This restaurant combines freshly cooked food with speedy service so we got great breaded haddock, potatoes and peas delivered to the table in less than 15 minutes. An ideal Friday lunch with friendly service and good views of the Cromarty Firth. Good homemade soup too.

Great site for HGV overnight parking. The menu is varied and food quality is very high. Free WiFi and free HGV parking. Clean and warm shower and toilets. MOTO could well take a lesson from this site regarding customer facilities.
