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.

Another lovely meal at the Kingarth last weekend. Food lovely as usual and nice atmosphere. However when you arrive they have balsamic vinegar and olive oil waiting on the table but it is a lottery whether they remember to bring you the bread to go with it! In the room we were in there were eight tables - 5 got... More

We stayed in Bute for a week and once we found the Kingarth we visited at least three times during our stay! This is the sort of place that will appeal to all ages, a really friendly family run pub/ restaurant with a beautiful log fire, a good choice of drinks, and lovely and clean bathrooms. The food menu is... More

Well cooked delicious food which doesn't break the bank, also there's a good choice on the menu. The atmosphere is pleasant, not too noisy and the surrounding countryside is superb.

After a long walk with our dog the pub was the perfect place for a warm welcome, a wee dram and a hearty meal. The food was great, only reason it's a 4 from me is as a veggie there wasn't a choice of mains but what we had was delicious. What makes this place is the warm welcome from... More
