Fantastic friendly hotel. The restaurant menu was great. Loads of choices, local sourced produce. The staff were friendly and accommodating, nothing was to much trouble. Great atmosphere would highly recommend. A must if visiting Islay. Not too expensive conmpared to other restaurants.

A warm welcome for us and our dog here at Katie's. Situated in the middle of Bridgend this was a good place for dinner, pub food which was well priced.

Bridgend Hotel is an 11 bedroomed country hotel with a dining room, public lounge (known as 'The Strath') and Katie's Bar which sells food in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The hotel is run by Lorna McKechnie and is owned by Islay Estates. Where possible we use locally sourced food, particularly shellfish and game from the estate. Children are always welcome, as are dogs; there are drying facilities at the rear of the hotel for those caught out in the rain.
