We tried to dine here during our sailing holiday on the Caledonian Canal. We were sitting at a table outside as we had our dog with us, but were told we couldn't eat there as staff could not bring food out to us. We then asked if there was anywhere inside where we could eat, but were told this was also not possible. The place did look rather busy, hence the rather "take it or leave it" attitude of the lady behind the bar.
A local couple directed us to The Lochy pub, further down the canal and on the opposite side, where the staff were friendly and welcoming, the food was nice and reasonably priced and we were given the choice of either dining in the public bar area or outside.
