Blackthorn _ left this review about The Holy Loch Inn

A decent sized, two room pub on the main road a couple of miles outside Dunoon.

The two bars share similar decor, with green patterned carpet, small wooden beams on the ceiling, rather garish orange painted walls, a few booths around the perimeter with button back bench seating and plenty of tables and chairs. The bar on the left had a small TV up on a shelf although this was not on, a decent looking stone built fireplace and chimney and there were several locals sat up on stools at the bar. The bar on the right was set up for dining, with all tables being laid up for food. This had a few local photos on the wall and some watercolour artwork for sale, although this seemed expensive at £150 and upwards. A small brick fireplace at one end had a stag’s head mounted on the wall above and there were numerous strings of (unlit) fairly lights stretched across the ceiling. Barmaid was pleasant and helpful, albeit a little rushed as she seemed to be the only member of staff on, trying to cover the restaurant as well as serve behind the bar.

Food choice was a little strange, shall we say. Nothing wrong with it, but having a heading “Curries” that just listed Beef, Chicken or Prawn with no indication as to what they were was unusual. Similarly a section headed “Meats” listed Lasagne, Steak Pie and Haggis. Most of the main courses were around the £9 mark, although I had a very pleasant omelette and chips for a little over a fiver.

Beer choice was disappointing, with no real ales on, just keg Ember 80/ and Belhaven Best. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.
