I’ve been coming up to the west coast of Scotland for years, it’s one of my favourite parts of the UK. I stayed in Oban and visited the isle of Mull recently, going over to Iona but eating at The Keel Row. Having read the previous review it seems to me that this person has a real chip on his/her...

We stayed at a local b and b and had a great week on Mull and Iona. However, despite managing to eat at a bistro at nearby Bunessan 3 times, had to give the above another try as that place was fully booked another night. The Keel Row has been on sale 10 years and that is reflected in the... More

I expected typical pub food, but this was amazing and fresh. I had a vegetarian curry, not too spicy and full of flavor. It was a very enjoyable dinner, priced well, casual with good food...plus a pub through the hall. :)

Having travelled through Mull, we weren't expecting to find such a good restaurant "at the end of the road". Excellent choice and quality.

We came to the Keel Row after an exhausting day when we really needed a comforting meal in homey circumstances. All six of us had meals we thoroughly enjoyed from the fish to the beef to the homemade soups. Everything was well-cooked and the service was friendly and prompt. We returned the next evening and everyone was satisfied again. Desserts... More

Our guest house was situated half way between the town of Bunessan and Fionnphort so we were hardly spoilt for choice on where to dine. When we asked the owner of the guest house which way she'd recommend going to eat in the evening, she recommended The Keel Row to us. On arrival (around 7pm) we were greeted by a... More

We ate here two nights, while visiting Iona, and had traditional fare each night. The Steak pie and fish and chips were excellent, the service was quick, and the bartender/owner was very entertaining. We had a great time.

Ate dinner here. Service was fast and friendly. Surroundings were a bit spartan. Menu was fairly pub-style but the food was well prepared and the portions large. A nice touch was that chips could always be swapped for jacket potatoes. Prices quite reasonable.
