The quality of food here, especially for lunch or dinner, is second to none on this island. The practice of providing a separate dish of vegetables, several thereof, well cooked, is excellent. The general standard of fish, poultry and meat dishes is also high. The house wines are good and not too expensive. The service is good enough, the ambience very good except for occasions when there is a noisy gathering of pool players etc which can disturb. Criticisms: scallops are far too good to be cooked and served on a skewer. I am sure there are better ways. If there is hardly anybody in the place and I want to hear as well as see a test match, I should be allowed to do so. Angry at this attitude, I did not go to it for six months. That means they lost about 50 meals from me alone.

We eat here every time we are on Bute and have never had a bad meal yet - so much so we've asked them to cater for our wedding!

The specials board is always enticing and has plenty of options for everyone. They also use local ingredients wherever possible, and are passionate about the food they produce.

Don't miss out! It's most definitely worth the extra few minutes drive!

We did not stay at this hotel but felt I had to review the restaurant. While Staying on Bute we used the hotels restaurant for our evening meals and each time found the staff very friendly and food of excellent quality.The large specials board had everything from steaks to seafood , the sea bass was excellent.

Only reviewing the pub / restaurant where the family recently had lunch. A good selection of meals from traditional pub grub (baked potato's, burgers etc) through to "fresh" fish and a large specials board. However, unlike previous visits, we were disappointed. We ordered lunch for 3 but the chef got one wrong and one came cold and went back into the kitchen to be zapped in the microwave! The fish was rather oily but the chips were great! Still a nice venue with some good beers but over-all I think the kitchen needs to get its act together.
