                                                        Very very dissapointing. the food was very basic and very limited choice. For this to be a restaurant situated right on the west coast of Scotland, there was not even a proper catch of the day. in fact there was nothing really scottish about the place at all. Neither my wife or i enjoyed our meal, and would not recommend this place at all. We would never go back.

                                                        We enjoyed our meal and thank you for checking about dairy-free options - all was very tasty. A couple of small points: the cullen sink was very tasty but consisted mainly of potatoes, we had to hunt for the fish. The second small problem - the service was very slow after the main course both when ordering and then we had to chase the order. Overall it was a very pleasant meal, thank you.

                                                        We hadn't been back to the Inn for years, but we're delighted that it was still as good as ever. The decking area was brilliant, whilst midge-free! Very friendly staff, & our two friends loved it.

                                                        The atmosphere and service was second to none. The guys working were absolutely fantastic and nothing was too much to ask. Complete with fire and two lovely spaniels. What more could you ask? Oh and fantastic views! Oh and delicious food. Would definitely recommend. The pesto dressing on the salads is incredible as well. Yum! Thank you.

                                                        We have not visited the pub since COVID and read a few negative reviews. Lord knows what they’re on about, It is as good as it always has been! Food excellent. Bar staff jovial, locals welcoming and friendly. View as ever sublime! Good addition of the pizza van, although we didn’t try on this occasion as went for the fish and chips. Would recommend, just check opening times before you go as there is seasonal opening

                                                        Excellent food. Service very friendly but a bit slow when busy. Bar can be noisy but great you can take your dog 🐕. Will definitely go back.

                                                        Customer service was excellent: the guy behind the bar seemed to be in charge of everything & made it all look easy. He was welcoming & attentive. There was a new lunch menu on trial the day we went, I had steak salad, it was huge & meat was tender, the tub of dressing in the middle was a lovely touch. Ambiance was friendly, there was an open log fire at end of bar. Have already booked again, for dinner this time.

                                                        Disappointed that the menu had no seafood, it’s what I was looking for and why we chose to stay in Badachro

                                                        Great setting with wonderful views but the conservatory was cold and the lighting was too bright. Some heating, dimmed lights, candles and background music would make for a much more pleasant experience.

                                                        We had a really memorable meal at the Badachro Inn. All the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. There was plenty of choice in the menu and we both enjoyed our two courses. The fact that there was a large birthday party in progress, with live bagpipe music enhanced the experience. An evening we won’t forget in a hurry!
