Very accommodating and great food. Although it was very busy we didn't wait long and the wait we had was worth it. I recommend the Cullen Skink. The staff were great and very friendly.

Steak pie was very tender and meaty, fish was lovely and flakey, haggis very creamy tasting, great experience. Skye gold and Skye red beer are... More

Stopped here for lunch. Nice wee place. They don't supply high chairs though! Had to sit baby in her car seat on a chair. The waitress was pretty miserable. Not very friendly service! Food - lovely. Steak pie was really tasty!!

Awesome place for lunch! Service was good throughout our meal (whilst we were seated) & the staff were polite. food came out quickly! Only thing was we had to pay for our food at the bar and we waited about 5-10 minutes to be served so we could pay. Best fish we have had while travelling throughout America, UK &... More
