Review : This hotel is in a beautiful, quiet Bay and is surrounded by stunning views. The bar itself is quite small with a limited selection of beers and whiskies. When I was there they had Belhaven Best and Arran Sunset on tap - I actually watched the sun set on Arran whilst drinking a few pints of Arran Sunset ! The food is standard pub fare at reasonable prices, having said that I did enjoy my meal as it was a good portion size and was served quite quickly. There are play facilities for children outside in the garden and a games room in the hotel, no children are allowed in the bar after 8pm.
Despite the limited selection of drinks I really liked this bar as it had a great atmosphere about it. I think this was down to it's location and it's friendly staff, they even have live music and open mic nights - if you are brave enough !!
