The reason for our "expedition" to the Outer Hebrides this past summer (August) was to visit as many of the ancient, megalithic sites as paossible, from Barra to Lewis. When in my research of South Uist sites I came upon the Pollacher Standing Stone in close proximity to the Polochar Inn I knew we were in for a special treat. My wife and I visited the standing stone earlier in the day, so when Rosemary, our host at our B&B, offered to book us a table at the hotel for dinner we were excited that we would get to see the stone in evening light also. But, what about the restaurant and the food? The dining room includes a small bar. The real pub is in another room. For those of us who prefer eating in a quieter atmosphere the dining room is best. The menu was varied and it took some time to decide on our dinners. I ended up choosing the chicken breast over veggies and Mary had the salmon. Both entrees were very good and we certainly did not leave the table hungry. An extra special pleasure for me was that a bottle of Innis & Gunn Original Ale was available from the bar. The view of the sea, past the carpark (with the perky sheep dog), was great!!!

I arranged in advance for a large group to eat here, and we pre -ordered 3 course meals. The group were mostly from abroad and Karen took this into account and arranged a very nice selection which included local fish, scallops, haggis, and black pudding, also Sticky Toffee Pudding dessert. A well thought out menu. Much appreciated. The food was lovely, but despite pre ordering, one main course didn't turn up, or was given to wrong person, meaning one of our group had to wait for his main course. The desserts we had pre- ordered, one of those choices, strawberry cheesecake was no longer on the menu, which was disappointing for those who had ordered it. However the Rhubarb Crumble served in it's place, with individual jugs of custard was enjoyed by those who had it.Generally, we enjoyed the meal, and the work Karen put into planning the menu before we arrived was appreciatedThe staff were friendly.Ceilidh music was also provided especially for us by Callum.

Had a meal here when staying self catering on the island. Service was O.K. but food felt expensive for what we got but nothing was outstanding. Hotel felt a bit lacking in atmosphere but might be better if staying here. Very quiet when we were in but not much choice locally, unless you want to travel but there are other places within a few miles.
