Absolutely one of the best Sunday lunches we’ve had anywhere! Great food smoked trout and ham terrine were fab, pork belly and ox cheek cooked to perfection 💪, cauliflower cheese and other sides perfectly balanced. Sticky toffee pudding which we really didn’t need at this point was the best! Ass kicking wine 🍷😉 a fitting tipple. Superb! Well done the kitchen!. We will be back and bringing friends! @jayrayner1.. you would love it

Had Sunday lunch here with family. We were first to arrive so ordered drinks my G&T definitely didn’t arrive premixed. Most of us had the roast of stuffed belly pork, which had lovely crisp tasty crackling. Vegetables consisted of cabbage, broccoli, mashed swede and carrot, cauliflower cheese and roast potatoes all in very ample portions. The roast potatoes are some of the best ones I’ve had in very long time. Only gripe was had to ask for more gravy, it was very watery and let the meal down a bit. Need to improve with the gravy it was far too thin. The plum crumble was piping hot and delicious. Decor is what I would call typical old fashioned Scottish

Wonderful food, with really generous portions. The venison pie was fantastic, as was the vegetarian burger. Very good service. Good menu choices, and catered well for vegetarians/vegans also. The dining room itself has a lovely atmosphere, with lovely decor.

I wanted to write a good review about this place given it has struggled with covid closures, but they poorly managed their comeback. Booked this place in April for an August reservation (17th) and was looking forward to some good food based on what was advertised on their website. We arrived in Taynuilt on the 11th August and were dismayed to see that there was a sign outside the pub saying it was closed until the 22nd August due to covid. Not hearing from the pub, we assumed the reservation was cancelled and booked elsewhere in Oban. Then suddenly, the day of the 17th came round and we saw a sign outside the pub saying that they were now open (given that I'd booked this back in April, a call to let us know would have been nice). Anyway, after I called the pub to confirm the reservation, we went ahead with our booking. On arrival we were seated at our table in quite a dark room and there were a lot of other tables around us - we did feel very squished in. The waitress who greeted us told us straight away that there was only one chef on that night so "there'd be quite a wait" between courses. I was a bit miffed this hadn't been mentioned previously when I spoke to them on the phone earlier in the day. There was a long wait between the main and dessert in the end (we thought they'd forgotten us), but for our starters and between the starters and main it was an ok wait. There was very little selection on the menu, 3 options for starters, 3 (maybe 4) for mains and 3 dessert options. None of the options particularly looked appealing. The prices were extortionate though so we expected amazing food. My husband and I had mushrooms and whitebait (there wasn't much in the way of mushrooms and the whitebait was ok) and for the main I had fish and chips (for want of there not being anything else I fancied). It was basic pub fare with fancy descriptions. My husband and daughter had the bacon joint which was basically a piece of meat with mashed potato and carrots. If memory serves me right, this was the most expensive thing on the menu at I think £27 (but now I'm questioning my memory as it seems so high!)... For dessert I had the chocolate nemesis which was nice, but again not worth the price. I appreciate that people might be struggling due to covid but it was very expensive for what it was. We went to Eeusk in the centre of Oban a couple of days later (which is a highly rated seafood restaurant) and only spent £10 more in there for what was a vastly superior experience to what we got at the Taynuilt Inn.
