We enjoyed 2 great breakfasts and 2 fantastic taster menus on a 5pm DBB deal. In the morning, a wide selection of cereals, juices, fruits and hot options awaits. Free-range eggs with runny yolks competed with herby sausages, sliced haggis, smoked bacon, and Stornoway black pudding. Very good first impression from the chef - and the service team could not...

Good restaurant a little further out on Oban’s waterfront, serving conventional, traditional dishes and seafood. We popped in as a couple for a dinner on a special occasion and it was great for an unfussy, quality meal without being particularly exciting. The decor is a bit of a subtle mix of hunting lodge and nautical, but is basically warm and... More

I had the oysters to start and they were lovely and fresh. I really enjoyed my chowder main course. My partner said his steak main course was very good, although not top notch, and was a very plentiful portion. My son, who is a chef, enjoyed the langoustine starter but was not so keen on the scallop main. The service... More

Great choice of food and breakfast was served to you, the 6 course tasting menu was varied and if you were on a DBB break and didn't like anything on this menu, you could choose something off the a la carte at half price. The eggs Benedict for breakfast were amazing
