Visiting Oban, we just wanted a decent but affordable lunch. It was! Our sons enjoyed your pizzas and we the fish/chips offer. The Lorne Bar is good, close to the shopping streets as well.

The first "pub" we tried, at our hosts recommendation, felt more like an Applebee's. Bad food, full of American tourists. The Lorne was what became familiar to us as a real Scottish pub or bar. Great atmosphere and really good food and drinks. I really liked the set up of having the bar right in the center with seating all... More

I stopped there for a quick, early dinner and I was pleasantly surprised by the service and quality of the food. No surprises in the menu or at the bar. The place is safe and nicely out of the way of the Main Street of traffic, giving it a feel of a neighborhood pub. The food was good both times,... More

My wife and I had lunch and beers here one day and it did the job - decent food and ale and friendly smiley staff. We went for drinks another night and it was a different story - an extremely (read: deliberately) unhelpful bar lady who seemed to have an issue with tourists and was downright rude to some overseas...

I would recommend that you pay a visit to The Lorne Bar if staying in Oban. Our meals were excellent and very reasonably priced. Both Jenny and Michelle made us very welcome and we will definitely be back when next in the area.
