We visited this pub a few times on our recent visit to Mull. It was friendly, staff were chatty and the local banter was funny. We ate here once and the food was lovely. Great choice of home made dishes very reasonably priced. The owner/chef...More

This is good old bar, no aires or graces but friendly staff, good prices and good selection. The interior was a bit dated but I kind of liked it.

We went on the recommendation of a lot of others. Good tasty food, menu changes daily, good value for money, surroundings are in need of sprucing up but on the whole food was great.

The place is rather run down but serves good pub grub at fair prices compared to rest of places to eat. Friendly staff and frequented by the locals
