What a find! This was Michelin standard food and service, and whilst not cheap, certainly not at Michelin prices. 9.5 out of 10, and would have got 10 out of 10 except that the skin was left on the perfectly cooked halibut, and my wife has a total antipathy to this trendy English idea. Cook it on by all means,... More

Faultless! We were out for our leaving night out last night, table of 8, booked at short notice, meal was... More

Popped in here during a day trip to Scalloway expecting the usual pub grub - how wrong! Restaurant quality food at very reasonable prices, and, honestly, some of the best coffee I've had! Really friendly service too, but not in-your-face at all. My only complaint would be that the fish pie was so filling I had no room for the... More

This is a very good restaurant that is well worth visiting. We went for a Valentine's Day dinner, and selected from the set menu offerings. We both had Scalloway fish soup for the starter, and it was absolutely delicious. My partner had the steak with a beef and oxtail stew topping for his main, and he felt that the topping... More

Small hotel with its own restaurant and bar. Friendly staff. Better to book and reserve your meal in advance if going in a large group. Good menu choices.
