We visit every year!

The toasties are delicious. Would recommend the banana/cinnamon or haggis toastie. The scones are fab. Service is always good.

We nearly missed this gem and we headed to Oban. At Taynuilt don't forget to turn into the town. The friendly reception and excellent food made our day! Not to mention the coffee! Will not pass by again without stopping off here.

Visited this lovely little tearoom whilst holidaying in Oban. It was empty when we arrived but very soon was full of both locals and visitors. We had coffees and toasties and they were delicious. The service was quick. The place spotless. Fresh flowers in the ladies toilet a nice touch! Will certainly return when next in the area.

This restaurant is in the village near the railway station on Main street. A great place to stop for a light meal, or just tea & cake. We visited Robins Nest a couple of times in our brief stay in Taynuilt, and took in the excellent Highland Games there. Open 7 days a week - 10am to 5pm.

I come to Taynuilt every year to visit my grand mother and without fail a trip to the Robin's Nest is made. The ladies are so polite and I had a great cinnamon and fruit scone with jam and clotted cream. At the moment they have some local artists' artwork up on the walls and for sale. Great talent exhibited... More

This is a lovely small tearoom offering homemade soups, sandwiches and cakes. The toasted sandwichs are made with fair sized slices of bread giving a very heart lunch. The homemade scones with jam and clotted cream are a must (especially if they are treacle). Well worth a visit if you are passing.

coffee, hot chocolate and toasties were good fruit scones spoilt by adding a heap of cinnamon that left its taste for most of the day

We last visited 6 years ago. It was worth the wait. We had coffee and scones, the type of scones change frequently. Luckily treacle scones were on the menu- heavenly. We also had a take away chocolate fudge brownie reported as the best ever. The tea room is cosy and clean. All cakes and soup are homemade. Well worth a... More
