The food is local produce with amazing sauces, try all the venison dishes these

“Lovely fresh food and great service”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

My husband and I booked here for one night during a 2 night stay in newtonmore. Based on tripadvisor reviews we booked for 1st night and were not disappointed. There was a 2 course set menu for £13.95 or you could order from the A la carte menu and also mix and match between the two. There was lots of choice and food was amazing. We had bread to start and 2 courses each and a bottle of wine for £51 so good value, too full for dessert. Special mention to the young girl serving as she was very friendly and efficient while tending to all the tables by herself and restaurant was full. Will definately return here on my next visit to this area.

“Fantastic fresh food and friendly service”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Letterbox restaurant was highly recommended to us by Dougie from Cragherne House Hotel. He suggested we booked in advance. He was not wrong. It was packed! 2 courses for £13.50 or a la carte. A separate menu for vegetarians/vegans. All local, fresh food. Huge choice. Went 2 nights running as spoilt for choice on first night. Imaginative combinations of ingredients ensured a novel experience. Waitress is very competent, friendly. Would go again but have to go home!

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Just back from having dinner in The Letterbox, 2 courses for £13.95, the menu was amazing and really struggled to choose between the a la carte and the set menu, so many good dishes to choose from. The food was amazing, the service was first class by a lovely friendly young lass, Highly recommend stopping here if you are in the area. It's been a long time since we have had such good food and great value for money.

“Cosy restaurant with a good choice of menu”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Good value for money with a nice, cosy, ambiance. The food was excellent and nicely presented. Would liked to have gone again, but it was closed on Monday and Tuesday. Booking recommended.
