Having in the same week praised Wetherspoons for its consistent excellent standards and food we found ourselves in Oban and this ideally located pub on the ferry pier and wondered if we had misread the ownership of this establishment because of the following.
Signs on every table informed that always on tap would be one of the following guest ales, Broadside, Doombar, or London Pride ales in reality none available.that day.
But never mind I could see at least 12 pumps in view, must be a real ale to suit a thirsty tourist.
Alas the Nimbus ale was off, the Abbot ale was off, and the JHB was off leaving just one choice for me a dark brew almost like a porter as the only option.
Food was ordered Chicken Korma and Haddock and chips and after thirty minutes waiting I decided to go to the service hatch to find out the reason for delay.
At least eight plates of cooked food were waiting to be served to tables, I asked if I could take my order as I could see it in line but was told service was computerised and it would be brought very soon and sure enough after 35minutes it arrived with an apology
Apologies were the order of the day this lunchtime already as the service was appalling.
As always the food was good and the price very acceptable,
