We are delighted to announce the opening of The Northern Point, our brand new cafe and restaurant. Located in John O'Groats, the most northerly point of the UK mainland, the cafe offers fantastic views across the Pentland Firth to the Orkney Islands. You can relax by a roaring log fire as you browse our carefully crafted menu, which is full of locally-sourced, seasonal produce. The Northern Point is a natural extension of our catering service based in the Cairngorms and builds on our commitment to blending high-quality, sustainable food with excellent customer service. 

Our story goes right back to our schooldays together in the Cairngorms, but our catering journey began through our shared passion for 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 dining. We are excited to begin the next chapter of our story here at The Northern Point.

Thank you for your custom and enjoy your time in the cafe!

Sam, Dougal & The Team.

Hello everyone, we hope you are all safe and well!

Well, what a year it has been... 

When we first went into lockdown, we stayed positive and adapted well, providing fresh and locally sourced takeaway style meals throughout the Highlands and most importantly the elderly, who were in isolation during this tough time. In June, we moved in to our brand new HQ in Newtonmore which has been a fantastic step for us and has provided us with a perfect base to expand our services and team, all whilst maintaining our extremely high standards. 

When lockdown lifted on 15th July, we were extremely busy with Private Catering and within the blink of an eye, we are in November! It has been a crazy few months, we have had the pleasure of catering for some fantastic groups and catering for small Weddings. Some of the highlights include partnering with the incredible Achnagairn Estate and Bogbain Farm, catering for the cast and crew from the hit Sky One show "League of their Own", meeting all our couples for private Wedding Tastings who have booked with us for 2021, adding to our excellent team of Chef's and front of house and much more!

We are extremely busy over the festive period with Private Catering bookings and COVID friendly weddings, we are also launching our Christmas Hampers which will provide great gifts for loved ones, the hampers also tie in to our mission of getting as many local businesses on board as possible and taking them on this journey with us.

We would like to thank you for your continued support, you can keep up to date with what we are up to on our social media @thelunchboxboys, our availability for 2021 is extremely limited and we cannot wait to provide more local food made with passion alongside excellent customer service  next year!

Sam, Dougal and the team, The Lunchbox Boys.
