Great food in a beautiful area

We were three families that had lunch here a rainy day in June. A good selection of food and everyone including the kids were happy. Five of us returned for dinner a few days later and the service and food were really good.

A picturesque pub that serves the walkers heading through Balmaha on the West Highland Way. Very friendly staff, and good pub food. One slight downside was that it took us about an hour from ordering our meal to be served, but we were a large group of 12.

Wouldn't class this eatery as extraordinary, but it was average. The view and outdoor seating area were lovely but I found it to be a little overpriced for the food we received. Me and my boyfriend both ordered fish and chips and the portion size was underwhelming. Would probably go back again just for a drink but not for food.

A good selection of foods on the menu, also had vegetarian options. Service was very good and efficient. A great single malt was had by my husband to finish his meal.

So during our week visit to the area we tried The Oak tree and it was nice, staff were very good and the food was nice. Parking is rubbish so recommend you park in the car park accross the road outside the tourist information centre. Its worth a visit but don't expect to be wowed.

Myself and fiance, Kellie where here on Thursday 11th June 2015. We decided to take a trip to Balmaha for a day out as the weather was lovely and was just back from picking our wedding cars. On route to Balmaha we passed the Oak Treen Inn and straight away we knew where we were going for our dinner. Really... More

Very warm welcome from the second we stepped in the door. A fairly extensive menu and good selection of locally brewed ales. The food itself was delicious and the service was just fantastic. The doggie bowls scattered around outside was just the cherry on top!

Popped in for a coffee and was impressed by how busy and cosy this place was. Wanted to try it for food but I recommend you book. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate were of quality. Staff very knowledgeable about local drinks, PLEASE TRY THE BALMAHA PIDER- Well worth it! The place has such a warm atmosphere surrounding it. Had to... More

We did the tour from Balmaha to Rowerdennan and back, so we were happy to reach the Oak Tree Inn after a day of walking. Enjoyed the food and additional drinks which we could have outside really much - great place to be!
