We stopped here for an evening meal on our way around the Black Isle. The landlady made us most welcome from the moment we stepped in the door and was really friendly throughout. Half our party ordered starters and half didn't. This wasn't a problem. Those who had starters really enjoyed the high quality food served by a friendly member of staff. They were super big portions. The mains all came at the same time, 3 off the extensive specials boards and one off the standard menu. They were all fantastic, of excellent quality, good presentation, and clearly all using high quality ingredients. I even got a prize (a lollipop) for the cleanest plate the landlady had ever seen - well, it was the best risotto I've had this side of Millan!
We shared some of the puddings (again massive portions) and even though it was quite late and we were the only ones left in the restaurant the puddings were up to the same high standard as the other courses.
Also a good wine list and the beer comes recommended too.
There is a good selection of interesting photos around the walls and some interesting old maps which we enjoyed looking at whilst listening to others in the bar having a good time before hitting the road again.
All in all a lovely place with great landlady and staff who made our evening very enjoyable. I am sure we will be back one day.
