Our area produces great food, fresh seafood, meat and eggs from local farms, and vegetables grown at Ardmaddy castle.  And our restaurants and bars make good use of them.

We have two pubs on the island, one the Tigh an Truish – is nearly next door.   It’s a friendly and historic pub.

The kitchen is open Tuesday through to Sunday lunchtime, booking is recommended for the restaurant. Check out their social media for more information.

A short drive away in Ellenabeich you’ll find the Oyster Bar, with a varied menu and some beautiful views from their deck. They also have indoor seating (limited for Covid compliance) and outside in the square.

 The Fisherman’s Kitchen can deliver delicious seafood platters and more.                         Pre- booking essential, with around a weeks’ notice required.

Seil’s newest food business Solace Bakery cooks up delicious wood fired pizzas and breads for take away and delivery.                                                                                               Check out their delicous cakes and pastries too.

The Puffer on Easdale island is named for the boats which were once the lifeline of the islands. During lockdown they’ve been busy baking up a storm too, with a different cake or pastry every day.

You can buy them here on Seil at Balvicar Stores                          

The Puffer will be offering meals and snacks but check out their Facebook page  for up to date information, and a glimpse of those cakes.


Any of the takeaway options can be enjoyed in the comfort of our dining room.
