Excellent meal. Varied menu. Everything well cooked. Not cheap, but not overpriced for the would love to have tried a dessert but starters and main courses very generous.

Seafood to die for, good surroundings and very pleasant and helpful staff. The owner was very attentive and provided info on the attractive paintings. The food was of a very high standard and at a fair price. It's a bit out of the way from the main centre of Castlebay but well worth a visit. Selfcareing, we didn't eat out... More

Over our week in Barra, we spent a few afternoons stopping off for a beer before heading to the cottage. Lovely relaxing atmosphere.

Dinner tonight here was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed both specials - cockles in a delicious sauce and scallops (the biggest and juiciest ever!) with Stornaway black pudding. The place was buzzing, and service was friendly and gentle.

We had lunch here last year and really enjoyed the food so we returned this year. The food was just as good. I had some delicious crab claws. My husband had a burger which he also really enjoyed.

10/10 for location. Food is about the same as you would get in an English pub but well cooked and presented. The only restaurant on the north side of the island and worth a stop On a tour of Barra.

We went here for dinner 2 nights in a row as it was still just out of season and not much was open but to be honest we would have gone back the second time anyway as the food was excellent.

Popped in after a day trip to Eriskay to book dinner for following evening. Had a drink and a chat with waitress, very friendly and local to the island. Dinner the following evening was delicious, some may find it a little pricey but the quality is outstanding. Seafood was locally sourced, had hand dived scallops as a starter, then venison... More
