Colin Walker left this review about The Tartan Tavern

The Tartan Tavern is one of the first pubs that you meet when entering Oban from the South. Very traditional local pub that serves Belhaven Best, Tennent’s Lager, Stella, Strongbow & Maltsmiths an American style IPA. On the pavement outside the pub is a steel cover which opens to allow barrels to be dropped into the cellar. This steel cover has drilled out holes to show the pubs name.

I was pleased to discover that this has re-opened, as it was always one of my favourite Oban pubs. Although it has been refurbished, it hasn't changed fundamentally and is still the same welcoming and unpretentious local it was before. Prices are reasonable, with Guinness at £3.50 a pint and Tennent's lager at £3.10. McEwan's Export, Caledonia Best and Heverlee lager are also on draught.

Now under new ownership the pub has been decorated well, a nice place for a pint, with friendly staff, and a good bunch of locals, and if you wish to eat you can use the oban steakhouse across the road.:-)
