As non residents, we dined in the Hotel's Rannachan restaurant last week (17.10.16). Whilst the food that we had was nice, our 'Local Lobster and Prawn Cocktail' contained no lobster and our 'Locally Smoked Haddock, Oban Bay Chowder and warm chunk of olive bread' was notably lacking in olive bread! I queried the missing bread with one waitress - who... More

We ate here 2 nights and also had a late lunch in the bar because of the weather. Good value for money. Some standard dishes, but also some surprising ones. I recomend the brushietta goat and the smoked haddock if you are into surprising tastes. Didn't try the deserts.

We enjoyed 2 great breakfasts and 2 fantastic taster menus on a 5pm DBB deal. In the morning, a wide selection of cereals, juices, fruits and hot options awaits. Free-range eggs with runny yolks competed with herby sausages, sliced haggis, smoked bacon, and Stornoway black pudding. Very good first impression from the chef - and the service team could not...

Good restaurant a little further out on Oban’s waterfront, serving conventional, traditional dishes and seafood. We popped in as a couple for a dinner on a special occasion and it was great for an unfussy, quality meal without being particularly exciting. The decor is a bit of a subtle mix of hunting lodge and nautical, but is basically warm and... More
