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 Inn boasts two bars and seven en-suite bedrooms. It’s a building that clings to its heritage, radiates a family atmosphere, and offers a comfortable bed for the night.

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.

Children and dogs welcome.

Five Kingdoms Brewery

Award winning beers which use whole hops, quality malts and fresh local water.

Five Kingdoms microbrewery began in 2015 and sits in the beautiful harbourside village of The Isle of Whithorn in Dumfries and Galloway. The small fishing village is nestled on the tip of the Machars peninsula, close to the stunning Galloway Forest hills and is Scotland’s most southerly brewery. Five Kingdoms, so called because England, Ireland, The Isle of Man, Wales and Scotland can all be visible on a clear day from the Isle.

It came about through a mutual passion for beer of publican Alastair Scoular who owns and runs The Steam Packet Inn, the village’s only pub and his head chef Brendon Dennett. Brendon, who had previously worked at renowned Scottish brewery 6 Degrees North in Stonehaven brought this wealth of brewing knowledge to the partnership. With the location, premises and experience of the pub trade and a pure passion for real ale, Alastair and Brendon were the perfect balance for a successful venture to create honest, fine ales.

Crates of beer and gift packs are available to buy online via our website below.
