waiting Staff were attentive, friendly and nothing seemed too much bother. Good Craick Black Isle Style.

Food advertised as being served all day/7 days (I think it was 12-8 - please check before you go).

I'd also like to point out the main Lounge Bar has been updated in decor, a warming dark purple interior with accents of white welcomes both hungry and thirsty traveler.

Don't drive past and miss the opportunity of grabbing a bite here.

We're not from the area. The family were in the Station Hotel on Friday night of the 25th November for a meal. Great menu, great food, lovely staff and reasonably priced.

The locals are lucky to have such a place on their doorstep.

We visited the Station Hotel in August 2011 and can really recommend it as a great place to take the kids out for a meal. If you go in expecting fancy surroundings and fine dining, you may be disappointed but if you want a very high standard of home cooking, using premium ingredients and a hearty welcome, you're in the right place. We went as a couple, with granny and two young kids. We opted for a kiddy box each for the kids which exceeded our expectations. OK, the sandwiches were cut very thick, which picky kids may not like but where else do you get so much good food for your money? Fresh strawberries and a mars bar completed the box...or did it? No, the kids also got a small knickerbocker glory with ..wait for it..real whipped double cream (not out of one of those spray can things). Oh yeah..a drink was included as well. Our main meals were also very generous portions and the quality was very good. There were toys available for the kids to play with and plenty of families having a last meal out before school started again the next day. There have been many times eating out when I have felt that the quality is worse than I would offer guests coming round for a meal at our house..not so here. We would definitely go back any time.

BTW, I never at any moment felt that the staff were clueless or unfriendly. I admired them for their efficiency as they seem to have to run up and down stairs to the kitchen all the time. What you get is lots of local warmth and character. It's a relaxed place in a seaside village.
