Description: The Peat Inn is owned by award winning Chef and columnist Geoffrey Smeddle and his wife Katherine. With Geoffrey at the heart of the kitchen and Katherine's warmth and care filling the restaurant, they have been successful in building on the very fine reputation of one of Scotland's most cherished destinations. The Inn has existed on this spot since the 1700s. Today, the Michelin starred restaurant with rooms continues to welcome guests who appreciate the special and very personal experience which is the hallmark of The Peat Inn. Three small dining rooms make up the restaurant, providing an intimate setting for lunch or dinner. Each room is also available for private parties if required. The reception lounge with its deep sofas and open log fire, creates an atmosphere which is elegant and refined and made all the more enjoyable by the friendly and attentive service. A few steps from the restaurant is The Residence where eight individually designed luxury suites offer the opportunity for a rather special night away, where the pleasures of the table spill over into a charming over-night setting. From your aperitif upon arrival to coffee and a liqueur before you have to depart, we are sure you will enjoy every moment of the wonderful cuisine and hospitality at The Peat Inn.

Had an overnight here a couple of weeks back which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Room was a duplex, w lounge upstairs, beautifully appointed with every amenity, prime of which were some lovely brownies and a lovely carafe of sherry, not to mention half a bottle of champagne.

Dinner was a six course tasting which we thought was very well executed and pretty good value. The roast onion was a standout, although it did explode somewhat, resulting in an over salted experience as the garnish was a bed of sea salt (bit of a shame). Other dishes were delicious and faultless throughout. Only gripe was a very poor, thin Tasmanian Pinot Noir which we changed for a Chambolle Musigny without problem.
The service was attentive, seamless and efficient throughout and the room service continental breakfast - with Gigha Smoked Halibut (difficult to get a hold of as a customer) no less.
All round a thoroughly enjoyable night away.

We had what can only be described as the most fantastic evening at the Peat Inn on Saturday night. From the moment we arrived we enjoyed wonderful food, fantastic wines and the warmest and most professional of service. It is evident that all the staff at the Peat Inn love their work and get a real pleasure from seeing their diners have a wonderful experience.

We all chose quite different options from a fantastic menu and each of us thoroughly enjoyed their choice; from the lovely hors d'oeuvres - delicate, tiny and packed with flavour through to the most divine kedgeree then onto perfectly flaky and scrumptious John Dory followed by a fresh and zingy rhubarb pudding - it really was superb.

Oh and the Albarino accompanied the meal perfectly! Thanks to all the team for a very splendid evening. Roderick & Louise xx

This was an exceptional evening , up until the last 15 minutes. The service at the start was superb, from the first contact for drinks to explaining the menu and then to our table. The food was great, if I had one small point it was the pork, I enjoyed it, but it was not as good as the duck or the John Dorry, they were just out of this world, the starters and the sweets well to start and finish with these dishes was just MMMMMMM!!.
The spoiler was we had had our coffee and finished when they then came with the Petit Fours, so we asked for an other coffee so we could enjoy them, we waited ages on the coffee so when it came we had finished the petit Fours.
But overall a great experience and my daughter loved it.

This experience is not for anyone in a hurry. We sat in the lounge for quite a while, and were eventually given a menu to look at along with a tiny elegant appetizer. Eventually we were shown into the dining area and partook of three artistic plates, with plenty of time between courses. All were beautifully arranged but none were filling. I was disappointed with the chocolate mousse because there was very little of the dark chocolate - just four little dollops. For the two of us, the total bill was a hundred pounds once we added in the tip. I had a single glass of house wine and my husband had a soft drink. It's a nice place for a special event, but I didn't think it was worth the price for what we ate.

We had been given a lunch voucher as an anniversary present. All that can be said is- what an experience!!!
Lovely aperitifs in lounge and amuse bouches. Then at our table from the chef aperitif crispy fish skin and cod tartare. OMG
We then had the main from the lunch menu - beef 12 hours could’ve been cut with a spoon then we did a la carte desserts. ❤️❤️
Salivated as we ate. Will be back loved it
