The Steam Packet Inn
The Steam Packet Inn is a family-owned and run pub and restaurant in the beautiful harbourside village of the Isle of Whithorn.
You can be sure of good food and drink, craft beers from our own Five Kingdoms microbrewery, and a warm welcome.
Situated on the quayside of a picturesque little fishing village on the very tip of the southwest peninsula of Scotland, the big picture windows look out over the harbour where you can watch the activities of the local fishermen and sailors, alongside the daily coming and going of the tides.
The Steam Packet Inn accommodation
comprises of seven rooms. Five of which overlook the harbour. All have been completely refurbished this year.
The rooms are perfect for escaping from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
All rooms are en-suite with baths and power showers along with the usual facilities.
Free Wi-Fi is included for all guests.
Dogs are also welcome in all rooms.
The ‘Packet’ is renowned for its food with an extensive menu served in either bar, lower dining room or conservatory.
The specials menu is changed twice daily and focuses on making use of the best available, local, Scottish produce through the seasons.
Unsurprisingly, we specialise in seafood; taking advantage of what the local boats can provide. Lobster, crab, sole and monkfish are just some of the dishes regularly served here.
A wide selection of drinks are available from the bar including our award-winning real ales. We are the 2013 area and region CAMRA pub of the year winners, an extensive selection of malt whiskies and a comprehensive wine list of which we serve at least nine by the glass.
Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are served all day.
Local activities include walking, fishing, cycling, shooting, bird watching, sailing or just simply relaxing in an idyllic location with a good book. Children and dogs welcome. Follow us on Facebook
