It closed in early 2015. We booked a holiday let nearby and were looking forward to visiting The Melvaig Inn. Fortunately we found out before we went and were prepared (with loads of booze in the car!)

I've gone to the Melvaig Inn on my last two visits to Gairloch and really enjoyed their Friday night fish suppers. I was so disappointed to find out this week that they have now closed down.

We chose the Melvaig Inn for a family birthday celebration which nine of us (from teenagers to grandparents) all enjoyed. It is a bit of a drive from Gairloch but on arrival the owner welcomed us warmly. The word quirky has been used several times...More

It was six years since we holidayed in this part of Scotland and discovered the Melvaig Inn - and when we returned recently, we were delighted to find it just as welcoming and characterful. If anything, the inn was even friendlier and the food even...More

A very warm welcoming pub with an interesting collection of vinyl records, some of which were played by the bar man. There's also an eclectic mix of artifacts and memorabilia around the pub. The beers were well kept and the food was quite plain fayre;...More
