Winter Opening Hours

Winter has definitely arrived in Argyll. Plenty wind and rain but every so often we get a cold crisp day when the views go on forever and there's a sprinkling of snow on the hills.

The restaurant is now closed for the season however the tearoom and bar are open Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm (last orders 2.45pm) and the bar is open Mon & Thurs eve 7.30pm-late and Fri & Sat eve 6pm-late. On a Thursday evening we usually have a food theme night where everyone brings a dish (sweet or savoury) and we all sit down and share. Check out the facebook page and come and join us. Friday night is darts night and the winter league is already underway. 8 teams from the three pubs (Puffer, Oyster & T&T)are taking part this year so come along and cheer them on. It's all good fun with quite a lot of us not exactly the greatest darts players!

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more what's going on through the winter and we will be updating this page soon with our festive opening hours and theme nights.

Hampers a go go...

It's all go in the kitchen as we prepare all the jams, chutneys, cakes & confectionery ready for the Christmas Hamper orders. This year we're making our own tablet as an added choice for customers. We can assure you it is very yummy after extensive taste trials....just to make sure of course!

Our new award winning Chilli Jam will also be making its first appearance in our hamper selection. Scooping a 1 star gold at the Great Taste Awards 2013 this is a Chilli Jam full of warmth and flavour but without the fiery heat. It truly is the new funky ketchup!

Check out our hamper page for a special present for Christmas. Our hampers feature only the finest Easdale and Argyll goodies!
