New England design combine with maritime features to give it all a look as fresh as a sea breeze. The inn is part of the family-owned SimpsInns group.
Local produce and international inspiration
Scottish produce, especially from Ayrshire, takes pride of place across the several extensive menus at The Waterside. From the Cairnhill beef used in the burgers to the Arran cheddar on the toasted ciabatta, the kitchen flies the flag for local produce. Whether in the form of seafood chowder, haddock and chips, fishcakes or seared scallops, there are lots of fresh seafood dishes to choose from.
Others may prefer to tuck into the Scotch steaks in the grill section. Diners are welcome to choose traditional Scottish dishes like the braised beef in an Arran ale gravy or opt for more international flavours like the tandoori chicken curry, smoked haddock risotto or the fajitas. Put simply from breakfast through to supper, there are options for every taste and all occasions.
