We stopped in here for a coffee break and that was all we had time for. The place looked nice and as we were on a bus tour had to queue for coffee and those who wanted a latte had to wait till everyone was served before them. Attached is a pic of menu. They had a nice courtyard too... More

Much more than pub food here. We had one of the share platters. Great for lunch. friendly staff and efficient service. For a place located "out of the way" it does a great job. We were there on Saturday for lunch and there were plenty of visitors. Servings were large and looked good. Would definitely return

Stopped here by chance after a morning visit to the lovely St Blane's Chapel. Great experience from start to finish, friendly and efficient staff, good menu choice with lovely fresh, quality produce. Highly recommended.

Even though their is a "lighter options" choice, they will also serve starter portions as a main course for people in the party with smaller appetites. The scallops are very... More

Have had many meals in Kingarth Hotel on our visits, usually during the week, and have never had cause to complain. The food has always been good with lots of specials on the blackboard. For the non-driver there is an extensive variety of whiskies and now there is the option of tasting the locally brewed beer. Pity I am the... More

We had Sunday lunch at the restaurant during a weekend visit. Service was o.k. and food was 'so so'. Best part about it was the atmosphere, relaxing with live music. Wouldn't return for the food but to enjoy a drink in the bar area.
