Fresh ingredients cooked to a high standard resulting in an excellent combination. Found it difficult to choose from the short but varied menu. Very pleasant staff. We're just in Newtonmore for one night otherwise we'd be back to the Letterbox tomorrow. Definitely recommended.

Ok food, but not great. The vegetables they served were especially unimaginative. I don't think it's that hard to make vegetables taste great, but they certainly didn't manage. Also, as others have said, it was very cold in the restaurant!

This is an unpretentious little place. It doesn't look much but the food was excellent. I had local caught scallops followed by salmon and crab - delicious. There is a decent wine-list. Louise was running the front-of-house show and did a fantastic job.
