“Busy local hotel restaurant...”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The bar has the biggest selection of whiskies we've ever seen... So it only seemed polite to try a couple before dinner! The staff were very friendly despite it being a very busy Saturday night, and gave us menus to look at whilst we sat in the bar. The restaurant was bigger than we expected for a small family-run hotel, and was obviously very popular with guests and locals alike. They offer a fairly large range of typical bistro-type meals, which were well prepared and cooked to order. It would be nice to return to The Ardsheil another time when it isn't so busy, for a more relaxing evening.

Thank you for your review, Saturday nights are usually our busiest night we hope to welcome you back to the Ardshiel in the future on a Saturday or perhaps on a quieter more relaxing night of the week.

Seven of us having dinner at the Ardshiel on a Saturday night. Our booking had been made a few days before and everything ran smoothly. Staff were lovely and very attentive. Good choice of food and lovely atmosphere. Would recommend.

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The Ardshiel is always at the top of the list when deciding where to go out for a meal. The food and service is always first class by attentive and helpful staff. The recently refurbished whisky bar is worth a visit even if you don't want anything to eat.There is an almost bewildering array of whisky on offer but the knowledge of the bar staff will help you to decide which one is right for you.
The owners of the hotel are always on hand to ensure the smooth running of the service and always prove to be friendly and obliging - nothing seems too much trouble for them.
The only problem I ever have is deciding on what to choose off the menu - although I do highly recommend the haggis balls!
