I really like the Marine hotel. The food is quite simple but well prepared. I like the idea of pairing the dishes with, mainly Belgian, beers. The service could do with a bit of extra effort though. Try to get a seat by the window the location is great and there is always something going on in the harbour.

Enjoyed a stunning meal at the Marine on Friday evening. The pulled pork croquettes were to die for!!! Everyone in our party enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the waiting staff let's the hotel down. They seem more interested in gossiping around the bar than serving customers. Every time we wanted attention we had to shout excuse me several times before they... More

I feel saddened to be in here right now on my birthday I have never felt so ashamed of hospitality as this. Rude lazy staff and the most igront locals you could ever meet. I will leave there hopefully you won't ever need to work it out or experience such rudeness!! I normally go west coast for my birthday and... More

Went here to eat and drink a beer at lunch. Well, the view on the sea is simply stunning, the food was great (I tried the smoked haddock) and the service decent (a waiter even spent five minutes to tell us the story of the beers we were ordering!). Speaking of ales... simply amazing! Definitely go to the Marine if... More

It's spit and sawdust all the way, but the local cowboys and cowgirls sure are friendly. It's better lit/more appealing than the Ship, which is lit up like an operating theatre.....

Right on the harbour front. You couldn't ask for a better situation. Only a mile and a half walk feom The castle on the cliff walk Staff are very friendly and helpful. The food excellent. The selection of beer both local and other is first class. Highly recommended

Service was good. We had starters of mussels and pulled pork croquettes which were both lovely. The fish and chips one of us had as a main was also nice but the sea bass which should have been served with tomato relish (as stated on the menu) actually had halved baby tomatoes on the plate which was so disappointing and...

My wife and I enjoyed dinner in the Marine, their menu provided a varied selection of seafood, steaks etc. The prices were reasonable. Our choices were both well presented and delicious, the staff were friendly and efficient. The only downside was the very steep stairwell leading to the restaurant on the first floor.

Visited on Saturday from Dundee. 3 people drinking diet coke - £7.20!! £2.40 is a ridiculous price for a small coke. Will not be returning as when driving a soft drink is your only option

As tradition insists you have to try a local brew just to see if it is drinkable. Really good place to visit and of course a superb pint well done.
