We were staying near Borve, so opted to head here for dinner as a drive to Stornaway would take a bit of time. Food was very tasty but I would echo other reviewers comments about portions being very big! I had scampi and my partner had the steak pie, both were delicious. My only regret would be opting for a... More

Lovely lunch at this modern hotel, good portions, good choice, good food (salmon), good service. Good views, some may find the modern style a little soulless in this setting. Really, what more do you need!

Popped into this establishment during a trip on the west side of Lewis, was hoping for beautiful fresh seafood and game taken from the many specialist food stuffs exported from the Islands, alas it was the standard pub grub - well overpriced! Which wouldn't be so bad if it was quality food but it had a very factory made feel... More

My dad and I had a superb meal here on the final night of our Outer Hebrides tour. We did have to book in advance but this was easy. My dad enjoyed the deep fried brie followed by a beautifully presented prawn marie rose salad, which he said was delicious and really different. I enjoyed the chicken live paté, which... More

Dined with my husband and 4 children, I had checked previous reviews and had popped in for a look at the menu before booking a table.
