Cosy ambience in the bar area on a blustery September day. Order at the bar. We had bowls of tasty soup and fresh bread to satisfy our need for something hot.

We had a very warm welcome from the staff and owners of this pub. The food was very good we could have no complaints whatsoever. We enjoyed the place so much we visited it every day during our 3 day stay in the area. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Keel Row to anyone apart from the serial... More

6:00 pm dinner and it was starting to fill up. Service was great but it took quite a while for our fish and chips to arrive, don't know why. But we were entertained by the locals at the bar. The bartender came over to our table and talked to us. Then he asked how our home town (US) football team... More

This is a small place that struggles at busy times but the food is very good pub grub with a nice bit of imagination. I ate and drank here several times over a 2-week period and enjoyed every mouthful. They don't take reservations so you have to turn up and wait for a table during high season. Restaurant staff were... More

If you want to eat here be warned it was really busy and lots of people were struggling to get a table, Service did really suffer in wait times but perfectly friendly. The food was fine but afraid nothing special.

Food just ok. The place needs a good clean. Getting rid of the dead plants and improving the lighting would help. Soulless! Would never return.

A group of ten of us arrived early evening,after a trip to Iona. We had decided to go there as on a previous occasion, as four of us had enjoyed a pub meal at lunchtime. Even though we were there right at the beginning of the evening service, we were told we couldn't book a table. And then, that we... More

Very pleasant place to drink in for a pint on a rainy day. The potato leek soup was just the ticket. We returned for dinner. Plain but delicious food.

Bit of a strange booking system as it seemed empty but you had to wait for a table. Good food and wine selection, average meals, friendly staff. Free wi-fi. Right by the ferry port.
