Me and my wife called in on a wet Tuesday night in the middle of summer, we had a great friendly welcome and a bit of a laugh with the bar staff. The pub was clean and the juke box was a classic with some of our old fav on it, well woth having a drink in there.

Stopped in Coasters after a long hot cycle. We had a lovely lunch quickly prepared and served. Good value for quality food. Just what we needed before we headed back up route 78 (which is also highly recommended!)

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.
