Old Kiln Cafe


We’re sorry to advise we have extended our temporary period of closure.

Like you, we have been closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation and as the health and welfare of our visitors, visitor centre staff, and the wider community on Islay is of paramount importance to us, we have taken the difficult decision to extend our period of closure for the Distillery, Visitor Centre and Old Kiln Café until at least the 31st August 2020.

Consequently, we regret that all tour bookings, and all Seaview Cottage accommodation bookings until the end of August, are cancelled.  We will be offering refunds, or the opportunity to rebook at a later date, to all those affected.

To enquire about existing or future tour bookings please contact: distillery@ardbeg.com.

To enquire about an existing or future Seaview accommodation booking, please contact: seaview@ardbeg.com.

We hope you and yours stay safe and we very much look forward to seeing you at the Distillery in the future.

We will keep this page updated with any new developments – 1st July 2020


The Old Kiln Café at Ardbeg provides a tasty homemade lunch menu daily from 12:00 until 16:00. We serve something for everyone, with a wide variety of sandwiches, toasties, baked potatoes, light bites and meals available. We also have some fabulous daily specials – see below for a sample menu to whet your appetite! 

There is no need to book, unless you are a larger group. When the café gets busy in the summer, simply put your name down at the reception desk and wait.
