My whole family loved this pub restaurant, when we visited Dunoon earlier this month. What a lovely welcome we received, and our kids were made such a fuss of. We opted for the kids meal deal for them, which was excellent value, with a drink and ice cream included. Two of us went regional, and tried the Scottish beer battered haddock, which turned out to be a great choice. My brother had a steak platter, which was cooked to perfection, and he knows a good steak. After sharing their mixed combo to start, we didn't leave room for dessert, but we saw some going to another table, and they looked pretty good. All in all we got exactly what we wanted from a local eatery, and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting this lovely Scottish town.

Have reviewed The Eatery before but have to say it is now even better. Just had the most delicious meal no scrimping, huge portions all fresh made well presented and served by very friendly staff no such thing as cranky kids here staff go out of there way to keep kids amused.
I had steak pie this time served with chips and veg the pastry was extremely light and the dish was packed with tender lean steak there was no way this was microwaved.. Followed this with Eton mess' wow' compliments to the chef and the staff of this family friendly run pub and eatery looking forward already to next visit.

Ate in this small cafe on Sunday 4/7/2013 the menu was quite extensive with specials available, nothing was a problem for the staff, who, we're very welcoming.
We had home made tomato soup as a starter which was very very tasty, we also had a variety of main meals which were equally tasty, I would recommend this small cafe to anyone wanting a snack or a full meal they also serve alcohol should you require it.

Total cost for 6 starters 6 main meals and a round of drinks total cost £78 the cafe is an extension of the main pub which is accessed via swing doors you can also eat in the bar area should you prefer

The cafe is minutes away from the argyle car ferry between Dunoon and Gourock

We visited with our grandchildren, and were made to feel very welcome. Kids' menu at £4.95 was great value, being main course, ice cream, and drink. Our steak pie was very tasty, and came with either chips or baked potato and vegetables. Maybe a bit pricey at £8.95, but there was loads of meat in the pie. Colouring sheets and crayons were provided for the wee ones, and our waitress gave us good advice on what was available in the area.There's a beer garden upstairs, and a wee playground for the children.

found the food to be reasonably priced but everything is put in the microwave and unfortunetly i was served a cold meal as the chef "forgot" to heat it, although the staff were friendly and agreed a replacement meal by the time it came our 2 year old had become cranky and we were charged over the odds to have some diluting juice put in his bottle. it also meant that we were at our food at seperate times as by the time mine arrived the others were finished. Felt discount should have been offered
