Are you sure you have the right place as we haven’t been full for a few weeks . Also it’s a bit unfair to give 1 star when you said you were here 10 times and kept coming back . Why no positive review? That’s quite rude of you . Donald

Plan your meal around the dessert menu! The Sticky Toffee Pudding is amazing and a treat to be only tasted in Scotland!! Service was friendly and prompt. Great to talk to the bar man who had lived in the US for a time.

The seating area is clean and comfortable, the food was very good. Our server was very friendly and quick. The sight of the servers standing behind the counter chewing their fingernails was a little disturbing, because the did not was their hand in between chewing their fingernails and serving the food.

The menu has something for everyone, fantastic food, the owner Donald takes his cooking and customer service seriously. After a delicious meal we sat on the comfortable sofa area with a liqueur. Very relaxed and a beautiful view of Gairloch. Owner Donald came out to introduce himself and ask if we enjoyed our meal. Can't wait to go back.
