Aqualung . left this review about The Oban Inn

I was tipped off that this place had opened again and that it was once one of the better pubs in Oban. Inside it's a small old room with a stone floor, wooden benches, tables and stools. The small bar is in a corner to the right. There is another room upstairs that I didn't investigate.
There are two hand pumps which had Fyne Jarl and something called Oban 1790. Sadly I ordered the latter not realising it was a dross rebadged house beer, probably from Caledonian as it was in one of their glasses. It was well kept but other than that had no merit whatsoever and wasn't worth anything like the £3.80 price tag. It's an interesting old building but I wouldn't return.

As at the end of August 2011, The Oban Inn still had its pub sign and beer adverts on the outside walls, but was, unfortunately, still closed.

I agree that this WAS the best pub in Oban, but when I tried to go back to it in June 2010, it had closed down. There were shutters on the doors and windows and it was surrounded by scaffolding. I asked in the Harbour Bar across the road whether it was likely to be re-opening as a pub, but the barman didn't know. Let's hope it does.
