Reasonable priced food with an extensive menu and from local suppliers when possible. The setting is something else with great views over the loch, even on a wet September evening. Staff are friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. Cant wait to visit in the summer when we can make use of the lovely decking area.

What more can you ask for? Fabulously warm welcome. Totally accommodating. Stunning views over loch. Excellent food, appropriately priced. Great team spirit amongst staff (several are family). Lovely environment. Worth the drive.

The restaurant and staff are a credit to Isobel. Have not been here for years and it was wonderful. I do not know the name of the ladies serving but they greeted each and every customer with a genuine welcome. Would visit more if in the area. Good luck with painting the rest of the deck :-D The view was... More

We stopped for a break to revive after driving for a while and had a coffee which was good. The view from out the back was breathtaking and mad for the perfect stop.

Just popped in for lunch whilst passing and was more than pleasantly surprised. Remember this pub from the 80's when it was a real spit and sawdust bar. Well what a difference. It's been completely transformed, has a lovely ambience, has a huge deck at the rear with what will be fantastic views in the summer. The food is good,... More

A group of us had dinner recently while on holiday in Oban. Staff were extremely helpful and gave us a lovely table with a stunning view over the loch. The Creagan Inn is divided into a dog and non dog area which is perfect - I wish more places would welcome dogs. The menu is not huge but there is... More
