Lovely spot of lunch

Stopped off here for a sandwich and glass of wine. As was the last time we visited a few years ago the sandwiches were lovely and fresh with quality ingredients including local Tobermory bakery granary bread washed down with a lovely Sauvignon Blanc. Will definitely be back MacGochans and won't... read more

We ate here twice and both times the food was tasty and substantial. My husband had steak and scallops on both visits and the steak was tender and well cooked! I had the steak and ale pie which was also very nice! Great pub food.

We went here for dinner after walking around Tobermory. It's in a great location right on the water. It was popular but not over busy. I imagine in the middle of summer it would be jumping. I had a local pint, scallops and a beef and ale pie. All were excellent. Lots on the plate. The waiters were on their... More

We had the seafood chowder followed by battered haddock. We struggled to finish our main course as it was HUGE. Food was excellent but think the next time we will ask for the smaller portions which we discovered were available. Will go back next time in Tobermory.

We were lucky to be in Tobermory with the beautiful sunshine and a perfect day for an Al fresco lunch. Sadly our British venues with outside tables / facilities never get it right. Tables crammed together and always takes an age to attract a waiters attention or get tables cleared. Macgochans was no exception to this. Food was ok but... More

Title says it all really. It does get very busy in the summer, though, and when you first arrive it's a bit unclear whether you are meant to wait to be seated or just grab a table yourself. The latter seems to be the norm and a friendly waiter/waitress will soon be along soon to take your order.
