About The Tayvallich Inn

Situated in the picturesque village of Tayvallich on the shores of Loch Sween, the Inn overlooks the beautiful natural harbour of Tayvallich bay. At the heart of this small and vibrant community, the Tayvallich Inn has always been a popular meeting place for sailors, holidaymakers, more recently kayakers and all who enjoy our warm hospitality and good food.

Established over 30 years ago, the Tayvallich Inn specialises in fresh, locally caught seafood, much of which is landed on our doorstep from the cold, pristine waters of the sound of Jura. Along with seafood we serve other fresh produce, sourcing locally where ever possible.

Once again we had a delightful evening! Superb dinner - scallops perfectly cooked with a fresh tasty salad. Danny was so helpful, bringing our reservation forward by a day as the forecast wasn't going to be good for the evening we had booked. Great to see the place buzzing again!

Amazing food, lovely staff. Sitting outside felt safe and with a stunning view on a sunny but chilly evening. Thank you!

The seafood soup was so utterly delicious I'd happily drive from Edinburgh just for a bowl!

Difficult to provide accurate feedback in unusual circumstances. We ate inside so couldn’t have a glass of wine. The food was very nice though.

Only problems were due to Covid restrictions; service slow because of fewer staff, but it was very cold waiting on the decking in the hail. Staff helpful and friendly, food very good, but a bit pricey.

Food was lovely. Service quite slow but understandable and waiting staff friendly. We were outside in cold weather (so one of us could have a beer) so despite glorious views we didn’t linger. Will certainly be back.

Excellent waitress, however gap between courses was a bit slow. Other than that the food was great.

Great service and great food. Really well organised from the initial booking all the way through. Not much could be done to improve the atmosphere due to social distancing, but staff couldn’t have been better! Looking forward to returning soon!

Fabulous meal- the salmon fillet with sautéed potatoes, pea purée, samphire, lemon and dill butter was exceptional.

Charming witty staff, fabulous quality fresh fish, beautiful location. We had the fish and chips - with an excellent pinot grigio - on the outdoor terrace and sitting at a high table with matching chairs for two and were very comfortable. A lovely find and we will return again!

Excellent lunch for myself, husband and grandchildren. Warm and cosy on a stormy day. Choc Brownie was a winner.

Given all the ridiculous limitations such as no alcohol to be served indoors, I think you’re doing as well as you can. I look forward to finally being served a Bloody Mary on my next visit and a few extra specials, desserts as a regular visitor, its nice to have more choices as the season gets busier and hospitality comes back.

Food was great. Took a little while to arrive but can't beat the atmosphere. We had booked outside in order to enjoy an alcoholic drink with our meal, however it was very cold. Understand it was outside but thought there were patio heaters to take advantage of in the evenings. Hopefully next time there will be or I'll bring more layers! Enjoyable as always. Thank you!

Food was excellent! The best meal we’ve had at the Inn. Only reason for marking down the atmosphere was the outside temperature!! A lovely meal and great service (much more efficient service than visits last year), thanks very much.
