Pub Grub and Rugby!

This pub has 5 TV screens mostly showing football - but on request they changed one TV so that we could watch the Glasgow Warriors v Edinburgh rugby game on 2 January. Reasonable choice on the menu and the food we chose was excellent!

We visited this pub, during our five day stay at the Caledonian Hotel in Oban. We have a small dog and asked the barman if it was ok to bring the dog in. The barman was very helpful and friendly. He welcomed us and the dog and as we ordered our drinks he asked us if we would like water... More

My friend and I stopped in this place for dinner and a drink. I was looking forward to food, however, food is only served on weekend nights during the winter season. While we missed out on food the drinks and service were great. I would definitely come back.

We were traveling throughout England and Scotland and found many wonderful, fun pubs in every area, except Oban. Oban was lacking in traditional pubs but there were a lot of restaurants. We actually saw this pub from the ferry as we were heading to the Isles of Mull, Staffa, and Iona! When we returned from our day of tour, we... More

We stopped in for a drink and then had a meal,which was lovely and good value for money. We had a lovely chat with the couple who own it and the staff later in the evening were friendly too,as we stopped in on the way back to our guesthouse. Will definitely be back again

Cannot rate anything but lack of ambiance. Good location,poor presences. Not our kind of place. Maybe good for young and backpackers

We stopped in for a drink and ended up having dinner overlooking the water enjoying the sunset. It also has TV screens showing the sport so a really enjoyable little pub to have a relaxing low key night. Food was also excellent.

Great pub grub. Smashing service. Good atmosphere, particularly during live football ( on TV). Fantastic view, particularly at sunset.
