As an expatriate Scot I called into 'the Goil' hotel along with my wife and 6 friends during a visit to
Lochgoilhead. It was dreich day anyway but the reception we received was equally so. No Scottish beers on offer either in draught or bottle and the food offering was totally inflexible. Outside and in the entrance there was a takeaway offering 'available everyday' but woe betide if you ask for anything from that list for lunch. It seems the takeaway menu is available only in the evening but nowhere doesn't say that. All I wanted was a black pudding with chips - but seemingly "its not allowed during the day" - I understand the chef threw a wobbly when asked to cook it at lunch time even though I was prepared to pay a lunch menu price for it. Also one of our party ordered scampi which wasn't served with tartare sauce even though the 'fresh' haddock was. Again not allowed, everything has to be accounted for.
The food that was served was ok but no more than that. So if you're looking for a real welcome avoid this place like the plague.
