Had a few drinks in the hotel bar and were treated fantastically by the host and Lesley behind the bar. Very friendly and good wee atmosphere. Gary and LJ

After reading the reviews we thought we would give it a go as a family for music festival. Excellent music, family room was huge and very accommodating. Food was great value for money. Drinks are cheaper than previous hotel and the staff where lovely. Our kids and us are looking forward to next year. Booked already 👍

Attempted to eat here on a Wednesday evening for 2 adults and 2 kids. Told just to pick a table ourselves then waited a long time for menus. After selecting we were told we had the wrong menus and were given more menus. After 45 minutes we had drinks but still no food order. During this time we saw a... More

Durin a trip to Tarbert I found this gem of a restaurant. The menus offered a range of different foods so you are sure to find something to eat and the food comes quickly. Not to mention the food itself is incredible and the staff are very friendly. A great experience overall.

This place had some very poor reviews in the past, but put that behind you. The new management (owners) have worked hard to bring this place back to life. Can't speak for the hotel part but the restaurant is now well worth a visit, even if only to see the wonderful quirky furniture. The menu is fairly basic, but should... More
