The Gal­ley of Lorne Inn

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

The Gal­ley of Lorne Inn has gained a rep­u­ta­tion as one of Ar­gyll’s best restau­rants for its ex­cel­lent food and drink, show­ing imag­i­na­tion and tra­di­tion side by side. Tucked away in the pretty vil­lage of Ard­fern, just over half an hour’s drive from Oban, the inn sits on the wa­ter­side at Loch Craig­nish and en­joys breath­tak­ing views over the sea to the misty isle of Jura on the hori­zon. The inn’s menu cov­ers all of their din­ing ar­eas, the public bar for a tra­di­tional set­ting, the lounge bar where tra­di­tional meets mod­ern, the restau­rant which presents a re­lax­ing and in­for­mal at­mos­phere with the most won­der­ful views along Loch Craig­nish, and fi­nally the beer gar­den and sun­deck for those who pre­fer to eat al­fresco. Their use of fresh lo­cal in­gre­di­ents has proven to be very pop­u­lar, es­pe­cially their range of meat and fish dishes. They also grow sea­sonal pro­duce in their poly­tun­nel; at least one in­gre­di­ent in ev­ery dish will have come from their home grown sup­ply dur­ing the main sea­son. Dishes to look out for in­clude their crock of fresh west coast mus­sels with de­li­cious home-made bread, their home-smoked meat plat­ter with bread and herb dip­ping oil, the Gal­ley Burger, which takes some eat­ing, and their niçoise- style Se­abass Salad. Wash your meal down with one of their eclec­tic mix of real ales or a crisp glass of wine. Great spot for lunch, too, with plenty of park­ing on site.
