The Good Food Guide Local Restaurant of the Year Scotland, 2017

Highlands and Islands Restaurant of the Year, 2017, finalist 2018

Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, 2013-2018

Conde Nast Traveller, December 2014

"Jane Stuart-Smith and Sarah Jones started a restaurant in Lochaline close to the water, and named The Whitehouse. Mike Burgoyne and Lee Myers have very impressive experience in London. Head chef Burgoyne has worked at The Savoy, Claridge's Cafe Royal and Chez Nico.


" An outstanding restaurant has emerged. It is a surprise to find a menu this good in a village on the edge of the known world, serving the finest plaice, beef, scallops, bouillabaisse, langoustines and wonderful puddings. I made a note of what we ate one night: ravioli pillows with a lobster sauce; whole, spankingly fresh plaice; wild salmon; "beastie" (which turned out to be beef) and a sensational panna cotta. There were also sorbets of blackcurrents and blaeberries, known south of the boarder as biberries."

The Good Food Guide Scottish Local Restaurant of the Year, 2017

"... a kitchen that cooks fresh to order is the very principle on which our guide was founded. First class food cooked with ingredients deeply rooted in the region. A commitment to their community and a strong relationship with local suppliers is what makes their restaurant truly local.

"Mike Burgoyne is a skilled chef using fabulous ingredients serving them beautifully but with bags of enthusiasm and fun.


"Why aren't there more places like this?"

Michelin Guide, 2019


"Unassuming restaurant decorated with nautical memorabilia.  A blackboard lists 6 constantly evolving  dishes....dishes are accomplished and beautifully presented, ingredients are from the surrounding estates and coasts "

"Arguably the best reason to visit Morvern, this is one of the Highlands finest restaurants. Simple style belies outstanding modern European cooking that showcases local meat and seafood."
