I was in the Glenelg Inn recently on a wet windy day. The roar of the log fire was most welcoming. We had a hearty bowl of soup and the Irish chap Kevin made us the best hot chocolate I've ever had. If it's hot chocolate your after Kevin is ur man. Will be back !

"Charming" only begins to capture The Inn! We've enjoyed a week of outstanding dinners, including great soups, elegant entrées and the best fish-and-chips ever. Best was "Quiz Night" in the pub: gathering of town folk for a hilarious charity trivia game: new friends came by for a pint, and easy talk of American politics and Scottish people went into the...

A friendly welcome in a place that effectively mixes being a "local" and a tourist destination without fuss. The room was well presented with a great view across the Sound, a lovely bath and a decent firm bed. The food was unpretentious, wholesome and beautifully cooked. Full marks would have been given if it hadn't been for a general grubbiness... More

Arrived on the Sunday at Glenelg and popped along to the famous Glenelg Inn for a spot of dinner that evening. The setting, the ambience, the staff and the welcome all suggested this was going to be good. Three courses later and having met most of the team, we were hooked. We ate there every night for the next five... More

We stopped by whilst out for a run in the car on a beautiful October day. The bar is dog friendly and very quaint. We had two courses but had we known the the portion of fish and chips you get is colossal, we wouldn't have had starters. Fish beautifully cooked in light crispy better, real home made chips, peas...
