“Wee Drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch, menu ok, if not a little expensive. Decided just to have a drink instead, staff attentive and polite, would go back again.

Great menu even at lunch time. The staff are wonderful, friendly and can never do enough for you. Good meeting place for travellers and locals alike. Straight across the road from the marina and port.

“Spot on fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Our first impression was of a fairly standard pub attached to a hotel but our experience was far from that.
The staff were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and accommodated our wee one without fuss. The drink selection is decent though far from exhaustive (better than many west coast pubs though!) and you can get a decent pint of proper beer.
The lunch menu isn't massive and largely 'standard' but this is not a bad thing as they clearly play to their strengths. My dad and I opted for fish and chips which came as a good sized portion in crispy batter with great chunky skin-on chips - very tasty and filling. My wife and mum opted for the haggis nachos and were very pleasantly surprised (the barman tried to convince them to go for the small portion but they were having none of it - he was right as they were massive) - a good balance of quality haggis, whisky sauce, melted cheese and nicely seasoned tortilla chips (with complimentary spices rather than standard tex-mex flavour)
Overall we were very satisfied with our meal and would return for another lunch.
