Update on Winter Opening Hours – November 2021

winter hours

Sadly we have decided to further reduce our opening hours with immediate  effect we are not going to open up on Thursday’s .

Whilst we fully appreciate it is quiet in the winter months there is no point opening on days where there is no demand.
We will continue to open:
  • Friday 6pm – midnight
  • Saturday 6pm – 1am
  • Sunday 6pm – 11pm
We are still available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday’s for private functions by advance booking.
If you have an event, celebration or group gathering you would like to hold here please feel free to contact us to discuss and we would be happy to host.
Our number is 01586 830622
Should demand increase we are always ready and willing to extend our opening hours.
Thanks for your custom and understanding.
Best regards,
Tim & family

Update on events and changes – October 2021

We are hosting the closing party for the campsite on Saturday 16th October 2021 and so will not be opening the restaurant that day.
We have now placed QR code notices at the entrance and would like to remind all customers that you have a legal responsibility to either scan the QR code on entry or if you don’t have the app (Check in Scotland) you must fill in your details on arrival on the form available inside.
Mask’s must still be worn when entering the hotel.
As the tourist season closes we have decided that we will also be reducing our trading hours in reflection of the reduction in customers.
We remind all our new friends and customers that we have put our life savings into taking over the hotel and fully intend to make it both successful and remain a hub for the community but are equally practical that we can’t afford to staff and heat the restaurant and bar if there are no customers.

Our revised opening hours will be:

  • Thursday – 6pm – 11pm
  • Friday – 11am – 3pm and 6pm – 00.00
  • Saturday – 11am – 3pm and 6pm – 00.00
  • Sunday – 11am – 3pm and 6pm – 11pm
  • Last orders in the restaurant is 2.30pm and 8.30pm.
We will continue to monitor communication and ensure that we remain flexible in our hours to meet the needs of our valued customers.
We fully intend to of course significantly increase our opening hours during the tourism season.
Any changes in our trading hours will be given in a post update.
Please feel free to message us, or pop in and see us if you wish to discuss our opening hours or indeed if you would like to enquire about private function hire for days when we are not open.
Once again thanks for your support and understanding, I hope the community is happy with the way we are running the hotel and we continue to look forward to serving you all.
Best regards,
Tim, Sarah, Chris and Sheelagh
