Went for dinner whilst working on the Islands. Nice food that was freshly cooked and served promptly. We were seated without a reservation but I would advise to book. I would return if back in Stornoway again.

Stopped for a quick drink to dodge the rain, welcoming, clean, reasonably priced. Didn't stop for food but looked nice. They had what looked like a very extensive ice cream selection too! Crayons and colouring kept my 2 year old entertained.
