Christmas and Hogmanay

There’s a merry, Christmassy welcome waiting for you at The Shoregate.

The halls will be decked, the dings will be donged merrily and on high, and we’ll be serving seasonal menus and midwinter cocktails to warm your cockles and anything else that might need its temperature raising.


Come and celebrate in style at The Shoregate with our group festive menu. We can cater for parties of up to 30 for lunch or dinner and can also add drinks packages. To book, or for more details, please email us or call  01333 451 815 Wednesday-Sunday.


Join us in the restaurant from 6pm for a seven course tasting menu. Craig and his team will be pushing the boat out to serve up the very best of locally sourced Scottish food – from hand-dived scallops to Loch Etive sea trout to charcoal roasted sirloin, we’ll make it an evening to remember.
Find out more and book here.


On 1st and 2nd of January we’ll be kicking off the New Year with an all day  celebration menu in both the restaurant and bar from 12.30pm to 5pm. Featuring a traditional roast  and local specialities, bring your friends, bring the family and see out the day after the night before.
