Description: At the Glenforsa the attitude to food is one of simplicity. Good food, cooked well and presented in comfortable surroundings - not forgetting quality wines!The food is mainly seasonal and the Glenforsa try to utilise the best that Scotland has to offer, whether it be Venison from Mull or Scallops from Tobermory, aiming to give customers an authentic taste of good, local food.

A fascinating place, aviation-oriented, the owners are pilots. The curious thing is that food is actually delicious, and if you add the owners are charming, that's enough to recommend it warmly.

On our first full day on the island, a beautiful Sunday, we popped in to the hotel for a coffee but were tempted by the lunch.
Seated outside, we were surprised to be treated to the sight of various small aircraft taking off and landing, for the rest of the afternoon, on the small airstrip directly in front of us.
Several coffees later, with the sun going down, we finally left, having had a great afternoon. The lunch and drinks were good too!
Highly recommended.

We chose the Glenforsa hotel reataurant as it was recommended. We ordered a variety of main courses in the bar which arrived less than 10 minutes after ordering. The portions were all children sized compared to everything else we ate on the island of Mull but still for a very full price. The fish unfortunately tasted slightly off and burgers were a very limited size and also over cooked. This was our worst meal on Mull and we left quickly afterwards... It also took 15 minutes to pay at the bar due to a lack of staff. The high point of the meal was the take off of a bi-plane behind the hotel. Unfortunately a place to avoid!

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your bar meal at the Glenforsa, all of our dishes are prepared from fresh locally sourced ingredients including fish caught daily from our own boat and produce from our poly tunnel. Our burgers are made daily by our chef from best Scottish Beef or Mull Venison.

I only came here for the restaurant but, despite the slightly unprepossessing exterior, this was a cosy and friendly hotel. A lovely bar/restaurant with fantastic views served proper fresh coffee and delicious classic pub food. I only wished we'd been staying longer - next time I'll book a room!
