Paid Logie Steading a visit today and have to say was completely disappointed. We decided to have a nice day out as a family having a walk down the River Nairn first and choosing to have lunch at the Logie Steading as had heard lots about this place but had never been. Arrived just after 1pm to a packed Olive Tree Cafe. The place was in chaos with no tables to sit at for lunch and the upstairs being only for teas/coffees and cakes and a queue that was out the door. You have to allocate yourself a table first before ordering at the counter. Had to wait around 10 minutes to get seated and no staff assistance for this either. A host would have been able to advise how long we would have to wait. Found a table and then looked at the menu. I would say a fair choice but rather overpriced whilst I am being in an honest kind of mood. Our order consisted of Ploughmans platter at just over £6, spicey chicken ciabatta at just under £10 (this was served with salad and coleslaw NO fries) and then to top off our disappointment they told us that they had run out of soup - at 1pm!!! Our kids were really looking forward to this so instead they had to settle for a jam sandwich and an egg sandwich. Drinks choice, you could have any coffee or tea under the sun however the soft drinks choice was those lovely expensive elderflower, ginger beer, old fashioned lemonade bottles, coke/diet coke and cartons of juice for kids. Wasnt going to go for a cake but felt that whilst we were there and we were being rooked for the meals we should get rooked for the cakes too. Malteaser slice £2.20 and mint aero slice £2.20 - sadly neither tasted all that good. £45.00 later we left and wont be returning any time soon wish we had gone a little longer in the car and stopped at the revamped Brodie Country Fare instead
The plus side the building looks beautiful and the little whisky shop was manned by a lovely couple who were very nice, sure I have seen them somewhere else before.
