We popped in for a drink and something to eat. We were pleased that we did, it was worth a walk up the hill! The place was busy but we found a table, the staff were friendly. We would go again, the Chlachain Inn is to be recommended

Great food. Great beer, great owners and staff. Fresh fish was fantastic. It's a busy place but will always fit you in when they can. 3rd visit and it's keeps getting better and better! Can't wait to come back!
