Eating out

There are several places to eat out but it is best to check timetables out of season and advised to book in the busy summer months.

The Badachro Inn

Badachro Inn

This is one of our favourite spots. Fabulous location overlooking the sea with a warm and friendly atmosphere.  You can go here alone and feel relaxed or turn up with a bunch of children and dogs and feel equally welcome. Lunches and dinner served. Open all winter but on restricted days.
