Excellent stop on the West Highland Way! I ate like a king : the meat was very tasty and cooked close to perfection. I particularly enjoyed the haggis and the fresh vegetables served with my steak. The place and its decoration is modern and efficient. It makes you feel good and ready to enjoy the main experience : their food... More

We had a beautiful meal in this beautiful restaurant in this quite little village of Newtonmore. The waitress was very attentive and our food was beautifully cooked and presented. We will certainly go back next time we visit.

Had dinner here. The place is very quiet. Good menu, even though a little abuse of sauces (but that is part of the regional tradition). Very friendly service. If you are around, it deserves a try.

A small restaurant in the middle of Newtonmore, where we have just had a delicious meal, made with fresh ingredients and fantastic flavours. Really something special in this small village, in a larger town this restaurant would be available only by booking well in advance. The chef has great skill in combining flavours - must try the pate with home-made... More

Fresh ingredients cooked to a high standard resulting in an excellent combination. Found it difficult to choose from the short but varied menu. Very pleasant staff. We're just in Newtonmore for one night otherwise we'd be back to the Letterbox tomorrow. Definitely recommended.

This is the third time I've been to the Letterrbox since moving into a cottage in Newtonmore in November. Louise is always a great hostess and the menu is kept fresh with a fantastic selection of specials. Food is fresh, seasonal and has always been delicious. The friends and family I've bought to the restaurant have all loved it. Decent... More

Ok food, but not great. The vegetables they served were especially unimaginative. I don't think it's that hard to make vegetables taste great, but they certainly didn't manage. Also, as others have said, it was very cold in the restaurant!
