The Restaurant at The Royal an Lochan
The menu (current menus above) in the Royal an Lochan restaurant includes both traditional and speciality dishes such as our duck, chicken and beef dishes which are styled to make the most of seasonal vegetables.
The Royal an Lochan also offers fresh seafood and diners can expect to see, depending on the season, a variety of fish, langoustine and scallops from Tarbert on our menus' starter and main courses.
Food Allergies Catered For
We are also sensitive to specific dietary needs and can cater for diners with, for example, gluten allergies and nut allergies. If you have any concerns about allergies and our menus, please contact us.
The restaurant is open every evening except Wednesdays. Booking in advance is always recommended to check availability. The restaurant with its stunning panoramic sea views across to the Isle of Bute is warm and inviting with artwork by Scottish artists. Stuart Herd and Anne Hewitt display some of their artwork on our walls providing a warm and vibrant ambience. On Wednesdays there are a number of other restaurant options close by and we are happy to arrange a booking.
The Royal Shinty Bar
The Shinty Bar in Tighnabruaich serves a range of traditional home cooked bar meals using the freshest produce available to us. So why not pull up a barstool, have a pint with the locals and enjoy some hearty pub grub. Alternatively on a nice sunny day why not eat outside and watch the world and the yachts go by.
Inside the bar there's always a warm and friendly atmosphere (helped by our fantastic wood burner), the walls are adorned with photos of Kyles Athletic Shinty team, one of the best shinty teams in Scotland. The Royal an Lochan is a sponsor of the local team. The photos date back to 1901 and are displayed along with other shinty memorabilia.
FREE WiFi is available in the Shinty Bar and throughout the hotel
We've sought out the the best suppliers of meat, fish, and garden produce on Scotland's west coast. We thank them all for their consistently high quality produce that we are able to bring to your restaurant table.
Some of our local suppliers are:
- A&D. Johnson Fishmongers just over the water in Tarbert.
- Prentice Seafoods (famous for their visit by the Hairy Bikers), who are also from Tarbert.
- McIntyre Butchers on the beautiful Isle of Bute.
From time to time we host special Gourmet Nights which feature a 5 or 6 course gourmet dinner with wines matched by our supplier and tasting notes delivered by a speaker.
Not only are our Gourmet Nights fun exploring the huge range of tastes and textures, they are informative too with detailed descriptions of the wines and how they complement the dishes as well as the provenance of the dishes' ingredients and how we arrived at the menu selection.
All the dishes on our Gourmet Night menus use local produce sourced from up and down Scotland's west coast and are a magnificent showcase for Scotland's bountiful larder.
