The Restaurant

Our relaxed and informal restaurant has harbour views, a woodburning stove and white linen tablecloths. In keeping with our easy going style however, you can eat anywhere in The Colonsay that appeals to you.

Lunch is freshly baked bread, soups, seafood platters and steak and Colonsay ale pie served with salad leaves that we grow in our kitchen garden, all simple but delicious.

The Colonsay has a children’s menu, all food is freshly cooked, and may range from local fish and hand cut chips, to organic chicken breast and linguine with fresh tomato sauce.

Enjoy a delicious lunch and a glass of rose whilst waiting for the 3pm ferry on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. We are also serving food all day on Fridays, perfect while waiting for the evening ferry at 7pm.
