We can recommend:
Sutor Creek – this is a favourite of ours. Situated by the harbour in the historic town of Cromarty at the tip of the Black Isle, it is a relaxed family restaurant offering Scottish seafood, seasonal menus and wood-fired pizzas. Cyclists welcome.
Couper’s Creek – Sutor Creek’s wee sister, also in Cromarty, offering lunches, hot and cold drinks, ice-cream and gifts. Many of the cakes are gluten free.
The Anderson – another favourite. Located in Fortrose on the Black Isle, The Anderson offers ‘borderless’ menus created from the abundant produce of Scotland. It has one of the finest selection of drinkables in Britain and was awarded CAMRA Pub of the Year 2007 and 2008. It features more than 240 single-malt whiskies, many of which are hard-to-find without being hard-to-afford and their collection of over 120 Belgian beers is the largest in Scotland.
Eilean Dubh Restaurant – serves good food sourced from their own farm and other Black Isle producers.
The Storehouse of Foulis – a self-service restaurant offering fresh food and fresh flavours based on local produce. They do breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.
Corner on the Square – a licensed delicatessen and eaterie overlooking the square in the historic village of Beauly. Cyclists welcome.
If you like an Indian takeaway, Gabi’s Tandoori in Avoch is the place to go.
Allangrange Arms – just a couple of miles along the road in Munlochy, serving gourmet pub food.
Close by, but not tried and tested (yet!):
Station Hotel – a small, family run hotel situated in the scenic fishing village of Avoch, offering good quality, homemade pub and bistro style food.
