The Harbour Inn wins best seafood pub in Scotland award

Harbour Inn, The Square, Bowmore, Islay, Argyll & Bute, PA43 7JR

The Harbour Inn in Bowmore, Argyll and Bute has been presented with the AA Best Seafood Pub in Scotland Award, which is sponsored by the Sea Fish Industry Authority (Seafish).

The Harbour Inn topped 84 pubs from all over Scotland, also set to appear in the AA Pub & Inns Guide 2001, which also contains details on 2000 pubs throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

The family-owned Harbour Inn stands on the sea wall next to Lochindaal – only a stone’s throw from the Bowmore Distillery.

Bistro-style lunches and nightly dinners focus on Islay’s succulent seafood, dishes include local crab fishcakes and baked Gruinart oysters and griddled Lagavulin scallops.

David Hancock, AA Pub Guide Editor says: “The Harbour Inn can't help but make good use of the local fishing industry, so not only are diners offered innovative and delicious seafood meals, but they can also be assured that the ingredients are the very freshest possible.”

Howard Thomas, Trade Development Executive for Seafish says “Seafood is the ideal meal choice when eating out – it’s extremely tasty and because it is very versatile, there is always something on the menu to suit everyone.”

Scott Chance, the Harbour Inn owner, received a certificate from James Chassels, AA hotel inspector. There are more than 2000 AA-recommended pubs in the AA Pub Guide 2001, with 500 displaying the Seafish symbol, which indicates that the pubs offer at least four dishes based on sea fish.

AA Pub Guide 2001 is published on 1 October 2000, priced 10.99.
