Lovely meal but not much choice for veggies! friendly staff and a really nice atmosphere. I'm told by my friend who ate with us that the non-veggie food was fab too!

Just spent a few days on Bute and visited the Kingarth for lunch. We weren't disappointed! The food was delicious, a very varied menu and great service. It's very relaxed and after lunch we stayed on for a few drinks. Two middle aged couples, one stayed sober for the drive back! We'll be back!

Lovely restaurant with good service along with a good range of food. Felt pricing was a bit overpriced.
