Doesn't take much - does it? ;-)

Why isn't the Royal Hotel open? The town could do with a great restaraunt in the centre of town selling fresh produce etc etc in nice surroundings with a great view!

I was at a wedding there in 2006 and they had done the downstairs bit (where you used to get lunches/coffees etc) and it was done up lovely. A prime place to have a bustling ALL DAY eaterie but also sell wine and cocktails (there's nowhere in town selling nice cocktails).

Also heard that mcgochans might be doing food again, hope new owners are more successful than last we need a good clean friendly place with good pub grub.

We went to the Argyll Hotel at Bellochantuy yesterday for lunch and I would recommend it. I had chicken goujons and it would satisfy anyone out for a meal. The service was fantanstic and I couldn't fault the meal. Anyone in this area looking for good service and a fantastic meal should head for the argyll hotel in Bellochantuy. 100% recommended.

I'm going to try the Argyll again as we went last week for a buffet and they ran out of food before they got to me :( Although I'm sure they do good at a sit down meal so might try it again... It is a lovely setting.

No but I'm going to try it this week as I always say I'm going to stop there! I read Tam Cowan's review in the paper last Saturday and he said the Kilberry Inn was the best meal ever and is top of his list - scored 25 out of 25.

We`ve just arrived home after another 2 lovely weeks in Kintyre. Last Sunday evening we went to the Argyll at Bellochantuy on the off chance of getting a meal without booking in advance, and were accommodated in a very friendly manner, and had a lovely meal at a very reasonable £14-95 each for 3 courses. We`ll definitely go there again.
We also had a few good tuck-ins at the Ceann Loch Diner in Campbeltown, and at Lite Bites in Tarbert, where the service was fast, efficient and friendly. We called in at a fish and chip shop at Ardrishaig, and ate in, the food was delicious, but, we thought, a little pricey. Fish and chips twice, one mug of tea and one can Irnbru, £16-50.
The only thing we didn`t like about our holiday this time was the weather, but unfortunately that`s something nobody can control.

Went to West Loch for a bar meal tonight. Huge portions - made mistake of having a starter as did not realise how big the mains were going to be! I had the lasagne and it was easily double the size you would normally get in local eateries. £25 for two courses for two - worth every penny!

We went to the White Hart at the weekend. I know I complained about it earlier but, I have to say, I think they've got new staff! Very quick service although it was busy and the meal was lovely. I heard they've a new chef. Hope they manage to keep him/her.

Something special and worth its 5 star status..............Dalnaspidal. Amazing what they have done with an old run down cottage. Beautiful views and excellent cuisine. Only 10-15 minutes from the town...Worth a visit....and of course Southends Muneroy tearooms. Excellent!!

The Stonefield Castle Tarbert food is out of this world and not as expensive as u might think, plus great service and a lovely view from the restaurant.In the Town the best meal i've had in a while has been the Argyll Hotel in main street.

If you're heading to Glasgow for the day, try the Stonefield at Milton. They do a carvery for £3.50. It was a lovely meal with a choice of meats, veg, potatoes, gravy etc. You can even go for seconds if you like. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I know this thread is about eating out in Kintyre but I just thought it would be handy to know of somewhere nice when you head up the road for a day shopping.

Had lunch in the Mussell Ebb in Aqualibrium yesterday and it was faultless. Shame it's no longer open on a Sunday.
