I had 2 starters because they were interesting and was not disappointed. I had creamy fish chowder with delicious brown bread (?home made) then chilli flavoured salmon with salad & coleslaw with more delicious bread & butter. The Caledonian beer was just right. The decor was rustic with ships' beams which were the real McCoy. The setting was relaxing &... More

Haven't eaten here yet but was blessed with sunshine today and sat outside sampling the local beers on offer. Delicious beers and great service, the waitress from the Netherlands particularly lovely. Live music enticed us in to the small bar, good selection of whiskies but bad selection of language from some of the local boys. Not good for attracting visitors... More

Great views to Tobermoray harbour from the outside tables. Nice choice of cask ales and good pub grub. A particular feature was the wonderful friendliness and helpfulness of all of the staff, which in a biddy pub in August was highly commendable. Became our regular, since the beer and the welcome were so good.

The atmosphare in the 1. floor is like a waiting room in railway-station. The bread of the burger have been cold and not toasted. Two steaks go back to the kitchen. Instead of rare: shoe sole! Fore to bock a table on the next evening they say first "Yes, sure, what time ?". On the next evening no one knows... More

Service excellent. Great atmosphere. Fantastic fresh local food. Good value and quality. The scallops were delicious in a light, beer batter which didn't overwhelm the dish. The fish pie was full of flavour and fish rather than just fish flavoured sauce. Delicious.

We decided to check out the menu on the board outside and upon spying a rather dark looking cloud coming over the hill I decided we'd better see inside and taste some local beverages. Good job really as it lashed down as soon as we had sat down! The barman was really friendly and helped me choose a pint of... More

This venue had been recommended to us by a fellow resident in the guest house we stayed at. Macgochans' staff were friendly and they numbered several so there was always someone passing by to check on how we were doing. The service was quick and good food. The decor needs some work and we found the lighting too dark. As... More

Very busy when we were there but we were quickly accommodated and a standard wait for food. We had fish and chips - very generous portions. The fish the batter and the tartar sauce were all nicely done. Would return if we get back to Tobermory, outdoor seating is available but on this day it was rainy. A roaring fire... More

This meal was poor. Chicken escalope looked and tasted like it came in a box 4 for £2, and was covered in bright white (?!) sauce with a few mushroom pieces therein. Had requested vegetables instead of chips/potatoes and got half a small sweetcorn and some disgusting looking and tasting ?swede. Very disappointing as we had superb meals elsewhere on... More
