Hubby and I dined here whilst staying at drimsynie holiday village. Mark and Gillian made us feel very welcome and the food was excellent and all home made so much so we booked again for the following night with the whole family :). Excellent value for money will deffo be back when next in the area.

Thank you so much for your super review of your Christmas Eve meal at the Shore House. I'm pleased you appreciated our 'open' kitchen - it is something that really works well for us as the diners can see the chefs at work and our wood fired pizza oven adds to the ambience of the restaurant. And, of course, our...

Just returned home from a wonderful weekend at The Shore House Inn, Lochgoilhead. Our hosts were very friendly, the room (room 2) was clean, extremely quiet and comfortable with an amazing view down the loch. The food was excellent in the restaurant, again with an amazing loch view. Wildlife outside the window including a Red Squirrel, nicknamed Syril, and an...

Thank you very much David for your fabulous review of the Shore House. I am so pleased you had a happy stay here and enjoyed our little inn and the peace and quiet of lovely Lochgoilhead.

Even on a dreich rainy Autumn day, the view of Loch Goil from the window table in the restaurant was something to marvel at. Lunch of Cullen Skink and then pizza was quite tasty and the "picnic lunch" on the children's menu was genius for a toddler. Food was very reasonably priced and staff friendly. It's worth coming to eat...

Not amazing and the photos make it look smarter than it is. Toilets in dire need of refurbishment. A very accommodating manager but a grumpy waiter. Some good food including pizzas and Cullen skink. Better in daylight to soak up the gorgeous Loch Goil.

Thank you for your 'nice enough' review of the Shore House. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your food but it's a pity you seemed disappointed with other aspects.

Lovely place, great service and good food. Well worth a visit if you happen to be in the area. Good value for money and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Best to book in advance as it can get very busy. Some people were turned away whilst we were there.

We came here in August and it was a lovely respite from the craziness of the Highlands at the height of touring season. The location really can't be beat due to the natural beauty of the loch.
