Since my first visit to Islay this has been my favourite pub. Small, friendly and not that many tourists. Oh, did I mention the great whisky selection?

Enjoyed the locals bantering and laughing with tourists. Friendly help from the bartender: quick with a joke, wink, and a smile. Best entertainment any night, a quiet gem of Port Ellen.

The Ardview inn is a small unpolished pub with character. Beers on draft and a VERY good selection of drams. Big bonus with the jukebox. Best whisky pub in Port Ellen.
