The origins of Kishorn Seafood Bar .....

Viv Rollo, the founder of the business, says:-

"Whilst living in Lochinver, a major white fish port in the 1970's, I was struck by the difficulty of actually being able to buy local fish. Ever since then it was always in the back of my mind to exploit this fantastic local resource. I never really thought my dream would become a reality. However in 1992 the opportunity arose and Kishorn Seafood & Snack Bar opened in a disused filling station about 100 metres from the present location. Although the premises were tiny, we soon established a reputation for good seafood and snacks. In October 1994 the business closed as the building was due for demolition."The present building opened in April 1996 as Kishorn Seafood Bar, with a stunning view over the sea to Skye.

 

"The present building opened in April 1996 as Kishorn Seafood Bar, with a stunning view over the sea to Skye (on a clear day). Since then, the menu, premises, and procedures have developed."

"We gave the building a complete facelift in 2011 to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. In 1999 we achieved the Investors In People standard and again in 2001. In 2000 we purchased a lobster tank, which has proved very useful, and we also became licensed around the same period."

We gave the building a complete facelift in 2011 to celebrate our 15th Anniversary.

"The emphasis is very much on local shellfish; with Prawns, Crab and Squat Lobster from Loch Kishorn; Mussels and Oysters from Skye and King Scallops, Lobster, Smoked Salmon and Fresh Salmon also obtained locally. These are all simply cooked and served along Spanish lines."

The premises are open plan so customers can watch and talk to us, as their meal is prepared. Our ethos and aim is to provide a clean, pleasant, unpretentious, friendly Scottish environment. We have strived to achieve this over the past 18 seasons. A very large proportion of our customers visit us again, often for our Garlic Scallops or to indulge in our Seafood Platter.
