We called at Kingarth Hotel a few times during our stay on Bute. First time, we had Roast Pork and Roast Lamb which was lovely. We called another day and had Chicken salad platter - which was huge but beautiful!! My hubby had the mussels which he said were gorgeous and big. Finally we called for a light snack on... More

Recently sailed into Kilchattan Bay and took a walk along to The Kingarth Hotel, about 25 mins along the coast and past the old school. After a stuttery start from the young barman the visit was a pleasure. A very well maintained and well decorated bar/restaurant area with lots of outside seating. We all quickly found something to eat from... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch in very pleasant surroundings. We both had the fish and it was very fresh and beautifully cooked. The staff were very attentive without being effusive. It had been recommended by a local and it was good.

We took a day trip to Bute with my parents, son and his girlfriend and several cousins, and came upon the Kingarth Hotel. It was a glorious day and we sat on the covered patio and had an amazing lunch. All of the meals were huge and could easily be shared, but they were so delicious that we stuffed in... More

I was stuck on Bute for a day on the Fly UK 2014 microlight rally. Owing to the bad weather 7 of us basically made this place our home for the day, living on the excellent ploughmans, soft drinks and free wifi all day checking the weather. Kev the barman even ran a couple of us into Rothesay for fuel... More

If you want to eat in the Kingarth Hotel it is advisable to book or eat early as we did. On a Wednesday night they were very busy. I had the scallops and chorizo starter. The scallops were served with the roe which I love and they must have been local as they were the tastiest scallops I have ever... More

We visited on 2 occasions. On the first, it was very busy but they managed to find us a table. We booked for the following evening! The staff were very friendly although the service was a little slow. The food, when it arrived, was excellent. I'd go back for the apple crumble alone!

Having previously stopped for a quick bite on a couple of occassions we thought we would try out some of the specials. I had the scallops to start and the steak and ale pie. My vegetarian partner had the goats cheese and onion chutney to start and the beer battered cod. The food clearly used high quality ingredients, was perfectly... More
