My friend, who is from Oban, loves this place. He brought my group of visiting friends here for traditional Scottish fare. We were not disappointed! Great beers and all of the food was excellent. Mussels, Chicken and Haggis, Smoked Salmon. We ate so much we chose to forego dessert. Lots of funa nd a great pub atmosphere. Can't wait to... More

The bar in the Lorne is a great example of classic pub architecture as it dominates the centre of the single large room with seating all around the outside making it easy to get served. The lunchtime food is good typical pub grub and the fish and chips in particular was excellent. Real ales are on tap too.

Always forget about here! Although when I do get to visit for lunch it's always amazing! No matter what time of day the food is predictably good!! Always enjoy eating in this place and prices are good too!!

As a lone female traveller it is really important to me to be able to feel relaxed in a bar/restaurant and as I take my dog on holiday with me I really appreciate when she is welcomed in to a shop/bar with me. The bonus here was the food was absolutely superb. Staff were pleasant and the atmosphere was lovely.... More

We went for dinner last night and I had one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. My husband had the seabass and scallops on vegetable and to motor risotto and it was delicious. The... More

Tried a few different types of Scottish whisky here. Most were reasonably priced. There wasn't much of an atmosphere in the place when I went, mostly young staff hanging around chatting with bad pop music in the background.
