“Average.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

Came in with my girlfriend and to be honest it wasn't great.
We both had the 1/2 chicken which came with barely any vegetables with no option of extras.
Service wasn't the best either, we expected a little more from a hotel associated restaurant.

“Here today scone tomorrow”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

My partner and I popped in for a cream tea whilst on a mini break to Oban. Oh my giddy aunt - how can such a beautiful place get such a simple thing so wrong. The cream was so old it had almost turned to powder. The scones had the appearance of really cheap budget supermarket variety and the jam was a congealed mess of the cheapest, nastiest strawberry flavoured (I say that because be assured there were no strawberries in it) jam known to man.The scones were stone cold and crumbled into a hundred bits with the one knife between two (I kid you not) provided to spread the revolting jam and cream. Sure it was cheap enough but I'd rather pay more for better. Never again

“Useless, bad tempered staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Food was great but service was just awful.. very Fawlty Towers...quite entertaining. They have great offers on the menu and the prices are surprising good considering the "upmarket" impression given by the hotel and the lovely location.
