“Super-fresh seafood amidst some of the most dramatic scenery” is the draw to this “exceptionally busy” Highlands inn. “It’s a pub that does proper pub food (and I don’t mean the sort of gastro-pub stuff that most pubs do now, but old-school pub grub, with red onion in the salad and sliced brown bread), but what a location” and with “seafood, in particular, that’s worthy of a ‘posh’ dining room”; “good craic” too.

A “stunning” Highlands peninsula setting adds a sense of drama to this “very busy but well-organised” restaurant-with-rooms; add in “consistently good” and “great value” food (local catch being the speciality) and it’s easy to see why it has such a “loyal fanbase”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
