Great food, fine wines and a location with stunning scenic views
FOR the best of West Coast produce, fresh and wonderful flavours, served in a stunning setting, look no further than Loch Melfort Hotel and Restaurant. Loch Melfort is situated by Arduaine Point, next to Arduaine Gardens, and has direct access to the beach, where you can take a digestive stroll by the sea after a lovely meal. You can dine in the hotel’s 2AA Rosette Asknish Bay restaurant (evenings) or the more informal Chartroom II Bistro (open all day for refreshments and drinks, as well as lunch and dinner service). Both have direct sea views and you won’t fail to be taken in by the amazing scenery, looking out over the Sound of Jura and the Inner Hebrides beyond. Loch Melfort is passionate about good food and fine wine and this is reflected in a menu that makes the most of Argyll produce and foraged summer ingredients. The Chartroom II Bistro is a relaxed bar and restaurant with an emphasis on fresh local seafood, although meat lovers also get plenty of choice. It boasts a strong wine list and some excellent local ales and draught beers. The home-made ice- creams and baking make it an excellent choice for families with a play area next to the terrace and our friendly local residents – the hens and Highland cows. Asknish Bay Restaurant offers a wonderful dining experience in comfortable but more formal surroundings. The seasonal menu delivers options that combine traditional dishes using modern techniques, with a range of locally foraged ingredients from the woods and the sea, that will surely delight food lovers from home and abroad. Choosing from the a la carte or table d’hôte menu and with a beautiful wine list, a meal here is a lovely experience you won’t forget in a hurry. Loch Melfort looks forward to welcoming you this summer.
