We decided to stay a couple of nights in our motorhome at the Isle of Whithorn. On Saturday we thought we'd give this pub a try for lunch, having perused the menu a few times in passing! It is a popular place for locals and visitors and even in late October it was doing good business. There is a choice...

Stopped here on a wild and windy afternoon. Staff friendly and chatted to others also stopping for a quick drink away from the wind. Loved the fact they would do a lovely pot of tea when most others were drinking beer.

Booked as trip advisor looked good. Day before we observed people eating in dining room at front of place. Looked inviting. We were shown into a a dismal conservatory in the back of the place. The food was served cold and very average. Such a shame . The place has potential to be really nice.

Its a very busy pub so that in it self tells you just how good it...

Reliving my wife's memories of family and friends as they originally came from that area, we popped into the Steam Packet for a light lunch which was good quality. The staff were pleasant and willing to please.. Would not hesitate to recommend.

A first class lunch: I had haddock and chips, freshly cooked and very tasty, my husband had a seafood platter which was beautifully presented and included a wide variety of fish accompanied by lovely bread. That was more than enough to satisfy our hunger but we couldn't resist the cheesecake and each managed to demolish the ample portion of homemade...

Visited this pub/restaurant and was the worst place we have visited so far! The bar person was ignorant and rude! No please or thank you when we ordered drinks. Turned away and put his hand out to me to receive payment without looking at me whilst serving next customer. No info about beer although there was an extensive selection.. Felt...
