Every time Langass Lodge was mentioned there was a sharp intake of breath and the word expensive was used. In our experience this is far from the truth, it is a little bit more than we had been paying on the islands but they do offer a lot more than chicken curry, beef curry and chilli con carne on their menu!

We found the staff to be extremely helpful and welcoming, something lacking in some of the establishments we visited on the islands. Who cares that there was a delay in printing the menus as the atmosphere was something to be savoured. The amusing incident with the waitress asking us what we wanted to eat before we had seen the menus was enjoyed by more than us in the bar and only helped make the atmosphere better.

I had Cockle Fritters as a starter and Lemon Sole as a main, my husband had Deep Fried Squid as a starter and a Lamb Shank as a main, everything was excellently cooked and came with a bowl of well seasoned scumptious chips. We were so full a dessert was out of the question.

We have to say that this was the best culinary experience we had while travelling the islands.

We ate here numerous times on our holiday in North Uist, both in the bar and in the restaurant. The food was excellent - you would not get better fish anywhere. Everything was perfectly cooked, the setting is great and the staff friendly. They have an excellent choice of wines by the glass (including dessert wine). The service was pretty slow on a couple of occasions and it is reasonably pricey but, as they say, you get what you pay for. They don't seem to do straight vegetarian main course (ie no meat no fish) - I don't know if they do it if you ask?

Cheap by London prices and quality better. Had outstanding fresh lobster, languistines , skate and halibut with perfect sauces and Good wine list. V cheerful service. Lovely setting and not terribly stiff but certainly more formal than most places here.

A country hotel with great bar food and an excellent restaurant. This place is not cheap, but you get quality and it is worth paying for. Friendly informative staff, a lovely setting and brilliant location

Bar menu rather than main restaurant.
Starter - Tasty - King prawn rolls & sweet chilli dip
Main - Awful - Beer battered fish & chips. This was extremely greasy, the batter was so saturated it could hardly stick to the fish. I had to leave half of it.
Service - Food made to order so very slow but waitresses were very professional.
Atmosphere - very traditional (Harris Tweed), yet bright and modern (light open conservatory area to the rear).
