First visit here and very impressed by the atmosphere and friendly staff. Will definitely return for a meal sometime and also enjoyed the village shop next to the pub. Not easy to find local pubs that are really welcoming and inclusive.

Staying at Loch Melfort and visited a few restaurants. This menu was the best. So much to choose from. Didn't know what to pick and it was delicious. View of the marina at sunset was beautiful.
