We were staying at a b&b nearby and Creagan was recommended to us. we went in the evening, enjoyed the fantastic views and had very nice pub food. We enjoyed liked it so much that instead of eating in Oban, we returned the next two evenings.

Beautiful setting but no effort to make it a cosy or welcoming pub. Why was the fire not lit on a miserable cold night?

There really can't be many bar /restaurants with a better view than this. There is a large deck area right on the beach with views along the water towards Mull. The interior is smart and modern, local hand drawn ales are excellent. We had an evening meal cooked to perfection and the place was busy with tourists and locals. Staff... More

We stayed nearby and this was our nearest watering hole so to speak. From the first time we went in the landlady Isobel and her staff couldn't do enough for us. They not only fed us and watered us but gave great advice on things to do locally. The restaurant is a chef run kitchen and it shows, delicious meals... More

We got a warm welcome, shown to a table at the window with the most superb scenery. Good menu, lovely locally sourced food and cooked to perfection. Extremely affordable for a lovely night out. Thank you.

Visited here as it's a beautiful location, affordable menu and generally just looked nice from the outside. We heard from our b&b owner that it may be under new management (?) and the place felt very new, although decor was all nicely done. It's a huge Bar/restaurant and we were one of about 4 tables in use so the atmosphere... More
