Description: At the Glenforsa the attitude to food is one of simplicity. Good food, cooked well and presented in comfortable surroundings - not forgetting quality wines!The food is mainly seasonal and the Glenforsa try to utilise the best that Scotland has to offer, whether it be Venison from Mull or Scallops from Tobermory, aiming to give customers an authentic taste of good, local food.

I had seen a programme on TV where a man flew a small plane up the west coast of Scotland and landed at an airstrip on Mull. As we passed the Glenforsa Hotel the name rang a bell and so we decided to stop for a coffee late morning. The Hotel is quite rustic and we had sticky toffee pudding & coffee in a dining room overlooking the water and a small grass airstrip. It was fairly quiet. We didn't wait long and the food was lovely. We were treated to a small plane landing and then another taking off a short while afterwards. Definitely worth a stop off if you are touring. The Hotel is en route from the Fishnish Ferry to Tobermorry and is a quieter stop off point for something to eat rather than waiting till you get to Tobermorry which is full of tourists!

If you need an instant, ordinary meal then it's fine. The steak pie and fish pie arrived in less than 5 minutes, so you know it's probably just come out of the microwave. Friendly staff, but I wouldn't recommend it other than for a quick meal

Thank you for taking the time to review your bar meal at Glenforsa.
We do have a microwave in our kitchen that is used exclusively for preparing sticky toffee pudding, all other dishes are freshly prepared for each service by our kitchen team, who at this time of the season after preparing thousands of meals are pretty good at it!
We use as much of the available high quality fresh local produce as possible, including our own free range eggs, salads from our walled garden and fresh fish caught daily from our own boat. In addition to our bar menu our al a carte restaurant offers fresh local Langoustines, Mussels etc all supplied by Mull fishermen.
Perhaps you will consider visiting us again and experiencing what else our menus have to offer.

Had dinner in the bar for two nights. Very good standard of food and a super view.
I recommend the steak and Guinness pie but my wife was disappointed with the fish pie because it did not have a crust and therefore in her view it is not a pie!
