We visited on a wet day at lunch time and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Fantastic fish and chips and a huge steak & ale pie. Good local beers too. Friendly staff and good value.

We've not been to Balmaha in long long time so didn't know what to expect from the Oak Tree - was it going to be another one of these tourist rip off places that are all over Scotland??? To our pleasant surprise the food was lovely and the young people that were serving us were all very nice, helpful and... More

Myself and a couple of friends stayed at the Oak Tree Inn on our First Night of the West Highland Way. The accommodation is good, clean and modern and worthy of the status. The restaurant served good substantial meals and the bar sold very good whisky. The main attraction of this hotel however is the beautiful beer gardens, the oak... More

Highly recommend this as a lunch destination or for a bite to eat after a day in the area. We eat here regularly after walking and it's consistently good. Pub food, but well above average and reasonably priced. Bustling friendly country inn atmosphere and balmaha and surrounding area is stunning.

We stayed at the Oak Tree Inn on a Friday and Saturday night in late July and had a great time. We were fortunate enough to be staying in the new Aber Cottage which had apparently only opened a fortnight earlier. We had an a double room on the upper floor which had opening doors giving a great view of... More

Was here recently for dinner with my girlfriend. Nothing at fault! service was spot on, very attentive and friendly staff! (Kevin and House manager Kirstie) We had haggis pakora and garlic mushrooms for starters both very tasty! and shared a 12inch tingi pizza for our mains. Honestly was great and it is in such a lovely spot of Loch Lomond... More

Had the misfortune to visit the Oaktree Inn food & service was dreadful, when we complained to the manager (Kirstie) she was downright rude & obnoxious how some people manage to get jobs I will never know avoid this place like the plague.

The Oak Tree Inn is the centre of Balmaha, all village life seems to revolve around it! You could almost sense that they felt that this meant they didn't have to try with the service because where else could you go. It was either impersonal and rushed or lethargic and unenthusiastic. The coffee at breakfast was undrinkable, though the latte... More

Spent a couple of nights late June. In one of the cottages a short walk from main building. Room was clean and facilities very good. The buffet breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Ate in the main restaurant on the first night and the bar on the second. Both meals were very good. The bar has an excellent selection... More

Called in for lunch yesterday and the service and food, alongside local beers, was simply excellent. If only everywhere made the same effort! Will definitely be back and recommend to family and friends.
