The Gigha Hotel epitomises the general feel on this beautiful community-owned island. You get a great, friendly welcome, with knowledgeable staff eager to please. Don't expect haute cuisine - this is a small rural community, eking out an existence from a short tourist season as best they can. Food (particularly the fish & chips) is average rather than excellent, but prices are mid-range also, so it is fairly priced. They were happy to serve a large party of 3 families, including 6 adults and 9 children, dealing effectively with us all, and all with a smile.
On a second visit, finding that the kitchen was undergoing maintenance and was only producing sandwiches, they still decided that they could produce fish & chips for my family of 5 - great service indeed.
The bar is snug, and locals are happy to chat, giving their advice on places to go etc. The next door cabin is great for families to eat in.
For those staying nearby, note that they do a fish & chip takeaway on Thursday and Friday evenings.
Overall, it's fairly standard pub grub, and is great for a family lunch or supper. Plus, by giving them your custom, you are supporting the community - that's something that I truly encourage you to do.
