Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had previously been for a drink and found the venue welcoming and the staff friendly. Decided to return for food and were greeted by a varied menu that also catered for a milk, eggs and wheat intolerant member of the party. The food was...warm and we'll presented and above all tasty. We would recommend the Goil Inn for a visit to anyone and will definitely return when next in the area.More

Both the food and the service were excellent with nothing a bother. There was 6 in the party plus a dog and everyone was pleased with their food and drink.

My wife and I had an excellent lunch at the Goil, focused on a selection of starters. The goats cheese fritters were superb as was the soup. The ice cream for dogs is a great touch and they had high chair facilities for our 10month...son. Highly recommended.More

We visited the Goil Inn twice this week when staying at Drimsynie Estate. The bar is nice and staff very welcoming and friendly! We had drinks and food both days and the food was absolutely lovely, well presented and fresh. Prices are just the usual...what you pay nowadays for eating out ect I thought they were just as you expect I'd say average. I had the roasted red pepper soup on the Thursday and it was the tastiest soup I've ever had!! My little boy also absolutely loved the chicken nuggets aswell said they were the best he's tasted! They also offer a lovely selection of ice cream to have in a tub or cone. The views over the Loch are stunning and we can't wait to come back and visit this beautiful place again!!More

We had booked in here for a big birthday celebration lunch and were really looking forward to it. It was a lovely day so hoped to sit outside. Apparently they don’t do food outside??? So we went inside as we had booked a table. We...were quite a big party but no table had been set up for us. The menu consisted of either a jacket potato with cheese or tuna, or a sandwich with either cheese or tuna. That was it!! This could be a great, friendly pub and instead we got rude, uninterested and unprofessional. So instead of having a big celebration, eating and drinking in a warm friendly welcoming local pub, we got up and went to our accommodation and had a great time there instead. These people are seriously missing out on being a much talked about great pub serving great food all day. Instead, it’s not worth anymore words…..More

The food was very good and the ambience and chatter in the bar was great. However thst is where it stops. The menu was very limited, steak pie, fish and chips, scampi, steak, lasagne or salad. I dont do beef but had to relent and...have a lasagne. It was hot, tasty and whilst portion size was small snd served in a very shallow dish, it was made better with a very small salad garnish and a garlic piece if ciabbati bread. The restaurant was characterkess and had a hang up of seventies school canteens about it. Food is important but so is ambience and it seems in these parts hospitality missed out on the latter point, we ate up and left.More
