Booked last minute but wasn’t told there was a time limit on our table until we were seated. As a consequence by the time we were to ready to order desert it was obvious we would be overstaying our time limit, asked for the bill but that took twenty minutes to arrive !!

We are are young couple with a wee dog and stopped for some lunch. Directed to the bar area. Coffees were nice and brought out promptly. Food was a Cullen skink for each of us and a club sandwich to share. The soup was awful. Bland soup that looked like tinned watery cream soup with a few chunks of flavourless fish. One of the worst I have had. The sandwich was quite good but nothing memorable. All in about £28 so quite expensive for the quality.

Haven’t been here for a while but we needed a break out of Covid, and the Creggans Inn, Strachur was highly recommended by a friend who knows the area. I cannot speak highly enough of this historic country Inn which is becoming a national treasure. The owners Archie and Jill have pulled out all the stops here with beautiful, spotless accomodation, excellent food and service which come with stunning views over Loch Fyne..... try it, you won’t be disappointed.

We were really pleased to return to our favourite hotel, after the long drawn out lock down. We never fail to be satisfied with the lovely room that is given to us for our dog occupancy, great views with lovely homely touches. We felt very Safe in the environment given the current situation. Food and service were outstanding. Thank you to all of the staff.

I was staying in a local cottage for a few days and was excited to go back to The Creggans as i had eaten there about a decade ago and it was fantastic. I took my 2 kids age 9 and 11 for a bar meal. I cannot describe how poor the food was. I would go so far as to say it was utterly disgusting. My kids ordered chicken nuggets and chips - which are hard to do wrong...but they managed. The batter was gloopy and stodgy with an odd taste and the chips revolting and, even by my children's broad standards... inedible. I ordered scallops for a starter that were expensive- and similarly revolting and not at all how they were described on the menu. I then ordered a burger - again difficult to do wrong- but they managed to make it revolting - even the bun was stale. To top it off service was extremely slow and shoddy and the bill at the end was nearly 60 quid. I cannot describe how disappointed i was with this experience. I fail to see how the owners can not be aware how poor the food and service are and why they have not reflected on previous similar feedback on tripadvisor. The Creggans is a lovely building in a lovely part of the world and has a great history. It is in everyones interests that it serves good food and gets good reviews. How they could get simple bar food so wrong to the point of it being practically inedible is beyond me. The way that the hotel and food is marketed is really good and i would love for it to live up to what it promises...but my experience really was utterly dreadful and with regret i will not be returning any time soon.
