Great food served at the Balnoon Inn. All is from local produce and freshly cooked to order. We offer daily specials and a varied menu that has a modern take of traditional British cuisine. We are happy to cater for vegetarians and any dietary needs. Please inform the staff when booking or upon arrival.
