We’ve taken the favourites and slapped some irresistible flair into them like our ridiculous Classic Burger loaded with beef, pulled pork, bacon AND cheddar! Our core menu has a little something-something for everyone including a herby fish and chips, a buckwheat and highland kimchi poke-bowl for the vegans and if you’re looking for something a little snackier try our chimichurri beef sandwich with sweet little piquant peppers. Into something a little more laid back? We’ve got picking platters designed for those lazy days nibbling in the sun.


Mix it up with one of our cocktail pitchers in the garden and that sounds like good vibes to us. Bevvin with the boys? We’ve got you covered. Come to our Highland beer & burger night on a Wednesday and get your fill. Or if you feel like a bit of fun we have themed Thursdays - it changes every week, from curry night to Korean, 70s to samba, there’s even a rumour of a Barnum and Bailey style affair…


As we’re right next to the sea we’ve sent our chefs out onto the waves to haul in the catch of the day for our Seafood Fridays. The freshest fish you can find straight off the boat, chefs selection of tempting seafood delights including lobster, langoustine, oysters and scallops. We’ve even got a pint of prawns! With a tightly packed and exciting line up of live music on Saturdays we’ve got a true Scottish hoolie ready to go in the evening - plenty of space in our garden to get that sporran swinging. Come and have a little Highland fling with us. On Sundays the carving knife comes out and we have the most succulent sirloin roast, meltingly soft and hot with all the trimmings that will leave you feeling satisfied. With our sharing roast you can choose your own sides - double helping of yorkie puds? Extra gravy? We like your style.
