View Full Version : Schoolhouse Restaurant John O' Groats

Had yet another beautiful, totally home-cooked meal there today with my Dad.

They take such attention to detail; giving us a huge jug of water without having to ask for it and when I ordered a coffee it came in a cafeteirre (sp?) which I love, and also with a choice of cream or milk and brown or white sugar, again I never asked for these choices - it was automatic !

Really nice, soft background music and a lovely fire going in the original schoolhouse grate - though it was a relatively warm day, the heat from the fire was just perfect.

Thoroughly recommend this establishment !!

Take the road towards Duncansby Head.
It is just off on the right a little way up, looking surprisingly like an old schoolhouse.

Book in advance- it isn't open all day so a call ahead is a wise idea

Have been with family and friends a couple of times and I have to agree with all the praise given for both quality and service.
