Guest Reviews

Lunch en-route to the ferry. Lovely home cooking. Freshly made chicken, ham and leek pie was absolutely wonderful simply served with a nicely dressed salad, perfect. My wife had home made pate with salad and oatcakes, delicious. I thoroughly recommend for food

We stayed at the Ballygrant for two nights last week, and were very well looked after by David and Ewan. I am coeliac and David prepared a lovely veggie curry for me. The whisky bar is amazing and obviously enjoyed by locals as well. The service is quietly attentive, which we appreciated. We would be happy to return

Came here for a 2 night stay. First off check in is at 3 so you won’t get to your room earlier, but can leave luggage. The Inn is very welcoming, tastefully decorated & the bar/dining area is a great space. Food is fab. Best I’ve had on the island. Father & son owned… welcoming & friendly.. thoroughly recommend! A wee gem

We had a lovely lunch here today, the choices were great and service was fantastic, orders taken and serviced by really cheerful, happy staff. The variety of whisky was absolutely fantastic. Most definitely worth a visit.
