You can expect beef, venison and lamb from local farms, game, including woodcock and red partridge from island estates and scallops, lobsters, oysters, crab, langoustines and prawns from the Islay fishing fleet to feature on the menus.
Quality vegetarian dishes are always a feature, as are a selection of fine wines from around the world supplied by Inverarity Morton.
The Port Charlotte Hotel won the National Whisky Pub of the Year 2009 award! Islay is obviously famous for its whiskies, now it can also boast of the best pub for it! We won it for our ‘ambiance, choice of whisky and friendly staff’, something we hope everyone who has ever visited us will agree with. According to the Whisky Society we are listed as one of Europe’s top whisky bars.
As well as our whiskies, we also we also offer local ales on tap from Islay Ales as well as guest ales from mainland breweries.
We stock an extensive range of Islay malt whiskies served by knowledgeable and friendly staff. Complete with an open fire this is the place to relax and connect with the island.
The bar also has traditional music sessions as a regular feature; these have a distinct Scots/Irish influence, regularly accompanied by Gaelic singing.
