STUNNING FOOD IN A UNIQUE LOCHSIDE SETTING. Our Restaurant with its massive picture window gives all diners unparalleled, breathtaking views across Loch Craignish. With a menu to rival any restaurant in Oban, the Galley of Lorne offers delicious and stylish dining. Enjoy pre or post dinner drinks or a dram of whisky on our comfy sofas, alternatively stroll a few steps directly into the Lounge Bar in the company of our spectacular carved oak lions. We like to use local ingredients that are in season including seafood and game. Take a look at our menus to 'whet your appetite'. In addition to our superb menu, we also have menus for children's meals and our own homemade desserts and coffee menu. Furthermore, there are always a selection of 'specials' to give you even more choice.
