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 shellfish in. She asked if there were mussels in it as she does not like them. She was told that as the pie was cooked to order they could make it without the mussels. No freezer to microwave fare here. My Father and I had the roast topside of beef with all the trimmings and it was delicious and presented beautifully. The wine was served in generous measures and the coffee is rich and strong. Cannot wait for next year's visit.

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 and roast parsnips among lots more. Note that dieters should beware of the first class dessert menu! While basic, the en suite rooms are clean, comfortable and offer excellent value. Attentive friendly staff and a first class proprietor help in the general welcoming feel to this place. No doubt my fifth visit will be in the New Year, and will be looked forward to. Many good walks straight from the hotel to ease any excesses!
