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.

Popped in to have a drink and they were showing the old firm match. Staff were really chatty and friendly as were many of the other customers , even though we were supporting the opposite team from the rest of the pub. Will definitely be...back when we are in the area againMore

Smashing little pub with super landlady (I think she was the landlady). Popped in for a lunchtime drink whilst staying in the village. Extensive range of bottled spirits, good range of beers and what would usually be a good selection of drafts but due to...supply issues, was limited on our visit. But we were given a very warm welcome and good knowledge of bottled alternatives.More

We visited on Saturday , as we have done over the years on our way to Islay. We were greeted by a very polite young girl who informed us of the clear protocols. She was later required to repeat this to a slighter larger group...and those that apply to households, the group accepted this. She was then questioned about this in a rather aggressive and challenging manner which we found unnecessary by a group of 3 men. They were also quite prolific with their expletives in not only their manner to her but also in their general discussion. There was indication that the men were regular customers. As stated we have frequented the establishment over the years and appalled and embarrassed as this has never been our experience in the past.More

Friendly bar scene with good range of drinks, however locals gather around the TV which is above the toilet access corridor so can require a bit of negotiating around these animated people who have their backs turned to you and are discussing latest events. This...was at a quiet time so don't know what it would be like when busy. Very surprised that they do not have a card machine and require cash only.More

Stayed in Tarbert for a weekend, after drinking here a couple of days I was made to feel like a local. Very friendly, good range of drinks and the main bar in Tarbert in my opinion. Love pubs like this. Shows sport too.

Myself and 4 friends came in on Saturday 29th October for a few hours. Good selection of beers, ciders, gins and whiskies. The barmaid (Rachel?) Was very helpful and hospitable. We'll be back next time.

Every visit to Tarbert I make time to have a couple of pints of their 'best' Caledonian bitter. Friendly staff and overlooks the harbour. No food though.

If you can find a friendlier 'mine host' , Dougie - you'll be doing well. We were staying nearby but adopted this as our 'local' such was the friendly welcome we received , from everyone. Great bar , fine selection of malts served with genuine...friendliness. Well done , will certainly return to Tarbert and The Corner.More

This was a warm, friendly pub facing the harbour in Tarbert street. We were able to walk from our hotel, The Anchor Hotel, and enjoy great cold beer and friendly service. The owner was present and asked why we were in town and upon discovering...our next day's trip to Islay by ferry, provided us with a map and some information. Several in our group took their beer across the street to picnic tables next to the water. If we are ever again in this wonderful little village, we will definitely be back.More
