“Excellent staff, lovely food.”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Called in at Lunchtime for a drink and a bite to eat, the staff (Denise) was welcoming and chatty and made us feel at home. She was very knowledgeable about Cromarty and we will definitely be returning again.

Went in for dinner, food was quite tasty but we felt like we were a burden ordering.

Local Bingo night was on and a few of the old hags were clearly unimpressed with us taking their lucky seats.

The ugly decor of the pub is in direct contrast with the rest of Cromarty which is beautiful

Well worth a visit to this charming little pub with equally charming staff. The food was delicious, local and fresh and the service was second to none.
I totally disagree with the more negative reviews, I could not have been happier will everything overall.

Staying in area. We had some crab which was delicious, obviously caught recently and locally. We were offered lobster, equally fresh. I wish now we had taken some away. The beer, Happy Chappy from local micro brewery was excellent. The owners, staff and family were very friendly. We recommend a visit.

We went to the Cromarty Arms because we had done the touristy bit in that area. It was close to a lot of sites. My son had a steak done to perfection. He is a gormet cook, as a hobby, and he thought it was done to perfection. I had the scampi and enjoyed it, but what did I love? The friendly banter with the barmaid/ owner. It was fun. The pub was very quiet, but nice.

We were a bit apprehensive about visiting this pub due to the wide range of reviews it has been given. We like to make up our own minds anyway.
We arrived before 6pm and there was quite a few locals already there. Several of them left with carry-out meals. It's always a good sign when local people eat in pubs like this. The bar is spacious with loads of decent sized tables throughout. No trouble finding a seat here. There are more outside too if you prefer. Everything was lovely and clean. They had a locally brewed Real Ale called Happy Chappie. I drank it all night. A very decent brew. The total for our two drinks was 55p cheaper than .at the only other pub in the village, The Royal Hotel. Price isn't everything, I know. Unless we particularly wanted to impress a VIP, we'd choose the Cromarty Arms most of the time.
We were pleased to see "Mince & Tatties" on the Specials board. The owners wife told me that they sell lots of it. There is a lot to be said for a decent plate of Mince & Tatties. I fancied Fish & Chips and got a superb locally caught haddock done in a crisp beer batter. Exactly how is should be. LIz had the Half Chicken. She was unable to finish it and was pleasantly surprised when she was offered a doggie-bag because "it would be a shame to waste it".. We need more establishments to adopt the same policy.
The owner noticed a flickering light near our table and came across and changed it. "We can't have you sitting in a disco", he said.
One big TV showing a football game at one end of the bar, whilst another one at the far end was showing normal TV programmes you'd watch at home. Everybody is happy.
We'll certainly be back to the Cromarty Arms.. The entire village is wonderful. I promise you'll love it.
