Visiting here for a meal has become a family tradition whenever the lot from down south come up to stay! The menu is always good with a choice of daily specials and the long list of delicious traditional fare. Portions are excellent, the gift shop is unique (you can go and have a little browse while you wait for your... More

We really enjoyed our meal at the oakwood restaurant. The menu is extensive and the dishes we had (mainly fish and seafood) were very well cooked and very tasty. The hosts were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. We'll certainly be back!

We found Oakwood Restaurant on TripAdvisor and we are pleased to say it lived up to its rating! We enjoyed a delicious selection of local seafood (amongst many other types of dish) which was reasonably priced, and served with wonderful hospitality. Well worth the journey - we will certainly return.

My wife and myself were on a boating holiday and decided to book here as it was very close to our berth. We were glad to be in the warmth as it was freezing cold outside and the premises were warm and welcoming. The level of service was attentive however when I asked for French mustard I was given whole... More

We went to the Oakwood restaurant last night and our meal from start to finish was absolutely amazing. I was jealous of my partner's haggis started though my page was great too! We both had the lamb for main course and wow. Words failed us both. Our desserts were equally as good. Our waiters were on the ball and big... More

We went there as we have never visited before but the reviews on Tripadvisor were tempting. Externally is OK and the dedicated car park is a convenient size. Internally, we found it quite ... different from other places we have been. It's a mixture of country house restaurant, a wee shop and a wee ... post office, imagine. Cuppas hanging... More

I had lunch here yesterday with two friends. We had very good service and the food was excellent. Perhaps a bit pricey but the portions were generous. It seems to be a conversion of an old house, and the Post Office (open three days a week for two hours) is housed there too. There is also a small gift shop... More
