Places to eat in Portpatrick

Portpatrick very probably has more places to eat than any small village in Scotland! When you stay a week at Rickwood you can  eat in a different restaurant or pub every night without leaving Portpatrick!

Campbell`s Restaurant is owned and run by local couple Robert and Diane Campbell. While they specialise in fish and sea food dishes, there is also a selection of non-fish dishes, including steaks.  Robert has his own boat in Portpatrick harbour so that the crabs and lobster are as fresh as they can possibly be!

Due to its popularity with locals and visitors, booking is recommended. On Sundays a special value menu is on offer in addition to the a la carte when booking is essential! They also serve excellent lunches. Campbell`s is open Tuesday to Sunday.

Fernhill Hotel The Fernhill is across the road from us so it only takes a couple of minutes to walk! As this is a residential hotel, booking is essential. If you manage to get a table in their conservatory you will be treated to an unrivaled view of our harbour. The Fernhill also offers afternoon teas- including a “sparkling afternoon tea” for a special treat.

The Waterfront Hotel  Also a firm favourite with our guests is the Waterfront Hotel which is, as its name suggests, on the harbourside. There are several tables outside where you can watch the comings and goings at our harbour. The Waterfront has a small cocktail bar where bar meals are available and a restaurant.

The Crown Hotel  The Crown is a bit of a legend in Portpatrick and is famed for its sea food. A full range of meat dishes are also on offer. Like the Waterfront, the Crown has many outside tables as well as a bar and restaurant. Two guest real ales are normally on tap – usually one of the real ales is from our local Portpatrick Brewery.

Harbour House Hotel  Also on the seafront is the Harbour House Hotel. It has a conservatory with outstanding views adjacent to the bar area and meals are served in both. They have a few real ales on tap.

The Mount Stewart Hotel is at the top of the cliff at the far end of the seafront and offers a full range of meals in its bar and restaurant.

The Port Pantry is a cafe in Portpatrick Main Street. Provides delicious light lunches and snacks, tea, coffee & cakes! Wines and beers available.

The Galloway is a recently opened bar and cafe above Portpatrick adjacent to Galloway Point Holiday Park.

Knockinaam Lodge Hotel has a stunning location beside a private beach about two miles south of Portpatrick although it is a little further by car! Fine dining is on offer including a taster menu. If you would like to dine at Knockinaam as a special treat when you are staying with us at Rickwood, we will be happy to take you there and collect you afterwards. Alternatively, there is a taxi service operating from Portpatrick.

The Old Colfin Creamery  Regular visitors to Portpatrick will fondly remember the Colfin Smokehouse. regrettably the smokehouse stopped trading a number of years ago and earlier in 2017, a brand new restaurant has opened in the building – a couple of miles along the road from Portpatrick to Lochans. While we are yet to sample their food, they have already built an enviable reputation.

Henry`s Bay House Restaurant, Stranraer  Thr Bay House has a lovely setting on the shores of Loch Ryan on the outskirts of Stranraer, about 7 miles from Portpatrick. Delicious food is served from an extensive menu and their bar specialises in a large selection of gins.  The owners, John & Jane Henry are from Portpatrick and offer expertly cooked, locally sourced, fish and meats. The Bay House has  a delightful sun terrace overlooking Loch Ryan.

Portpatrick Golf Club (Dunskey) We are getting great feedback from golfing guests about the excellent catering – lunches and evening meals provided by steward Euan Little at Dunskey Golf Club.

The Boardwalk  Operated by the same owners as the Port Pantry, The Boardwalk is open weekends and is situated next to the amusement arcade near the Lighthouse Pottery. Speciality is pizzas.

There are several excellent cafes and tea rooms on and around the Rhins of Galloway peninsula. Firm favourites are Gallie Craig at the Mull of Galloway. Scotland`s most Southerly Cafe which offers spectacular views and The Potting Shed at Logan Botanic Gardens (admission to gardens payable during main season) for excellent food including lunches.
