Tonight (Thursday May 30th) sees a general chance for people to gain an insight into the range of food and service to be available from the Harris and Lewis Smokehouse over the summer months.

The restaurant aims to make a name for itself from its skilfully designed location on Sandwick Road, Stornoway, on the site of what was once the local Royal Mail Sorting Office.

There was a taster event last week, of which they said: "Phil Sim, our Head Chef, and his team can demonstrate their passion for food to a small group of appreciative gourmand diners.  The taster menu will set the standards for our summer menu."

The restaurant will now be open three nights a week until 10pm - that's Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. There have been a series of developments in the interior layout of the restaurant and there will be further changes over the coming weeks.
