The good pub guide review

The stylish modern décor of this beautifully refurbished 18th-c inn (once a trading post) includes tartan-upholstered chairs and wall seats around simple tables on bare floorboards, grey and white paintwork and a woodburning stove. More tartan is used on the high chairs against the counter in the bar, where they keep Fyne Ales Easy Trail on handpump, nine wines by the glass, Scottish gins and several malt whiskies. The atmosphere throughout is relaxed and friendly. A dining room leads off and is similarly furnished, with up-to-date lighting and local artwork on planked walls. Outside in front of the inn are benches and tables, with picnic-sets arranged on the grass opposite. The three contemporary bedrooms are warm and comfortable; one of them, with a bunk bed, is suitable for families; breakfasts are highly rated. It's a beautiful drive to reach the inn along Loch Awe and then on to Ardanaiseig Gardens, and there's good walking, cycling and fishing nearby.

The good pub guide food review

Enjoyable food includes lunchtime sandwiches, scotch egg with celeriac rémoulade and watercress, smoked fish board with toasted sourdough and lemon, vegetable burger with red onion, sriracha mayo and fries, pan-fried lemon sole with caper and lemon butter and samphire, chicken and ham pie with chantenay carrots and new potatoes, beer-battered haddock and fries, pea, mint and ricotta risotto, and puddings such as chocolate ganache pot and Scottish cheeseboard with chutney and oatcakes.
