“Nice place to wait for a Ferry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Having missed the 5 o clock ferry to Oban we had a couple of hours to kill so we decided to go for a beer and a bite to eat whilst waiting on the ferry. The beer was very good and so was the food 5 Haddock and chips with home made tartar sauce appeared in an instant and went down a treat. We had the meal Al Fresco in a glorious June day which added to the eating experience. Top tip is make your own chips, the pub boasts homemade Tartar Sauce and Beer Battered Haddock. but cheapened it by serving frozen chips and at almost a tenner for a fish supper I would expect them to make their own chips, otherwise it was very nice and I would go back again.

Dear FigoSanquhar,

Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate all the feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your fish and visit to the Inn. We do not serve frozen chips however, they are the fresh chilled variety. Unfortunately due to the nature of our business, the volume of chips sold and lack of space we are unable to do chips ourselves. We are sorry that the chips did not reach the standard you would have expected and we would love to welcome you back to the inn.

Many thanks and kind regards,
Tiina Penman

The food in the Craignure Inn is excellent and reasonable priced. The Guinness was one of the best pints I have tasted for a while!

“Fine if you have time to kill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

Food was decent as was the menu. Got our main course quickly but waited 30 mins for dessert. The busy bar meals area was taking around 40 minutes to serve up main courses. Take some good reading material or good company or save up your chat all day for the meal... you'll have loads of time to spend on them. This was for bar meals not the restaurant. Maybe they were short staffed but unlike other reviewers I cannot give this five stars.

Thank you very much for your review and feedback. I do apologise for the delays you experienced on the night with our food and service but we were caught by having a busier night than expected. I'm glad the bar menu and food was to your liking.
I'd like to point out that you ate in our bar side as you suspected as our restaurant which is in the other end of the inn was not open yet for the season.
The reviewers have opened two 'pages' within Tripadvisor, one for the Craignure Inn and one for our Old Pier restaurant. You posted your comment under the restaurant which didn't open until Easter.
Thank you again for your feedback which we greatly value.
