My partner ordered the chicken that was nice but a very small serving. I had the fish and chips which was pleasant but a tad underwhelming. The staff and service were good. Toffee sauce on dessert tasted a little burnt.

If you follow for A96 for Inverness then the A9 to Thurso. This would take you to us although this is about a 4.5-5hr journey from Aberdeen. Hope this helps. Best Regards Brian
