Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the service was a bit slow. We will keep this under review. We have Swannay Brewery Muckle IPA on tap and a wide selection of bottled beers from the Swannay and Orkney Breweries.

The restaurant was a good size and the food was very good,Orkney beef is deservedly of good quality and the menu reflected this.The whiskys on Orkney are good but expensive,but that is down to the new Scottish government legislation.which is a shame.Good service and prompt.TIP. Restaurants in Stromness are limited in number and can fill very quickly so it would be wise to reserve a table .

We arrived on spec to see if we could get a table to find that the lounge was fully booked. Managed to get a table in the bar. Food was excellent, Moira and Emma ensured that we were well looked after and even kept a table in the lounge free until they had checked if we wanted to move.
