Living near this great little inn, I frequent it for meals pretty often. All their food is freshly prepared and while it may take a little longer than fast food, it is well worth the wait.

This was an unexpected trip out with my partner. The service was excellent and so too was the food. A friendly atmosphere has been created and as a result we will definately be back.

We stayed for one night, the previous night we stayed in Glasgow in a 4* hotel, spa and swimming pool etc for £55 a night.

Went to Ballantrae shore front to walk our dog and spotted this hotel with restaurant and bar/lounge.

We picked this hotel after researching Trip Advisor for a good place to stay, before catching the ferry to Northern Ireland. We certainly weren't disappointed, Brian, the Landlord, could not have been more helpful and friendly. The room,no.5, was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated in a tradional style. We had a drink in the sun in the lovely beer... More

A Britstop overnighter on the road from Arran to the Isle of Whithorn. We were welcomed warmly by the staff and directed to a level corner of the carpark. We went in to the pub for a meal and it was nice to order over a drink in the bar before being shown to the dining room to eat. The... More

As part of a group of 6 who don't like to drive to pubs when away usually pick one local and stick to it unless there is a reason not too. The Kings Arms is the only venue in the village and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the super service we had from... More
