Come and join us for a home-made meal in our bright conservatory, dine alfresco in the pretty garden on a summer day, or sip a sociable drink by the cosy log-burner on a chilly evening.
We happily host the locals who gather in our friendly, family-run bar and restaurant to eat, drink and be merry, but we also love welcoming visitors to our quaint village of Maryburgh, just south of the Highland town of Dingwall in northern Scotland.
Our home is also our business, and we treat our customers like our personal guests – even their dogs, who are welcome too.
If you’re planning a special occasion – perhaps a landmark birthday or anniversary celebration, even a work event – we’ve got a lovely function room which can accommodate up to 60 people. Parking is no problem – we’ve got loads of space on site.
We’re always on the lookout for a reason to have a party, including Hogmanay and Burns Night. We announce our special events on social media and written up on in-house blackboards (that also give notice of the daily menu).
Our cuisine is best described as homecooked traditional pub food, but there’s a definite Scottish twist added by our excellent chef.
Ingredients are locally sourced, and we get rave reviews – particularly for our sumptuous Sunday roasts.
We may be a bit off the beaten track when it comes to the highways and byways of the Highlands, but we’re certainly on the map – or should that be “app”? The Cottage Bar is officially listed as a great place to stop and relax if you’re exploring the famed and very popular North Coast 500 tourist road route.
The nearby town of Dingwall is on the NC500 route, so it takes but a little detour to discover Maryburgh and our travellers’ rest, which is open seven days a week for lunch or dinner.
Our village is a lovely little sanctuary, on the northern bank of the River Conon – a settlement created originally around 1815 to house displaced crofters from the Highland Clearances. It’s a small, close-knit community which we are pleased to play an active role in.
