We had a delicious pub meal one evening when staying in Oban. The pub was busy but not so noisy you were overwhelmed. Menu was reasonably small but perfectly adequate. Specials were well displayed on a board - along with login and password access to wifi. Delicious food. Well presented and nicely sized portions. Definitely worth a visit.

This pub is an easy walk down from the Alexandra. It is mainly a locals pub with good service and decent beer.

This is a reasonably priced bar with helpful, friendly staff and a great food menu- also very reasonably priced. Food was served well presented and hot and was delicious! We stayed here for some time as we enjoyed the atmosphere.

I went there to eat and watch the European Cup final. The pub was crowded, as was to be expected, and food was not available. The beer/ale selection was mediocre, but the staff was friendly and the location convenient.

We were here in the first may bank holiday weekend! Staff were lovely! Prices were reasonable - considering you are in Oban! Never had any food so can't comment on that!

Small and cosy pub. But a bit dull inside, lacking in atmosphere. Prices were a little high but about average for pubs

We've been to this bar-diner a few times now and the food has always been very good. I would recommend the new 2 course fixed price menu at £10 a head with good choices, but service has been a bit on the slow side the past few visits due to only two members of staff during meal times.
