Our Head Chef, Scott Davies, and his brilliant kitchen brigade, create dishes which reflect Scotland’s traditional culinary heritage and wealth of ingredients. Restaurant Manager, Priscila Picon, assisted by Charlotte Poynton and their team, are here to welcome you and guide you through the menus. We have an excellent wine list selected by Sommelier, Petri Pentikäinen, who loves to suggest wines to match your choice of dishes.
Our restaurant has received a great deal of international acclaim over three decades, winning a host of awards and top accolades. We have held 3 AA red rosettes continuously for 16 years, plus awards for our wine list and outstanding customer service. We won a Michelin star for the first time in 2014. However, under a new Head Chef, both our Michelin and AA status will be reviewed in the near future. We will update this as soon as we know ourselves. However, we can assure our customers that the food will only get better!
Our menus reflect the outstanding variety of Skye’s authentic, natural larder from land and sea. The exceptional quality, true provenance and seasonal freshness of these local ingredients, is paramount to our business ethos and always has been since Eddie and Shirley Spear first opened the restaurant in 1985.
Opening Times The Restaurant is open every day throughout the summer. Lunch is served from 12.15pm with last orders taken at 2.00pm. Dinner is served from 6.15pm with last orders taken at 9.30pm. Reservations are essential and must be reconfirmed the day before your are due to dine with us, at the latest. Telephone 01470 511258.
Dress Code is smart casual. Gentlemen are not required to wear a jacket and tie, but vests and flip-flops may be regarded as inappropriate attire by fellow diners.
Children over 8 years old are very welcome to dine in the evenings. For family parties with very young children, we recommend booking at Lunchtime which is slightly more informal. We regret the Restaurant has limited space between tables and we cannot accommodate buggies and baby carriers. Please note, we do not have a specific children's menu, but will adapt dishes to suit younger tastes, if requested. A children's tea may be served in the House Over-By at 5.30pm for young children who are staying with us overnight.
Sample Menus for Lunch and Dinner can be found on the Menus page. If you any specific dietary requirements, please be sure to inform us when you contact us to reserve your table.
Dinner at our Kitchen Table is a not-to-be-missed experience for anyone visiting the Isle of Skye. The kitchen was designed to accommodate this rustic table and chairs within its own special area. There is no partitioning, glass, or otherwise, just the organised clutter of pots, pans and culinary equipment. You are seated with a great view and will soon become immersed in the whole tableau of our busy kitchen, watching the chefs in action throughout the evening. Sometimes you may be invited to participate in preparing or plating-up your own dishes and there will be plenty of opportunity to talk to the chefs.
The Kitchen Table can seat eight people as one party and can be reserved for exclusive use, or it may be shared with others. Please telephone us for more details and to discuss your requirements for a unique night out.
Our menu is our story! Fundamental to that belief is our extended team of Skye producers, growers, farmers, crofters, foragers, fishermen and divers. Virtually all of our ingredients are sourced fresh from within a few miles of the restaurant on Skye, followed by the Scottish Highlands and some wider sources throughout Scotland. The freshness and integrity of our ingredients fuels our passion for what we do.
Our local food suppliers reflect our food philosophy by sourcing and producing their exceptional ingredients and delivering them direct to our kitchen door. The collaborations we've undertaken have also helped our partners to develop their own small businesses over many years, something that gives us a great sense of pride within our rural community.
Reservations are always essential, so please book early to avoid disappointment, especially if it is a special occasion, or a once-in-a-lifetime visit to the Isle of Skye.
Please call us on +44 (0)1470 511258 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We take pride in helping our customers, so you can be sure we'll respond to your enquiry quickly. We will be delighted to provide you with further local advice about your journey and alternative places to stay nearby. We do need your contact details as all restaurant reservations must be confirmed a day or two before your arrival.
We are open for Lunch and Dinner every day throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. We close for Lunch on the occasional Sunday for staff training or essential maintenance. The business is closed to the public during the whole of December and part of January. During this time, the Office is open daily to accept reservations and enquiries. We begin serving Lunches from just before Easter weekend each year. Dinner is served every night from mid-January until the end of November. If you are in any doubt about the opening dates, please phone! .
Head Chef Scott Davies has recently taken over the reins at The Three Chimneys, with an enthusiastic new Brigade, all of whom aspire to continue the restaurant's successful story by taking it into a whole new era.
