Staying in the area for three nights we had eaten in two other local restaurants and looked for another good quality meal in Mallaig on our last evening there. We chose the Chlachain Inn and we're not disappointed. Made very welcome by a lovely smiley waitress/ barlady we chose fish and chips which were excellent. Altogether this is a very... More

My brother enjoyed a delightful pub meal. The fish and chips were excellent and the house burger was most satisfying. The entertainment with a live rock band made for a really fun evening.

We've eaten at the Chlachain a few times since it was refurbished by the new owners.

Nice open fire and welcoming staff. We ordered fish and chips and a burger to share. The fish and chips were absolutely excellent, the haddock incredibly fresh and the batter crispy. The burger was well done, I would have preferred it more rare but it was still very tasty.

Stepped in here for a warming pint in front of the fire and stayed for their wonderful Chinese menu. Much better than anything I have ever had before and very reasonably priced. Try the special - you won't be disappointed.-
