“Lemon sole that melts!”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

As always a wonderful - gastronomic delight! Seriously the lemon sole was 'Devine'- I have never tasted anything so good. Perfect.

Waitress was lovely chatty and friendly but efficient and discreet. Gregor (the Manager) is wonderful so nice and helpful but very professional. A peaceful setting with a great atmosphere - leaves you feeling very rested and chilled!

Will of course return - searching diary for excuses to book again!!

Excellent value for money,again as always, to Gregor and his great team with thanks :). This man should get a big Christmas bonus.

“Awesome Oban Dining Experience !!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is our third time dining at the Manor House Hotel Restaurant and it did not disappoint, the food was excellent. The dining room is really nice old worldly and has a lovely atmosphere. We had the set 5 course menu and every course was excellent and beautifully presented, each course had a nice portion size so you can manage the 5 courses. The service was faultless and loved that the coffee and petite fours was served in a comfy lounge with a real fire. The only thing I did not love was the bar, it could do with bit of decoration and lacked a bit of atmosphere but overall loved the whole experience and will definitely go again.

“Fabulous Views, Food and Staff”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We have visited here for coffee and shortbread on numerous occasions. Cafetiere for two gives you at least two cups of coffee each and the shortbread is to die for and all for a VERY reasonable charge. We had lunch there a couple of weeks ago - open sandwiches - and it was fab. Quite a sizeable helping so the next time we will have one to share. Hope to visit some time soon and stay over so that we can sample what we are sure will be a wonderful dinner. Staff are always so very pleasant and the general atmosphere of the hotel is very relaxing.

“Pleasant ambience, fine food”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

My wife and I were staying in Oban last week and had lunch here with our relatives who live nearby. The service was excellent and the atmosphere in the bar peaceful. Nice view over the bay. Three of us had fish - two had deep fried haddock and I had the sole fillets. We all felt that the portions were very small even though it was lunchtime and not a main evening meal. The plain ice cream is superb (probably homemade) and an alternative to the more expensive desserts. Not to be missed. Car parking is easy and off road.
