On New Years Day AND the 2nd of January, the bar is closed all day for food and drinks (we like to enjoy it too!). Otherwise normal service applies. 

Dining Reservations

Bookings (6 people or less)

We do not normally accept group bookings for dining for less than 6 people. Instead, if we are busy in the bar/dining area, non-resident, dining customers are seated in turn. Residents are automatically reserved a table for dinner. If we are busy our friendly staff will help you with a table. Please be advised that the Inn can get very busy during the peak season. So, if you are flexible with your dining times it may be better to avoid peak lunch and dinner times.

Group Bookings ( 6 people or more)

We encourage larger groups, for 6 or more people, to book ahead for dining to ensure we can fit you in. Bookings for these larger groups are on 2 hourly intervals so 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm or 8pm all day every day, during the peak season. Reserved tables are only held for 15 minutes so please let us know if you are going to be late.

Food and Drink Provenance

Here at the Inn we aim to source our quality ingredients for our dishes as locally as is viable, or at the very least try and remain Scottish! To help achieve this we are favoured by our beautiful seaside location and great range of local suppliers. We are however sometimes hindered by our remoteness! Other factors such as seasonality and the weather can affect what we have on offer but we endeavour to offer alternatives when possible. To accompany our delicious local food we try and stay Scottish with our drinks too!

For more information please refer to our Food and Drink Provenance Map and Statement.
