Reviewed January 21, 2013

At last, someone who knows how to make a business thrive on Bute. This is a charming little village shop that sells more or less everything. Port Bannatyne used to have many shops but this excellent little shop has managed to cram more or less everything all those old shops sold into a small space. It is run a by a charming couple for whom nothing is too much trouble and their coffee is sublime. I heartily recommend.

This was our first stop after completing the West Island Way. We nipped in for a cuppa and some provisions. Friendly service. Its a quirky old fashioned shop/post office/cafe. I liked it so much I have a postcard of it framed on my kitchen wall.

Very friendly reception in what was a childhood haunt. Food was good and extremely good value for money. Comfortable table with good view of the bay.

This is a great little cafe/post office/general store on the water's edge. Be served an excellent range of teas and toasties inside or outside. The local people are very friendly and Janet and Pat ensure that your visit is a memorable one. Visit the Post Office just for the exceptional seaview as you relax and enjoy the tranquillity.

The girl that served us was very friendly and there was a great choice of sweets. Didn't use the post office but if the sweetie service was anything to go by, then they would have been great. Just need to get some sherbert pips in!
