I love a good road trip as you don’t know where you’ll end up eating and what special places you will find. The Mustard Seed is a special find. Opened in 1995 in an old church building you will enjoy the surroundings. As soon as you walk in you will be hit with the warmth & homely smell of an open log fire. The lights were set low and the flickering of light lit the interesting collection of toys from the childhood of the owners and their children. Despite the space being a disused church with double-height ceilings you won’t feel cold especially with the welcome we received from the knowledgeable and accommodating staff, especially Katija.
There were 2 of us and my partner wasn’t hungry so we decided to split one starter and one main which was not an issue for the restaurant.
Our main was the venison pictured which was cooked beautifully, allowing it to melt in the mouth with every bite. The red wine jus and celeriac puree balanced the richness with of the earthiness of the venison. The dish was well constructed making a perfect portion.
The menu changes every few weeks to reflect the produce that is available locally.
This was a lovely restaurant on the banks of the River Ness with wonderful staff & a seasonal menu which will cater to all.
