We had a beautiful meal in this beautiful restaurant in this quite little village of Newtonmore. The waitress was very attentive and our food was beautifully cooked and presented. We will certainly go back next time we visit.

Had dinner here. The place is very quiet. Good menu, even though a little abuse of sauces (but that is part of the regional tradition). Very friendly service. If you are around, it deserves a try.

A small restaurant in the middle of Newtonmore, where we have just had a delicious meal, made with fresh ingredients and fantastic flavours. Really something special in this small village, in a larger town this restaurant would be available only by booking well in advance....More

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.
