Great Food and BIG serves

We were staying at a nearby B&B and walked over to Macgochans for an evening meal. We each ordered Fish from the menu knowing that it came from local waters. Wow, the meal was big with the beautifully cooked fish hanging over the edge of the plates. There was enough for two people in each serve but... read more

She came back a few minutes later and took the food order. No sign of the drinks... Still no drinks... One of the party went... More

Macgochans is set back from the water's edge, across a small but busy car-park - it's not the most fortuitous of locations in some ways, although it is close to the jetty, pontoons, museum and shops (including the Tobermory distillery). It's got a very large, umbrella-ed outside eating area, although we ate inside, in the wood-panelled restaurant and bar, which... More

Love this pub and visit regularly every time we're on Mull. Nice real ales from the brewery next door and really nice environment. Nice to sit by the roaring fire with the dog after a day exploring the Island and walking in winter. Great service every time.

It came as no surprise to see this island pub achieve recognition in a recent awards ceremony. Excellent service, great food and good value. Brilliant to see so much on offer over the Winter period let alone the Summer months. If ever in Tobermory you must visit.

Regretfully, we spent only two days in Tobermory in summer 2012. However, we shall never forget it, and we certainly hope to return as soon as possible! Macgochans was simply marvellous, as unforgettable as can be; great food, great service, great atmosphere!!!
