Romantic Breaks at The Galley of Lorne Inn, Ardfern by Oban
The perfect location for short breaks exploring Argyll and the Islands of Scotland's West Coast

Whisk yourself away to our award winning 17th Century Drovers Inn nestled on the lochside in the picturesque village of Ardfern, on Scotland's dramatic west coast.

Spend your days exploring castles, beaches and gardens. Perhaps take a woodland walk or discover a Hebridean Island or two from nearby Oban Harbour.

After a full days adventure, relax on our lochside sundeck perhaps with a fine wine, whisky or real ale whilst contemplating whether to have the freshly landed seafood or the wonderful local beef for tonight's dinner.

And when the day is done, retire to your bedroom safe in the knowledge that you've had a brilliant day...

The Public Bar
Our Public Bar is in the oldest part of the Inn circa. 1680 and is a characterful place to meet, have a drink and chat with friends. Enjoy a meal by the roaring fire or meet the locals who frequent the bar.

We also have an outdoor area where you can enjoy your meal and drinks, supplemented with a spectacular view of Loch Craignish.

As a new addition this year, we also offer free wireless internet in all of our public areas as well as our guests bedrooms.

The Galley of Lorne Inn - Lounge Bar
Our Lounge Bar is very welcoming indeed and we invite you to join us there perhaps for a pre-dinner drink or a night out. We have a great range of spirits, beers, wine and whisky to choose from. It's a warm, friendly setting which is perfect for party or get together, and a superb place to relax before or after dinner.

We also offer free wireless internet in all of our public areas as well as our guests bedrooms.

The Restaurant
In 2005 we opened our newly constructed Restaurant and Function Room with its massive picture window giving all diners unparalleled, breathtaking views across Loch Craignish. Our restaurant is bright, friendly and unusually spacious, capable of seating 100 guests for events.

With a menu to rival any restaurant in Oban, the Galley of Lorne offers delicious and stylish dining. You stroll a few steps directly into the comfortable Lounge Bar to enjoy a drink before and/or after your meal in the company of our spectacular carved oak lions.

We like to use local ingredients that are in season including seafood and game. Take a look at our SAMPLE MENUS to 'whet your appetite'. However, please note that the main menu is available during the height of the season and that during autumn and winter it is necessary to reduce our menu according to demand and availability.

In addition to our superb menu, we also have menus for children's meals and our own homemade desserts and coffee menu. Furthermore, there are always a selection of 'specials' to give you even more choice.
