When in Beauly we always visit Corner on the Square for food. Today we departed from that and decided to give the Old Schoolhouse a try out. Big mistake! On entering we joined a small queue in the corridor leading to the cafe entrance and mixing with the toilet queue. The staff member told us they were busy and offered a table in the " heated and covered" patio area which was "quieter". Well that was true as it consists of a small tired tent type structure not dissimilar to a caravan awning and erected on the lock block formerly part of te car park. Three cheap metal tables (ours dirty) with cold metal chairs,one table occupied by a miserable cold looking couple. A smelly noisy industrial type heater in the corner completed the sad and austere atmosphere. So we sat and waited then waited a bit more. Ten minutes passed and no sign of a waitress or even a menu. Enough. On exiting through the cafe ( with empty tables) a staff member asked if they could help us. Well yes you can, do you know the cure for hypothermia and inhalation of noxious fumes? Thought not said. We said no thanks and left. Straight to warm Corner on the Square and seated and served quickly and pleasantly. Seriously Old Schoolhouse a truly abysmal experience and not a chance of ever repeating it. I have no idea how good your food is and I will never find out. So if you are visiting and offered the " patio area" decline and go elsewhere.
