Most holidaymakers who stay at the B&B often ask us to recommend places they can go to for dinner. We usually ask what their price range is and give them some options. Before the start of the tourist season, we like to try out as many as possible ourselves to ensure we get it right.
Last Saturday we had booking at a new dog friendly restaurant that opened recently, the Hebridean Inn at Harrapool, Broadford. We had heard good things about the food and decided to give it a try.
We were welcomed by the owner John Coghill who also happens to be an accomplished chef. Last year he worked at the Three Chimneys Restaurant in Colbost near Dunvegan, there gaining valued experience towards his journey setting up his own restaurant, with rooms. Prior to his stint at Three Chimneys he was general manager at the Sligachan Hotel, which has been owned by his family since 1928. Now going forward, with a varied background and a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry. John and his team are striving to achieve the best quality produce and services that they can offer and are committed to the long term development of the Hebridean Inn.
Anyone who knows Andy and I will know we have very high expectations where food is concerned. We had no need to worry on this occasion, the food we ordered was appetising and well presented and tasted delicious. Andy had the crab meat served with chopped apples, accompanied by salad, the crab was caught locally at Elgol. He then had the pulled lamb kebab which was equally good. I enjoyed the Ardbeg smoked haddock chowder and to follow venison casserole. We were both full after all this and really shouldn’t have had dessert but we felt obliged to try them.
There is a varied menu plus a childrens menu to choose from with something to suit everyone at affordable prices. We would highly recommend a meal at the Hebridean Inn there is a welcoming atmosphere, and the staff are very helpful and friendly, we are sure you won’t be disappointed.
