Clare Johnson and David Wilson have owned the Kilberry Inn since 2004, they used to own The Anchorage Seafood Restaurant in Tarbert. David runs front of house, his banter and Negronis are legendary. Clare’s cooking style is spare yet elegant with flavours that ring true and an emphasis on excellent ingredients, thoughtfully prepared. Together with a small team, they aim to provide a personal welcome, attentive service, really good food and a relaxed atmosphere.
We have entertained world famous opera singers, cricket legends, political pundits, best – selling authors & flamenco guitarists and had cosmopolitan journalists hopping with excitement. There are unconfirmed reports that the Queen dined here during her 80th Birthday cruise.
Clare beat the Hairy Bikers, Si King and Dave Myers in a cook off when they visited the Inn to film part of their BBC2 series “Food tour of Great Britain”. The restaurant has also been featured in The Glasgow Herald, Harper’s Bazaar, The Sunday Times, Scottish Field, Conde Nast Traveller, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, Delicious & Olive magazines. We were one of The Times 20 Best Places to Stay in Scotland in 2017.
We’ve had our Michelin Bib Gourmand for 14 years – awarded for good quality, good value cooking and one of only a handful in Scotland. We hold a Good Hotel Guide Cesar award and are proud to be included in The Good Food Guide and Pete Irvine’s Scotland the Best.
