“Return visit!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We stopped for lunch again and it was every bit as nice as our last visit. We again had the cold seafood platter with crayfish, prawns and hot smoked salmon with their own bread and we loved it! I had their homemade icecream and my husband their carmel tart which we both enjoyed. Nice homebaking and a small gift shop to browse as well as the garden centre. Easy to miss the entrance as on the right a few miles before Oban. Nice staff with good service. It is busy and nice outdoor area with great views if a nice day. We will return!

“great views with a seafood platter”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Friendly service and lovely views out towards Mull. We had the cold seafood platter which was fine and a knickerbocker glory which was like a eton mess with ice cream. Menu is quite limited though and prices are average.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were visiting friends who were holidaying with their two children in the area. We we searched on the web for local places to eat en route to Oban and found Poppies, and so glad we did. From very friendly and helpful service to delicious and reasonably priced food, to the superb views out to Dunstaffnage Marina and beyond the whole experience is one we will definitely be repeating. And if you are into gardening, there is also a good garden centre too!
