Thank you for your complimentary review. We are fortunate to enjoy such a wonderful location and yes after a lovely meal in our bar or restaurant a walk along the shore finishes it off nicely and maybe a dram later!

Just what I was looking for when I thought of a Scottish / Islay pub. Comfortable. Good food and service. Judging by the number of locals who showed up around 7pm, this is a popular place.

An incredibly busy pub that sells traditional home fare within a short trip from the ferry. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is fresh and hearty.

Great room and wonderful staff make this a good place to stay and explore Islay. Well situated near Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig distilleries. Port Ellen is a lovely little town, the people are very friendly and this is a great place to stay.

We had the pleasure of a private dinner with our group from work. We enjoyed ordering off the menu. I had the seafood trio which was really delicious. Our service was wonderful. Don’t forget to leave room for the sticky toffee pudding.

Our bar meals are served between 5.30 and 8.30 p.m. Our dining room serves between 6.30 and 9.00 p.m. I would advise you call the hotel on 01496 850360 to book a table as this evening is already heavily booked. Thank you
