The Ferry Bar

Superb bar food served from 12.30pm - 2.30pm and then from 6.30pm - 9pm daily throughout the year. Hot drinks and home baking are served all day.

Warm and welcoming, the Ferry Bar looks directly out over Port Appin's pier and across Loch Linnhe to the island of Lismore and beyond. Taking its name from the foot ferry to Lismore (there has been a ferry service from Port Appin since at least 1750) the Ferry Bar offers lunch and evening bar menus throughout the year.

On balmy summer days, take advantage of The Bar's outside terrace to enjoy a meal in the sun with stunning views down the Lynn of Lorne; on colder days, enjoy the view from inside with our wood burning fires keeping you warm and snug.

As a vendor of alcoholic beverages The Pierhouse takes its responsibilities seriously. In view of recent legislation in Scotland in December 2014 lowering the level of alcoholic consumption permitted for drivers, and in the interests of promoting ‘responsible drinking’, The Pierhouse offers an extensive range of non-alcoholic drinks. Please ask at the Bar for more information.

Bar menus

You will find the same dedication to quality food in our Ferry Bar menus as is featured in our award winning Seafood Restaurant. Our bar menus use local produce whenever possible and offer a range of seafood, meat and vegetarian options.

You can read our lunch bar menu here, and our evening bar menu here. Look out also for our Chef's Bar Specials.

The Ferry Bar also offers teas, coffees, drinks and home baking during the day, a great favourite with walkers, kayakers and cyclists visiting Port Appin.

The Pierhouse malt whisky selection

One of the highlights of the Ferry Bar is our comprehensive range of malt whiskies. These are carefully chosen to cater for most palates; click Pierhouse Malts to read more about our selection or download our list of malt whiskies here.

The Pierhouse gin selection

As well as featuring our old favourite gins, there's now an exciting world of new Scottish gins to explore - and the Ferry Bar is increasingly the place for just such an exploration. We could wax lyrical about the exquisite Lebanese mint in Daffy’s or the wonders of Shetland Reel distilled on the island of Unst – the most northerly inhabited island in the UK or indeed the 100% Scottish juniper in Crossbill. But we’ll say no more and just let these fantastic Scottish gins speak for themselves. Click here to see our full gin selection.

Spirits and liqueurs

Whether you are looking to complete your dining experience, or just to add a little special something to your visit to the Ferry Bar, we also offer a full range of sherry, liqueurs and other spirits: download the Ferry Bar's list of liqueurs and spirits here.
