We ate here two nights in a row during our 3 day Isle of Skye tour. Both meals were fantastic! One night I ordered fish and chips, the fish was almost the size of my forearm!

Went in for 2 evenings for food and a couple of beers. The menu was not huge but what they did was very good and filling. Good selection of beers we enjoyed the Skye Gold and the jukebox played some good music. Enjoyed the rugby banter with Lenny!

Food is below average, another of those microwaving kitchens, that sums it up perfectly. On the other hand, service was friendly and the pub part is much better, nice range of drinks.

Very friendly bar. As it is off season we were the only two non locals in the bar but it did not take long for the owner to welcome us into the company off all the patrons and a good time was had. Worth a visit.

Our tour driver/leader told us this was the place he would eat, so there we came. Typical pub food. You need to order your food from the bar. Lots of local people hanging out here.

This pub is one of the few choices here. But, it was fine for a dinner of Haddock soup, chili over rice, and a beer. My opinion, it is not the best restaurant in town, but good for a filling, reasonably priced dinner.

We had the fish and chips, it was very good. If you eat here you must order at the bar! The King Haakon feels like your home town pub! Serving staff was very friendly.

Average food at average price point. Ordered the chili beef with rice and Pull Pork Ciabatta. Typical bar setting with lots of locals. Only 1 of 2 restaurants in the vicinity, the othet being Saucy Mary.

All three of us had the Haddock and chips which was great and a few drinks. Well priced with very friendly service and great atmosphere. The local dogs hanging out with their owners was a sweet bonus.
