“Nice food and speedy service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Called in for a late lunch and the place was heaving both inside and at the outside tables but managed to get a table by the door which was just being vacated. Ordered our fish and chips and expected to be waiting for ages given how busy it was, although on talking to the staff they said it was 'quiet' and they only considered it busy when you couldn't find somewhere to 'stand'. The meal arrived within about 15 minutes and was one of the best plates of fish and chips I have ever had being dry, crispy and plentiful. The beer batter was superb and the tartare sauce nicely served in oyster shells.
Although the place was extremely busy the staff were very helpful and took the time to have a bit of a laugh and joke so what more could you ask for when calling in for a bite to eat after travelling the pass of the cattle.

“A great pub to finish off a jaw-dropping drive at.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

Friendly characterful pub with amazing views out towards Raasay and Skye. Food was excellent. Langoustines and oysters were great. Fish and chips was as good as any I've had. Wine list was decent. Watched deer come down to foreshore to graze. Suspect they'll end up on someone's dinner plate soon. Recommended. The views on the way to this great destination are also stunning.

“Lovely scenery, busy pub.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

Visited twice during our 5 day stay in Applecross. Lots of pleasant staff available to provide good service in very busy pub. Presentation good although food tasted average. I felt locals were very much absent as a result of Inn feeling like a restaurant than a community 'local' which I felt disappointed in.

“Yet again a fantastic meal and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

As previously I could not go to Applecross and not sample the menu in the Applecross Inn. I had soup followed with a large plate of Languestines in Garlic Butter with a side salad and bread. Yum Yum is really all I can say and the service was friendly and efficient. I enjoyed this with a couple of pints of lager outside on a beautiful evening. Atmosphere as it always has been when I have visited was relaxed and extremely chilled. This time I went alone with my dogs for company which is another thing I like about this place. I will return again all being well, and again and again. Fab place and fab pub with great grub.

“Nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

Had a good meal here but it is just good pub grub at high prices, portion size is small, so order a starter or be prepared to order dessert.The Inn is really the only place to eat in Applecross the Potting Shed closes early evening. It gets very busy and I recommend you get there early to eat or book we did see some reserved signs.
