    Default best food in Caithness?

    Who serves the best food (or best value food) - there are some good eateries now such as Bord L'eau in Wick, the Seafood place at Scrabster, who likes what?

    We had a cracking meal at the Weigh Inn the other night - two courses, large portions, a coupla pints and coffees for 22 - not bad IMHO

    Mackay's hotel/Ebenezers in Wick is lovely for a meal, a bit expensive for an evening meal but the lunch menu is cheaper and the food is just out of this world - i've never found place to complain yet!

    Went to ulbster arms the other day and had a lovely meal, melt in the mouth and good prices.
    also like the central, upper deck and eh silver darlings does some good stuff aswell.
    went to portlands the other day and wasnt all that keen, not enough for the money that was paid, nice service but just not enough food on the plate for me.

    The Station Hotel in Thurso is great.

    Prices dearer now since they refurbished but food is still very good.

    We went to the Portland Arms at Lybster last week - FANTASTIC food, a little bit pricey - but worth every penny!

    I go to the Portlands regularly and the food is always excellent, as is the service, cant say I find it pricey unless you are comparing it to pub grub. Never have had cause to complain at all

    I have to agree with Johndy, the food in the St Clair or Thurso Town Lodge as it's going to be called is second to none.

    The new owners Helen and Jerry will make the hotel great again, just like they did with the Portlands. Good food and a nice relaxing atmosphere.
