Our story so far...
In 2018, the doors of IV10 opened to a warm welcome from Highland foodies who enthusiastically embraced our new cafe, bar, deli situated in the village of Fortrose on the Black Isle.
Returning to Scotland after living and working across the world, we have created a place to suit anyone, no matter what your dietary needs, who enjoys tasty, uncomplicated food, made with love and respect, served in a welcoming atmosphere by people who care.
Our doors open at 10am and we serve food all day. Our menu is written daily, our food doesn't follow any particular style, instead we allow ourselves to be influenced by the seasons and the fresh produce they bring. Our plates are ideal for sharing, it's positively encouraged creating a casual, sociable dining experience. In addition to our menu we have our sweet and savoury deli counters, highlighting our in house baking. From wonderful scotch eggs and pies to decadent brownies and lemon tarts and a considered selection of local and European cheese and charcuterie. If you don't have time to sit down and join us, everything is available to takeaway.
Our coffee is roasted locally in Cromarty here on the Black Isle by Vandyke Bros Speciallity Coffee and our wines are sourced by WoodWinters sharing their knowledge of great wines, all of which we serve by the glass allowing you to taste something a wee bit different. We support both Black Isle Brewery and Cromarty Brewery offering an exceptional selection of award winning beers. If you want to shake things up a bit and treat yourselves then our cocktail list can do just that. We also pride ourselves in a great selection of non-alcholic drinks from award winning alcohol free beer to funky kombuchas and mocktails.
Keeping IV10 cosy, the wood-fired oven at the heart of the kitchen is where most of the cooking goes on including our authentic hand made pizzas which are baked to order. During the summer the secluded garden tucked away behind the building is perfect for a long lunch and is dog-friendly and our outdoor heated bothies are perfectly snug after a winter walk, especially with a hot mulled apple juice to warm you through.
Allowing you to take a little of IV10 with you, the deli shop offers a range of goodies, wine, beer and spirits to buy.
With an exceptional team of experienced chefs and knowledgable staff, IV10 has quickly established itself as a vibrant hub of the community and a go-to destination for visitors to the area.
We look forward to welcoming you to IV10,
Emma, Keith, Morag and Team IV10
