The Steam Packet Inn
Harbour Row Isle of Whithorn DG8 8LL
The Steam Packet Hotel in the Isle of Whithorn is situated on the quayside of a picturesque little fishing village right down on the very tip of the south west peninsula of Scotland. The big picture windows look out over the harbour where you can watch the activities of the local fishermen and sailors alongside the daily coming and going of the tides. The hotel boast two bars and seven en-suite bedrooms. Its a building that clings to its heritage, radiates a family atmosphere and offers a comfortable bed for the night. The 'Packet' is renowned for its food with an extensive menu served in either bar, lower dinning room or conservatory. The specials menu is changed twice daily and focuses on making use of the best available, local, Scottish produce through the seasons. Unsurprisingly, we specialise in seafood; taking advantage of what the local boats can provide. Lobster, crab, sole and monkfish are just some of the dishes regularly served here.
Five Kingdoms Brewery
c/o The Steam Packet Inn, Harbour Row, Isle of Whithorn, DG8 8LL.
Five Kingdoms microbrewery began in 2015 and sits in the beautiful harbourside village of The Isle of Whithorn in Dumfries and Galloway. The small fishing village is nestled on the tip of the Machars peninsula, close to the stunning Galloway Forest hills and is Scotland’s most southerly brewery. Five Kingdoms, so called because England, Ireland, The Isle of Man, Wales and Scotland can all be visible on a clear day from the Isle. It came about through a mutual passion for beer of publican Alastair Scoular who owns and runs The Steam Packet Inn, the village’s only pub and his head chef Brendon Dennett. Brendon, who had previously worked at renowned Scottish brewery 6 Degrees North in Stonehaven brought this wealth of brewing knowledge to the partnership. With the location, premises and experience of the pub trade and a pure passion for real ale, Alastair and Brendon were the perfect balance for a successful venture to create honest, fine ales.
