The Barn - Rustic Bar and Restaurant

Once a cattle byre and still retaining many rustic features, the award winning* Barn Bar has been a favourite for many years with visitors and locals alike who come to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and great pub grub. We are situated in a peaceful and beautiful glen only minutes from Oban, with outside tables and a covered patio to relax and enjoy the scenery.

We offer fresh home made meals using local produce. Our 'Taste our Best' blackboard changes regularly (plenty of fresh shellfish at the weekends) and  we're proud to offer over 40% Scottish produce using local suppliers where possible.

Families are welcomed and children have their own menu, there's lots of outdoor space to run around and boardgames and a playpark. Pets are also welcome in the pub - on a lead please - treats and water freely available!

Local musicians hold a traditional music session on Sunday afternoons (4.30-8.00pm) all year round. We're open all year but from November to March we only open at weekends and holidays.
