Twenty minute journey from centre of Rothesay. The town itself is short on good restaurants so it is worth the journey especially on a good day where you can sit outside, Good size menu food was good if a tad expensive but all in all a nice place to while away an hour or so over a bar meal

After visiting Rothesay and concluding we didn't see anywhere pub wise that looked appealing we got in the car and stumbled across the Kingarth. The girl behind the bar was very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. Me and my wife both had bar meals, they where excellent quality and good value for money. I would definitely recommend this...

Lovely setting. Very accommodating and friendly staff, only let down by high prices and average food at best. It tries hard, but is let down on a few points. Firstly, PLEASE get rid of those damn redcurrants that are served with everything!!! Really, it got quite irritating when they appeared on everything from pork medallions to the cheeseboard! The local...

Excellent lunch. Fabulous food and service with a very welcoming atmosphere. A great menu including the 'specials of the day'. The outside looks good and the inside is nicer still, great ambience and comfortable. Well worth a visit, don't drive by!

We ate here several times while staying in Rothesay last month. The selection of food is superb as is the quality and taste. Can highly recommend the sharing desserts too. Great selection of beers and huge variety of whiskies too. A gem of a place. There's a beach just a short distance which is great for the dog/kids. Hotel is...
