Went in today for lunch this is great food with good portions and very reasonable prices with a warm welcome, a big thank you to Chloe who cooked the meals they were delicious. Would definitely recommend going there well worth it.

Good, friendly, clean, value-for-money pub. Be warned - HUGE portions, go hungry!! Live music when we were there and we were given our own private space to celebrate our birthday party. Very snug and cosy.

Called in for a couple of drinks. Bar is OK, the staff are friendly and the beer was alright. A lot of locals in, so must be popular. Certainly a place i would re-visit

Friendly staff and homely food. Limited menu but what was served was tasty home cooked food. Good range of whisky's and reasonably priced. The ambience seemed a little quiet but the food made up for any lack of atmosphere.

My man and I discovered Marlie Dans on our second night in Oban. We enjoyed a few beers and had fish and chips for our dinner. Absolutely wonderful! Best part? Locals loved this place. No tourists other than ourselves.
