A great two night stay at Kilberry, David was the host with the most as always and gave us a warm return welcome on our arrival on Tuesday afternoon, showing us to our room "Arran". Meals on both nights were fantastic and as normal we were spoilt for choice, the Queen scallops for starters and Barnsley chop for main were superb and being originally from Barnsley and having had the original Barnsley chop I should know :-), the meal finished off with a fine red wine. Breakfast on both days fantastic a full breakfast on Wednesday and the salmon and scrambled eggs on Thursday, the best fresh smoked salmon we've ever had!
It's a true reflection of a place and its reputation when mid week in the middle of September, with the nearest population 12 miles away on a single track road that it is full with locals having a meal. The atmosphere is welcoming and David is obliging as ever and will try and satisfy your every need if he can as long as you are prepared to suffer his dry humour.
So to those few critics below, clearly the Kilberry is not the place for you and you're probably more used to the local large chain pub with the cheap beer and microwave food where I'm sure you'll be more at home and let us that appreciate quality, good food, good accommodation and genuine friendly service continue to enjoy this gem. And it really doesn't matter whether you've got an Audi or a Focus you'll get the same friendly welcome and hospitality regardless
