The pub looked like it was under going renovations so we were directed to the public bar. It was very lived in with no other patrons however the meal was excellent including a tender and well cooked slab of sirloin steak. Quality of food surprised us.

After several recent servings of deep-fried scottish food, it was refreshing to find an affordable steak meal and hosts who were willing to swap our chips for vegetables! Cooked well, good value for money. We were very happy

Staying one night at the nearby Rhins of Galloway B&B (excellent!) and needing an evening meal, we were recommended by our hosts to try the Merchants House, a few minutes up the road. We were not disappointed!

Lovely location with good views out over the Loch. Charming hospitality, good wholesome home-cooked food; including a significant chocolate pudding, which despite my initial hunger, I struggled to finish. More's the pity, as it was really tasty, but I was just simply too full up!

All washed down with a refreshing beer for me and a nice little Merlot for my wife. Just the job!

So if you find yourself in Cairnryan and are looking for somewhere to eat, you will not be disappointed! Give it a try!
