Dining at John O'Groats
Together Travel are excited to announce the arrival of The Northern Point (brainchild of the homegrown Lunchbox Boys), replacing 'The Storehouse' as a NEW spot to grab a delicious lunch or coffee, overlooking the Pentland Firth! Having opened their doors in early 2021, we spoke to the guys to find out more and what our guests at John O'Groats can look forward to...
"Our story goes right back to our schooldays together in the Cairngorms, but our catering journey began through our shared passion for creating locally sourced, tasty and healthy food. When demand for our lunchtime delivery service soared, The Lunchbox Boys was born, and our passion became our business. Today, we offer a wide range of catering services including weddings, corporate events and private family dining. At the heart of our business, lies a commitment to producing high-quality, sustainable food with excellent customer service. We are excited to begin the next chapter of our story here at The Northern Point in John O'Groats. Thank you for your valuable custom and enjoy your time in the cafe!" - Sam, Dougal & The Team
