Simpsinns's smart coastal property with a New England inspired feel which extends to the shellfish studded restaurant menu and Si! Shack takeaway in the grounds.
Part of the Simpsinns Group of hotels and restaurants, the Waterside is a smart coastal restaurant with fabulous views out across to Arran. The décor is New England inspired, which follows through into a menu of seafood featuring the likes of chowder, fish pie and herb-crusted scallops. It's not all from the sea, there are burgers, pasta and curry alongside steak, sausages and confit duck leg. Care has been taken to list the restaurants local suppliers prominently on the menu. Afternoon tea is served between 2pm and 5pm, and breakfast until 11.30am. A 2014 addition is Si! Shack, which offers takeaway food, a range of fish with chips, grilled lobster and tempura-battered scallops to carry out into the grounds and enjoy while taking in the scenery.
