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
What a management misrun restaurant with lazy under/untrained staff. I have been here before and thoughly enjoyed before Argyl Holidays took it over. We had booked a table for 7.30pm on 1/9/21. Decided to arrive early as sunny day and have a few drinks. I...am diabetic and wanted a gin and slimline tonic. No slimline and i was not the only one who wanted one. No Glayva (in Scotland)??? The two hours we sat outside none of the tables had been cleared and people came and sat dirty unclean and not hygenically cleaned for covid. People started arriving for booking around 6.30pm and when we left at 7.30pm not one table from the 6 occupied had food. After a table walked out before our entry we decided against dinning. Menus badly printed.
You had to get you own drink at bar and also order food there also.Not good. ARGYLE get this little once goldmine back to normal or close.More
Group of 10 of us booked a table for Sunday lunch. Being wintertime, the Sunday carvery not available, but we all enjoyed what we had. The Goil burger looked stunning, we had the Beef pie which was superb. Large chunks of tender beef in a...rich gravy in a large portion too.
Service friendly and attentive, reasonable value, well done.More

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal with us! We look forward to welcoming you back
As one of the few places to eat in the area we gave it a go. It did not disappoint.
Beers on tap were typical of a local pub, but thankfully they had bottles of Fyne Ales (just not the one I was hoping for)....Ordered the fish and chips, along with the burger (adding bacon and cheese). Portions were huge and made it very good value for money. The batter on the fish was delicious and the burger was certainly handmade.
Overall very enjoyable experience and in line with what you'd expect from pub food.More
