The Restaurant

Welcome to the Hawthorn Restaurant.

Located on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland in the village of Benderloch, near Oban, we invite you to dine in a unique and peaceful setting. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, the Restaurant sits on a traditional (and still active) farming croft, which is over 300 years old!

We are only a stones-throw away from the scenic Tralee Beach and within easy reach from many of the area’s guest houses, caravan parks and local attractions. The villages of Appin, Connel and Taynuilt are all only a short drive away. Please click here for directions on how to reach us by foot, car or public transport.

Our often changing menus feature scrumptious, home-made dishes, carefully prepared from quality ingredients. Chef Kevin Hanlon is passionate about using and showcasing fresh, seasonal, and wherever possible, local produce. With Scotland’s amazing natural larder around us, we believe we couldn’t be in a better position to offer you the best of meat, game and the abundance of fish and seafood that the West Coast is so renowned for.

The Restaurant is also ideally suited for hosting private parties, family gatherings and celebrations. Our team is highly experienced in catering for special events and functions and we can tailor the menus to your individual requirements. Please get in touch via our enquiry form to discuss your ideas.

Whether in for a light bite at lunch time, a hearty supper after a long day of sight-seeing, or a sumptuous dinner for that special occasion, a warm welcome awaits you at the Hawthorn.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
