Description: Glass walls at the front of the outdoor area and large windows opening to the sea air capture the light and view for all diners in all weather with new modern alfresco furniture. The Penneshaw Hotel – also known as the “Penny”- has both inside and alfresco dining areas giving the hotel a relaxed casual feel. However, there's nothing casual about the excellent presentation and consistency of the food. With a superb wine list, some of the best pub food SA has to offer and competitive function options the Penny is a perfect crowd pleaser.

“Too expensive and bad quality!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

The location and view is amazing however the food is much too overpriced. The quality is not that good and there is usually quite a long wait as well. So unfortunately not one of the best...

“I am still waiting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

I have been here waiting now for an hour and 20 minutes. Other customers have come and gone. When I asked about the delay no appology was forthcoming. Instead I was told they were busy despite most tables being vacant. I know sometimes mistakes happen but an appology would go along way to improving my experiance of waiting here.

“So good we went there twice!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Only 2 nights on KI and as our hotel was walking distance we decided to eat at the Hotel. What a pleasant surprise!!! Very friendly staff, even ideas on how to drink my husbands favourite Scotch ( warm ?!). Food was miles above pub food and the new chef is bringing new inspiration to the menu. Bravo to all- can't rate highly enough!!!!!! And we could walk home- always a bonus.

“Anniversary Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed every meal and, the views as well as the bubbling atmosphere! Our accommodation advised them of the reason for our visit and we were greated with "When a Man Loves a Woman". Things improved from there onwards to make it a truly memorable event.

The salmon I tasted that night was equal to the best I had tasted anywhere in Bonnie Scotland.
