Fresh crab with 'petite salade' (certainly sounds better than 'small'), which was a blackboard starter, comprised our bar lunch on an impromptu visit, en route to Ullapool. It was the real thing and the bottle of low alcohol 'Nanny State' ale was good too. Pleasant...More

We only had lunch in the bar this time but it was very average and a little disappointing - but as we are vegetarian the options are more limited. I guess that with the season over things slow down a bit.
