I think we caught the restaurant on a bad night - the restaurant had been booked out by one huge party; and we ate in the bar. To its credit, the kitchen coped. But I can only assume that they had been caught out and...More

Scalloway Hotel Restaurant food is fabulous! They well deserve their 2 AA Rosettes. Locally sourced wherever possible, modern, beautifully cooked and presented.

This is a very good small family hotel and the restaurant is welcoming, traditional and good quality. It’s great to find somewhere so good off the beaten track.

Called into Scalloway to collect provision and had lunch here. Staff seemed rushed off their feet but we counted less than 6 people, food came quickly though and tasted great. Nice relaxing bar with a good selection in the bar and on the menu.

We ate here while staying and found the food a delight. Definitely one to recommend but I would advise booking as it got busy and is not that big.
