We visited on August Bank Holiday weekend and didn't have long to wait to be served. This was my first, and hopefully not my last, visit to this attractive restaurant/cafe/farm shop/picnic area. It is positioned in an ideal spot overlooking the Cromarty Firth from the north shore. The selection of food and cakes is impressive and choices are hard to make! Service was good and newspapers are freely available for customers to read. The thoughtful sheltered car parking area for dogs is such a good idea and one which I am sure dog-owners will greatly appreciate.

We stopped here fr breakfast on our way to Thurso. Situated in a very pleasant location by the Cromarty Firth, with fab views over the water.
We had breakfast here and the hot filled rolls were superb. We didn't try the cakes on display in the chiller cabinet but I did consider a doggy bag as they looked delicious.
One we had eaten we has a look around the adjoining shop which sold local produce and some nice little bits and bobs.
This will definitely become a regular stopping place for us on our way North in future.

Looking over the Cromarty Firth towards the rolling farmland of the Black Isle, a meal at the Storehouse is always a pleasant prospect. This has long been one of our favourites for Sunday lunch; a no-nonsense canteen style blended with friendly service, and food that ranges from good to truly excellent, makes for a lovely informal meal.
There's invariably a beautifully-cooked roast (pork today, with superb crackling, gorgeous stuffing, a beetroot relish and the usual plateful of vegetables done to a turn), almost always with Yorkshire pud. Fish and chips - the fish battered to perfection, though perhaps a little under-seasoned - is another great standby, but variety is offered by a constantly-changing range of soups, quiches, casseroles and excellent salad platters, together with imaginative vegetarian options.
Fans of home baking will love the array of scones and flapjacks by the salad counter; meringues, cakes and all things creamy are to be found behind you in the chiller, together with a splendid choice of tipples and soft drinks.
Take your tray, then, and be guided to a table, either in the main dining room, in the adjoining marquee (where you are most likely to have to share one of the long benches) or, Highland weather permitting, al fresco by the firth. Views are guaranteed to all but those at the back of the main dining room. The marquee is heated in cold times but, if all you fancy is a coffee and a chat, one of the low tables by the stove at the entrance may be just the ticket.
Service can sometimes be a little chaotic, but at around £15 for two courses and something (non-alcoholic) to drink, you're not expecting fine dining, are you?
The measure of a restaurant in any tourism-driven region is how busy it is out of season. Arriving at the Storehouse on a Sunday in the depths of Winter, you'll still see a bustling car park and, in the Summer, failure to arrive by midday will usually mean a lengthy queue. If you're after good food at good prices in a wonderful setting, you'll have to travel a long way to beat this.

We stopped here enroute to Inverness Airport and were wowed by the food and the views. Local people eat here (we chatted to them whilst queuing for our food)! Yes, you will have to queue, but it's very amicable with people chatting about what they will eat. It's very popular but there's enough seating for all!
