From the outside, as much as I hate to judge, it doesn't look like much. We headed here for dinner and are so glad we did. It's first come first serve and you can't book so there may be a wait, but grab a drink and sit in the bar with the locals who are full of hebridian hospitality. We... More

We rushed back from Iona to get a table when the restaurant opened at 6 (they don't take bookings). When i asked if we could eat in the restaurant (which was completely empty) the waitress said that we would have a 20 minute wait and then we should be ok. Perplexed we sat in the bar and were seated in... More

Beer selection is wofull the staff are there at least. If it wasn't for it being the only pub why would you bother. Prices are good but you couldn't charge more for this. Caught in a time trap and I think they know. Kid friendly until 9 after that god knows what they do to the kids;)

You obviously had a bad experience with us, however we do have a large selection of beer and lager maybe the staff did not make you aware. Mcewans lager, fosters and sages, mcewans 80% Guinness, and symonds cider. We also have 2 real ales both Scottish plus a good selection of bottled beer, cider and soft drinks. So I am... More

Stopped off for coffee/tea on the way around the rest of the Isle of Mull. Really nice atmosphere inside and very pleasant service. Convenient for the Iona Ferry also.

Another place that we always go back to. Friendly staff, a great view and a good menu choice. My only problem is the size of the portions, I have yet to clear my plate!! No advance booking but easy enough to get a table if you turn up soon after the restaurant opens at 6.00 pm.

Great selection of local beers, the food could be a little better although I have tasted a lot worse. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We spent a week self catering in the village, with a 7 year old . It was disappointing to find that The Keel Row did not take bookings and did not open until 6pm. However the take-away service suited us very well - we ordered late afternoon and collected it around 6pm. Portions generous and almost too much for us... More

Really enjoyed meals here. With not a lot of choice in Fionnphort, we were concerned at first. All hesitation was put aside with the tasty meals, lovely puddings, and friendly service. Would happily eat there again.
