We really wanted to like this place,the aims of the mission are good and it has a fantastic modern building. However the food was poor quality, the service non-existent and half the menu was off. With better quality ingredients and some passion from the staff, this place could be a reasonably priced gem.

Disappointed that the quality of the food has gone from top chef to microwaved. Still excellent value for money, but the excellent chef they had when they opened has moved on and taken the quality with him.

Very basic, BUT certainly value for money. Situated at the far end of Lochinver and has plenty of grass for kids to play. The food is good and plentyful.

Decided to go along to the mission for breakfast one morning it has had a face lift since the last time i was in which was a few years ago ,a very relaxed atmosphere with a great sea fairing layout . Full breakfast was not the greatest for the price, £5.50 i think ,with shrivelled mushrooms and 1 piece of toast cut diagonally ,tea was an added extra which i thought should have been part of the deal it certainly didnt leave me full afterwards ,my son had 2 rolls with bacon and sausage which would have been okay if they hadnt been served with those bun type rolls which dwarf the filling.service was okay

good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Not always the best organised but the food and staff make up for it.
