Overlooking Loch Indaal, The Lochside’s stunning restaurant offers menus designed to cater for all dining tastes and requirements, while showcasing the abundance of local produce Islay and the surrounding area has to offer.
The Lochside’s restaurant offers spectacular views of Loch Indaal and Bowmore harbour – and the food offer is just as impressive!
Designed to cater for all dining tastes and requirements, the seasonal menus showcase the abundance of local produce Islay and the surrounding area has to offer, with seafood naturally playing a starring role. Much of our seafood is supplied by local fishermen – from the fresh langoustines delivered straight to our kitchen door to stunning Islay scallops simply served in a caper butter sauce to let the beautiful seafood take centre stage.
And there’s a fresh, local flavour running throughout the rest of our menus, from Islay Ale-battered fish and chips or Islay venison steak to our ever-changing catch of the day or Bunnahabhain chocolate cake. Menus also feature a great selection of lactose-free, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian dishes; and a range of ‘wee plates’ for our younger and older guests should they wish.
With such a fantastic food offer, wine is a big focus at The Lochside and we have a comprehensive range that pairs perfectly with each seasonal menu – from stunning wines to complement our beautiful fresh seafood to those which pair perfectly with meatier mains.
Beyond our fantastic wine range, The Lochside has a great selection of gins, including those from Islay and Jura; local beers; and our incredible 300-strong whisky range, which includes many rare and unique bottlings.
The Lochside is part of The Rocks Leisure Group - a small independent collection of bars, restaurants and hotels in stunning locations across the Scottish Highlands and islands.
