The Pennan Inn is a local independently owned bar and restaurant situated on the Banffshire coast, 40 miles north of Aberdeen. A warm welcome and friendly service awaits.
The Pennan Inn and the iconic red phonebox was made famous by the hit 1983 film Local Hero.
In which an American oil company sends a man to Scotland to buy up an entire village where they want to build a refinery. But things don't go as expected.
A restaurant with a cosy atmosphere and hints of modern styling. Known for our diverse menu, we try to offer our guests something different from the everyday culinary experience of the North East.
We offer a set lunch menu
and an A la carte dinner menu.

The Pennan Inn closed for business in August 2007. During September 2009, Peter Simpson bought the hotel and reopened for business on the 4th October 2009.
During this time we have since become one of the premier destination restaurants in the area.
Peter has a passion for using some of the finest local ingredients. His menu is small, however changes on a regular basis. Although trained in classical French cookery many of his dishes have a strong Asian influence coming from his love of Asian food and time spent in South East Asia.
