Good old pub grub! I can't say anything other than that! Good value, great food and a fab atmosphere. Always stop off whenever we visit to the area!

Coasters is a room with four TV's showing sports. A selection of samey lagers, Guinness and one cask hand pump which wasn't on when we were there. Good selection of whiskies. Pool table, friendly service. That is all. Why can't the bars in Scotland stock a few interesting beers in bottles? Scotland has some superb breweries such as Fyne, BrewDog... More

Just local to our hotel prices were cheaper than in the hotel but not by a lot. We found the area quite expensive except for the bar on the harbour near the ferry terminal which was very cheap.

We had a day visit to Oban, nice place. While walking along the front we found this pub, as it sold Belhaven ale we just had to go in. We decided to eat and had a lovely steak and onion baguette. Huge and so tasty with salad and fries.Would recommend a visit. The young girl who served us was lovely... More

Much enjoyed a super meal with mussels as fresh as they could be, super venison cooked perfectly and a very good bottle of Carmenere that was priced very well at £15.50. Fully recommended and the locals have found it and they say at the weekend you cannot get in!

This small pub is located on the promenade of Oban with the window seats overlooking the gorgeous bay. Very friendly service and good straightforward food. The chicken and rice soup was delicious as was the goulash. Food served till 9pm so a good place to enjoy a late drink without dodging hot plates of food.
