4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We decided on the spur of the moment to try this place which didn't look much from the outside. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food which was plentiful, fresh and good quality. The decor and furniture was fairly basic but the views over the loch were great. Parking is an issue with two small and cramped... More

Had a pub meal in the Glue Pot last night. Tempura battered prawns came wrapped in filo pastry (was advised this at the time of ordering) however the prawns were still raw. OH had the scallops which he said were delicious, followed by a large pot of mussels in the classic garlic and white wine sauce served with chunks of... More

We weren't expecting much, despite the tripadvisor reviews, as most of them were about the hotel rather than the restaurant, and we just wanted an evening meal. Off-road Parking is available but it is limited, and other parking options nearby are minimal. The restaurant was busy and deservedly so as the food was very good. The decor is minimalist and...

We stayed here two years ago on our way to Lewis. We were repeating the trip this year with a larger family party. We found the same warm welcome, clean and well-decorated rooms and good food in the restaurant, that we reported on 2 years ago (2014). I would definitely recommend the Oyster Inn for families, couples or single travellers.... More

Popped in for an evening meal when we were staying in the area. The views for the restaurant are stunning on a sunny evening ! We ordered a variety of food which took quite a while to come. The food was nice but nothing outstanding, just OK. It took an age to get our finished plates removed and deserts to... More

Great location, very nice and professional staff, good food and comfy accommodation. We were double-booked following an error made by a guest house owner and arrived at the Oyster Inn at 8pm in the busiest season in the year, everywheere fully booked. The young lady at desk was extremely nice and effective, went to great lengths to help and ended... More

Great meal here. Amazing views if you can get a window table. The sunset over the bay was fantastic. I had the seafood chowder (the best I have ever had) and my wife had the mussels. Both were brilliant. Service was very attentive.

My self and my partner just spent 7 nights and we had a wonderful holiday. We used this as a base to see the West Coast and it was perfect for the surrounding area. The rooms were clean, tastefully decorated and even though the room looked over the back of the building there was a picture window outside the room... More

Lovely meal for 3 in bar (The Glue pot) where dog was welcome and made a fuss of. Restaurant lighter and more spacious than bar but same menu served in the bar which suited us in order to accommodate the dog. Lovely views, friendly staff, family friendly. Many seafood dishes available in either starter or main course size. 3 different... More
