Wish I could review here during the day- unfortunately we've only visited at night but if the food is anything as good as the atmosphere, staff or live music, I'd have no reservations recommending the place!
Absolutely the best place to visit on Mull at night, especially during the summer where we encountered live bands, ceilidhs, karaoke and fancy dress parties... Definitely made our summer on a boat more enjoyable!!!

MacGochans is situated at the harbour end of Main Street so is probably the outermost restaurant and bar in the town at one end, Café Fish being the other end. When we were in Tobermory on a four-night stay in November the restaurant had closed for the season although meals were being served in the bar. We did hear though that the restaurant will re-open for a few weeks over the Christmas period.

We called in late afternoon for a couple of drinks and it was very quiet (as were most places at this time of year) with just a few locals sitting around the bar. Unfortunately the local cask ales were off as it was out of season. However, the room had a good bar atmosphere and there was a large wood-burning stove. Luckily I'm not adverse to indie and rock music as the jukebox was just on the noisy side and some people would have found it intrusive.

On the evening that we visited for a meal they had local grilled and split langoustines, which were superb and, at £4.50 per portion, were much better value than those in Mishdish for the same size portion at £7.50. Fancying a change from fish we chose the Beef Lasagne and Chilli Con Carne, both of which were made with beef from the local Glengorn Castle Estate. I have to say that the lasagne was one of the best I've ever had - very, very tasty! The chilli was also excellent.

All in all our meal at MacGochans was one of the best and certainly THE best value that we had during our stay in Tobermory.

Great pub grub by the harbour in this child friendly place in Tobermory, with outdoor seating. The portions are huge and this place is really good value. Recommended.

Booked a table of 10 thinking we would be seated in the main restaurant however it was closed and had to eat in the bar. Our disappointment was short lived as we were welcomed with a cosy wood burning stove. The food was good as was the service and we had a good laugh listening to some of the local's conversations.

We spent a day in Tobermory on what felt like the wettest day of the century.

The bar service was efficient and there was a great atmosphere in the place as all the rally teams were camped inside out of the rain.

I had the Haddock and Chips and they were well above average. The other food looked great and I felt a little jealous when I seen the burgers. Definately will visit again on what I hope will be a dry visit next time.
