Been a Few Years

It was more like 2011 we visited, but it sold homely food (when away fro 2 weeks, pub foods lacks charm). We had the homemade roast beef, cheap, but a good sized meal (pay a lot more in a chain pub). I remember it was small, but seemed cosy and the food was good.

Visited this cafe twice now and very pleased. Small with limited seating so you may have to wait a little while but definitely worth it. Very reasonably priced, great homemade food with very friendly service. Used by the locals, we were made to feel very welcome as tourists and they let us bring our dog in which is great for... More

We arrived in Oban on August 2 after driving all day in the pouring rain. This was the first place we saw after parking in the Tweeddale car park. Good choice! The place doesn't t look like much but the roast beef dinner I had was lovely and my parents and sister really enjoyed their roast pork sandwiches. I'd recommend... More

It looks like transport cafe and has a cheap and cheerful feel to it. Friendly staff. £4.50 for roast, veg and potatoes which consisted of 3 large roasters, 3 slices of carrot and 3 of parsnip, 5 slices of tender cooked beef and gravy. It all tasted great, but a little extra wouldn't have gone amiss.

Visited with friends while passing through Oban last week. Saw the macaroni and cheese advertised on a sandwich board outside and so we decided to give it a shot. The restaurant was empty and the waiter looked genuinely surprised that we walked in (he was reading a newspaper at a table… we thought he was a customer). My friends were... More

Had seen the sign for this in Oban a while ago but it had just closed when I got there. Was back in Oban with my dad the other day and decided to give it a try! Absolutely amazing, had the rolls with beef and onion in gravy to take away, sat on the front and devoured them. The rolls... More

When traveling we like to find the little mom & pop places, they often have the best food and we weren't disappointed. The burger and fries were great and they were playing good old music in the back ground. The value was great for the money and we'd certainly go back in a heartbeat.

Popped in on the passing last week after reading reviews on trip advisor. Was impressed with good choice menu, excellent value . I had the chilli cheese burrito which was huge and I would definitely recommend it, staff are very friendly. I will be back next time I am in Oban
