Just arrived on the Isle of Mull [by ferry] this offered the opportunity of an al fresco lunch before heading to our lodgings. Glorious weather encouraged us to eat outside overlooking the buzzy airstrip where two-seaters were dropping-in for refreshments from the Glasgow and Trossach areas. The pilots obviously had the bearings of this very good restaurant.

Sometimes you encounter someone in the service industry who just shouldn't be dealing with the public. The lady behind the bar here was certainly one of those people! Couldn't crack a smile if she tried. It wasn't even that busy for her stress levels to be where they were. And I hate it when bar staff add up the drinks... More

Spotted the sign from the main road and decided to call in. What a surprise! The hotel is actually Air Traffic Control for the adjacent private airstrip. Had a fish and chip supper and were even treated to a take-off (into the sunset) at the end of the meal. Fantastic.

Very tasty bar meals, friendly staff (apart from the old bloke on the front desk, who didn't seem to want to be there). Nice spacious bar, lovely views across to Ardnamurchan.

Met friends for lunch. Wanted to check out the new extension in the bar. Lovely!!! Really opens up the place and the veiw is amazing. Nice friendly relaxed atmosphere and the food was good too. The fish pie and orange cheesecake highly recommended. I will be back to sample the rest of the menu.

We dropped by randomly for an early dinner with our 18 month old son and were welcomed by the owners. We were the only people there and probably too early for most places to serve dinner bit no problem here. We ate in the bar which is brand new and well done, log cabin style with great views overtime airfield... More

This place was very convenient for dinner the night we arrived on the ferry. We only ate in the bar area but the food was delicious and quick. The views were gorgeous from the bar sitting area. The staff was helpful and friendly. Definitely worth a stop if you are going by.

Good, honest bar food served without delay, limited menu but varied enough to satisfy. Owners are hard working and care for their customers, staff are excellent. Closed for the winter now and are undergoing major expansion to the bar area which will double the size and the addition of french doors will give a very welcomed open aspect to the... More
