This was a second visit for us as we were so impressed the first time. Made the trip specially for a birthday lunch and were delighted once again. Innovative, clever, tasty, individual, surprising flavours and textures, use of leaves, flowers, locally sourced ingredients...it's all here....More

Eat here during a week long stay food is amazing incredible value and you can buy amazing sourdough bread and home made jams to take away. If inver was in Glasgow or edinburgh it would have a Michelin star well worth the drive

We had a lovely meal, the food was perfect (although if I'm ordering from a menu I don't think the food needs to be announced....yes that is what I ordered🤷‍♀️) We did enjoy the overall experience but felt it could be more relaxed.
