The food and beer were very good, with a reasonable selection of both. Within walking distance of the harbor and most of the inns in Broadford. A good choice for the neighborhood.

Pub looks like recently renovated. Food was good, and it was great to chat with the locals in the pub ;-)

We ate with friends and had a satisfactory evening. With a group of 8 the staff did not welcome the business with open arms and we felt that it was almost a chore in having us. The mains were good although the traditional dishes were more recommended. One main did not arrive until most people were almost finished the meal. Staff were dour and did not make us feel welcome.

The food is classic pub food, it's not the best but you get what you pay for. The service was a bit disgraceful - Nobody could pour a pint of Guinness correctly and they got my food order incorrect. I was ignored at the bar a few times as well.

The Gabbro Bar is a pub attached to the Broadford Hotel in Broadford. It is just behind the main road and easy to get to. Somehow it is not in the most beautiful spot on Skye. It is a traditional pub with good service.

Being a traditional pub it is comfortable rather than classy. It looks like the sort of place that might well have been harder prior to the smoking ban. It does smell a bit. The decor is somewhat faded but perfectly fine. Seating is comfortable with a range of pub style options.

Service was excellent. Friendly and fun. Delivery of food was prompt. Probably the best thing about the bar was the service quality.

Price is based on this being attached to a hotel so is a little inflated. Skye does not come cheap so value at Gabbro Bar is ok.

Food was just ok. Nothing was particularly wrong, just not especially interesting or flavoured. A predominant flavour of onion wasn't a great idea. To make the food worthwhile there needed to be plenty of condiment use. Portion size was generous and filling. This is possibly a decent option for a hearty meal after a day in the hills.
