Great wee bar. Fantastic staff, welcome atmosphere. I tend to only go to watch the football there but do so regularly. There is always entertainment on weekends.

My local, and the best place in town. My grandfathers favourite pub! Full of locals and tourists alike, and amazing banter. Wouldn’t drink anywhere else. Love it! Most amazing and friendly staff too, couldn’t fault them

Still the friendliest staff and locals in Oban. Probably the best pint of Guinness in town, and they also serve a wide range of beer and whiskies. Well worth a visit.

If you want a great night.. go here and strike up a conversation with some locals... make sure you buy everyone a round and you will be sure to have a great night. One of the best nights in my three weeks in Scotland.
