“Good prices”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

The quality is not at the top, still good, but prices and quantity permit to be very satisfied. Kind staff and live music.

“Obans best seafood”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Was in today for my lunch and as always the mussels were to die for ! Definitely the best restaurant in Oban for fresh local mussels accompanied with the fine red wine they have on offer and with this fantastic weather we enjoyed our lunch sitting out in the newly refurbished beer garden which is a little sun trap so great for the tan! Staff were welcoming and friendly and place had a nice wee buzz about today

“Dirty unsavoury bar”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Called for a drink on Monday 9th June as we were staying at a hotel close by.

What a shame the manager/owner has let a pub with such lovely features go to this poor level. Filthy tables, some with empty glasses and cans. Dirty floor, filthy woodwork round bar area, brass fittings, shelving on show. Pint and a half of bitter £5.40, you'd think the management could set aside a few bob for some cleaning materials and maybe some staff training ... It's not as if they were run off their feet, the pub was practically empty.

“REAL ALE (Deuchars IPA) ALWAYS Available”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Old fashioned pub with a good choice of sea food at reasonable prices. I normally have the burger which varies from ok to excellent! Can be relied on to have Deuchars IPA on tap. Has an outside covered area with tables for smokers. Not many in Oban
