The Belgrave Arms Bel-Grill Restaurant
Ranked #6 of 9 Restaurants in Helmsdale
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Granted it was a busy night in Helmsdale but the owner / burger flipper was hopelessly out of his depth. He rejected us, a group of 40/50 somethings for swearing (which we didn't) by swearing himself.
The young girl attempting to serve us was clearly a newish start but was infinitly more professional than Gordon Pansy.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on trip advisor, You know you was in the wrong, you wasnt ask to leave because you was swearing you was was ask to keep the noise down in the restaurant as you was disturbing the other diners. when the burger flipper / owner turned to walk away, you then proceed to be abusive about him, that was why you was asked to leave. however you fail to comment that you spent the rest of the evening drinking in the bar without any conflict from the hotel.

The meals are delicious. Hot, tasty, made to order. Desserts are wonderful, too. No complaints. Serving staff is friendly, but not annoying. Dining room is attractively decorated.

Being so close to the sea its not surprising how fresh the seafood here is. It was the best ive had in a long time and my daughter enjoyed the kids meal that was prepared for her

We stayed in the village for a week and enjoyed a couple of meals in the dining room and cold drinks in the beer garden which bosts a lovely view of the harbour and Emigrants statue. The food itself was nice and the staff friendly and welcoming but the jewel in this place's crown is definately the seafood platters. Generous portions of mussels, lobster, crab, and langastines, all fresh from the sea, well cooked and served with a delicious lemon and garlic dip and perfectly roasted potatoes. If we are ever in the area again, we will definately return.

We stayed in Helmsdale for three nights. First night we ate in the Belgrave Arms Restaurant. We were a little concerned when we entered the restaurant and found ourselves alone in the dining room. Several tables were filled by the time we left. Atmosphere not exciting or even attractive. Very pleasant waiter - had a nice chat with him. The meal was adequate, nothing to write home about -- that was two weeks ago and I cannot even remember what my wife or I had to eat. There's a better place to go in town.
