We visited here for a family meal and weren’t disappointed. The menu was great and all of our meals were really lovely. Our 4 year old loved her dinner and the games that she could play after it. Would recommend

The PHT ( as the locals say) has been refurbished since our last visit. It was very nice, and we sat at a table with plenty of games to suit a 2 yr old grandson. Other tables were available!

The Pierhead Tavern is a bit of a local pub and a bit of a restaurant, both bits are great! Everyone was really friendly, locals, staff and tourists and we were soon made to feel welcome. They have locally brewed Arran Ales on tap and...More
