Millport, Isle of Cumbrae:
Ayrshire & Wigtownshire CAMRA‘s 2018 pub of the year 2018, and well deserved. We missed the presentation of the award by one day.
Inside is smart and clean without deing devoid of atmosphere. The front part is bar, the back part family area and restaurant, and we saw that being enforced, so the front is adult space. 2 cask ales on when we visited, one being Jaw Spinnaker, which was frankly wonderful. Friendly, helpful staff, and good food too. Probably the best pub of our trip; definitely the best outside Glasgow. If it hadn’t required a ferry trip, we’d have been in more.
