We stayed in Rothesay for a night but didnt want to eat in the town so drove around the island and found this gem. Excellent quality food at realistic prices served by happy and efficient staff. Recommended

My birthday lunch went very well. Plenty of choice on the menu and food was served fairly quickly despite being prepared to order. Staff were all very pleasant and attentive. Just a pity I was driving so only had one glass of wine.

We had the local filliet steak which was cooked beauitfully to our liking, and it was local beef from the island. The puddings were also lovely, again cooked on the premices, rather than wholesale puddings which are often found. Locals using the pub was encouraging.

I always look forward to popping in when i am over on the island. Really tasty 'proper' pub food with generous portions! Burgers are mouth-wateringly succulent (handmade with local beef). And the desserts are scrumptious! Tasting platter is a little plate direct from heaven. Maria and the team are so welcoming & friendly.

A nice find with very good service and nice food. Nothing exceptional but just met the bill for a light lunch. Menu looked good if you wanted more, or an evening meal. Really good for Bute where options are a bit limited.

Lovely, if remote, location Visited on a whim. Bute is beautiful. Food was lovely but be prepared - portions are very generous. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would love to come for an overnight some time.

I have been holidaying on Bute for many years and always eat at The Kingston Hotel at least twice each time. The welcome is warm and the service is efficient and friendly. Expect to wait a little while for your meal as everything is cooked fresh. My Mother wanted the fish pie which was described as having various fish and...

My fourth visit to stay here, and if anything, the food is even better. Clearly fresh ingredients being used, and, contrary to a recent review, the portions are very ample. Some imaginative dishes, as well as standards such as the roast beef available at weekends, served 'with all the trimmings', which is no understatement, down to the kilted sausages, stuffing...
