We had an amazing meal here last year, and we were not disappointed on our return. We both had Cullen Skink to start - it was fantastic. He said it's the best he's ever had - and he has it a lot!! He had some sort of burger with haggis which he said was very good, but didn't get much... More

We booked lunch here following reviews on trip advisor for lunch venues in Mallaig. We were slightly disappointed when we entered the restaurant as it had more of a pub feel than we expected. The menu also disappointed a little as we were expecting a larger range of fish on the menu. We opted for the fish and chips and... More

There was a blazing fire, a great choice of meals, and a friendly unhurried atmosphere. I had the Cullen Skink, which was delicious, and my husband had lovely fresh battered haddock. With the stunning... More

Visited here for the 2nd time and enjoyed the atmosphere, had a beer by the fire listening to great music then ordered dinner.....what a let down. The chef/pyromaniac obviously enjoyed the art of flambe we could see the flames shooting from the pan. When the scallops arrived they were burnt black on the outside & raw in the middle, the...
