While staying on Colonsay the visitor has a very limited choice when it comes to eating out; at the time of writing (Oct'09) there are only 2 places for non-residents to eat out on the island, these are The Pantry and the Colonsay Hotel.  The Pantry is a simple cafe and gift shop near the pier, which serves as a tea room, coffee bar and restaurant.  The menu is simple and homely.  The Pantry also sells home-baked bread if ordered in advance.   The Colonsay Hotel is quite a smart and stylish establishment, which offers bar meals and a more extensive (and expensive) menu in the restaurant.
