“So-so restaurant - whisky bar far more interesting!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Came here for an evening meal one night while passing through the area. Had steak and chips with a blue cheese sauce. Steak not bad but chips were clearly mass-produced frozen chips, and the sauce was gloopy and out of a jar (suspiciously like one of those 1980's style "Colman's" packet sauces you make by adding water to the powder). Had a cheese plate to follow which disappointingly comprised only the local cheddar cheese.

Overall, bland cooking you could experience in any average hotel across the country with little flair or emphasis on local ingredients. I got the impression most of the trade is hotel residents on a captive DBB package.

We moved through to the whisky bar afterwards for a nightcap - this was a revelation. Over 450 bottles of whisky and a very fancy bar room set-up with newish furnishings, decor and lighting. Pity they haven't upgraded the restaurant to match the showcase bar.

“the restaurant here is excellent”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I had locally smoked mussels followed by scallops which were cooked to perfection, my partner had green pea and ham soup followed by roast turkey again perfect. The staff are friendly and very helpful, there is something for everyone with a lot of locally sourced ingredients. There is nothing negative about the food or service it is well worth a visit.

“Malts unlimited”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

This is a must visit hotel bar when visiting Campbeltown. It claims to have no fewer than 600 malt whiskys. I did not get a chance to try all of them but the ones I did try were beautiful. The barman was a malt expert & that made the experience so much more enjoyable.
