The food here is delicious, we were staying closeby. I will not hesitate to return.

From the moment we came through the door until we left was simply 1st class. We were a party of 8 and the service and food was one on the best ever tasted. The restaurant is gorgeous and our boys loved watching the train from mallaig to glasgow passing through.

I happened to notice that the owner/s greeted each diner individually and I have never seen that before, again a special touch.

Also, during our meal the chef came through asking if our meal was fine, we replied lovely and he said "Your more than welcome" I have never had that service from a chef before.

The food was amazing, we all had something different ,and my parents told me on the way back to our cottage "that was the best meal and service I've had in a very long time".

Thank you very much.

After our first day walking the Great Glen we planned a quiet evening but ended up having a great night out.

The food, hospitality and service was very good.

After dinner we retired to the comfortable lounge/bar with its real fire, finished our wine and had a few beers (and whiskies!) while other dinner guests played guitar and sang. It was a lovely, relaxed evening and we felt very welcome. Would recommend the restaurant to anyone passing that way (even if you are walking 12 miles the next day).

We were a party of five & nothing was too much trouble. The food was fabulous - plenty of it & cooked to perfection. We ate there twice & between us we sampled a fair few items off the menu - every one of us enjoyed our meal but I think the empty plates said it all really! The desserts were also delicious. The staff were attentive & friendly without being intrusive. We will definitely eat there again when we're next in Scotland. Obviously a very popular place & would recommend booking a table rather than just turning up.

Our dining experience here seems to be light years away from other reviewers. We found the menu dull & old fashioned & the food arrived so quickly that we were in & out in under 45mins! I had the vegetarion option of the day- risotto - how can anyone make a risotto with long grain rice? The starter portions were small-3 garlic mushrooms-not value for around £5. The best part was the quirky location

Very pleasant experience. Restaurant has a varied menu and a great bar. Food and service were excellent, probably my best meal in two weeks in Scotland. Atmosphere is delightfully rustic ... perfect for its country setting. Staff seemed genuinely interested in providing a nice experience. And yes, it is a working railway station, you will see trains come and go.
