“Great rooms and food in a beautiful and tranquil location”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

We stayed at the Shore house Inn as part of a short stay in Scotland. The hotel and restaurant are of a high and homely standard and the food in the restaurant exceptional. The owners Mark and Gillian were very friendly and made us feel really welcome. The view from the restaurant is like a postcard view over the loch and is a stunning backdrop. We will be staying again.

We had a family meal here, 15 of us ranging from age 4 - 84. We had booked in advance and had a lovely long table in the middle of the restaurant, which offered a lovely view of the loch. The food was out of this world, there was a choice of 2 roasts (beef or lamb) as well as the normal lunch menu, I had the beef and it was 3 huge slices, a yorkshire, and loads of veg and potatoes and my little one enjoyed her picnic platter. The waitress was attentive and ensured we had drinks throughout the meal.

We look forward to returning again when we next holiday in Lochgoilhead.

We have stayed in Lochgoilhead twice in the last 12 months and on both occasions visited the Shore House Inn restaurant. You always get good sized portions and every dish we have tried has tasted superb. The menu provides a wide range of choices along with the stone baked pizzas too. Local beers at the bar and a good selection of wines. The staff are very friendly and always make you feel welcome. The surroundings and view from the restaurant are superb.

A spur of the moment decision led us to the Shore House Inn. We were not disappointed! This is such a quiet,relaxing place which suited us so well for a wedding anniversary treat. Great hospitality,food and a beautiful room made it all just perfect. The web site is good and easy to use and provides accurate descriptions and photos of what to expect. Plan to stay here again and hopefully do not have to wait a year for our next anniversary. Thank you.

Room Tip: Only 4 rooms so we were very lucky at the last minute to have room 2, overlooking the loch - beautif...

You need to book early if you want to eat here. The shore house is run by very helpful staff in a family run atmosfear. The views from the main dining room over the Loch are amazing. Do not be put off by the price list as the food makes up for that, you do not need to order a 3 course meal as the main will fill you up.
Recommend the Pork in Cider, Sea Bass, and the Venison all excellent.
There is a small bar at the side of the main dining room if you would like a bar meal instead.
Will visit here again when up this side of Scotland again.

The service was excellent, seemed to be family run and very attentive, the food was good and cooked fresh, no fried food was nice, but I think a brave choice.

The clear winner was the location and the view down the loch.
