What a fabulous find this little restaurant on the banks of Loch Carron was and within easy walking distance of the holiday cottage we had taken for the week. The food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. We are both vegetarian but were spoilt for choice. We especially enjoyed our after dinner coffee in the recently added lounge... More

A good quality restaurant on the shores of Loch Carron with stunning views of the village and mountains. Good selection of dishes at reasonable price, well cooked and beautifully presented. Warm welcome and discrete but friendly service. Great as a stop while touring or as a go to venue for dining.

Finally found somewhere open on the West Coast, in Winter, serving food late in the afternoon! And we weren't disappointed. The location is fab, just off the main road... The atmosphere was lovely with a wood-burning stove going to keep everyone warm. An excellent choice for singles, couples, families or groups of people! Service was excellent: plenty choice of tables... More

Luckily, the weather was kinder to us and we were given a pleasant welcome and enjoyed our lunches very much. They also have some delicious cakes. The toilet facilities were... More

Premises were cold on arrival - but quickly rectified by owner ( it was pretty much the end of the season - with only ourselves and one other table in use that evening), Very friendly and informative owner, clearly aiming to enhance the premises for next season. Food freshly cooked with good selection of drinks.

We ate here twice in three days both in the early afternoon. The owner was really friendly and helpful nod the food was hot and fresh. The cottage pie was excellent. Nothing too much trouble as we departed from the menu and substituted items. Good value.

Best shepards pie we've had. Really tasty, looked great, good size portion, lovely views over the loch and friendly and informative hosts. Our friends had called two days... More
