Went for dinner as they had a wee deal on sadly the quality and quantity aint the same as the normal menu. Ok fair enough but the place was like an ice box a sure sign that corners are being cut, add to that some dismal background music over tinny speakers and you have the atmosphere sucked right out of...

Second attempt for lunch, the first time we left as they didn't cater for vegetarians. This time we waited over an hour after placing our orders, the meal was poor quality I'm afraid we will definitely NOT be back!

Very nice b&b in Carnoustie, at the main floor pub and bar with breakfast room and a beer garden outside. Quite large parking. The double room we booked was nice and small, with tv shower ok bed (made by 2single mattresses) Lovely scottish breakfast in the morning, possibility of dining all day

Checked into the hotel around 18.45 on a very wet coldish day, as soon as we checked in we were taken to room 3, overlooking the main road. We were soaked and therefore asked if we can put the heating on, yes we were told so I bent down on the floor under the dressing table and I switched on... More

Enjoyed our brief stay Excellent food. Unlike one of your other contributers I had the best fish and chips I've tasted in a very long time ! Perfect crispy batter. Perfectly cooked fresh haddock. Bedroom was in need of upgrading but was clean and comfortable.

Very limited menu, nothing for vegetarian disappointed the previous menu was very good, had to leave and go elsewhere!! The previous menu that they had was very good with a choice for vegetarians, maybe they are using this limited menu until they get a more extensive one?

If you combine the two, it is actually the same size as our previous menu, we feel this is more than enough for a pub menu. Our... More

A pleasant hotel, restaurant and bar. Prices were very good , wide selection of beers, and a limited menu (probably due to the fact that they were newly opened. One of the nicest bars in Carnoustie. Would recommend this hotel.

Went to the Kinloch Arms during a 3 night stay in Carnoustie for the Commonwealth Games, found the staff helpful and service prompt despite them being fairly busy, potatoes skins for starters could have been seasoned better but Chicken ceaser Salad was full of flavor and portion was generous, nice lively atmosphere helped make this a pleasant experience and would...
