user reviews of Markie Dans, Oban

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

To be honest, judging by the customers standing outside, most pubs in Oban looked like they would cut your throat rather than sell you a drink. We went to Mackie Dan's as it was a few steps from our hotel. They sold a pleasant pint of real ale, named after McGaig's folly. The interior was quite interesting, with various items on the wall. Not cheap - London prices - but that seemed to be the norm for Oban. The machines in the toilets, selling everything from vibrators to viagra gave me and the wife a good laugh.

Not the cheapest pints in the world, but fairly low for many of the pubs in Oban. A nice atmosphere and the only pub you can sit outside in, in the sun on a nice day.

But the music is on every weekend and there is usually a very good mix of people both foreign and local. Would recommend for those coming to oban.

�3.05 for a pint of ale. !!!
But I found the atmosphere to be good on a Friday night, live music was of good quality and we got on with the locals on our first visit, will go back but might take a hip flask !

While I was staggered at how great pubs through the United Kingdom were, I was shocked at the rudeness displayed by the proprietor and staff of this establishment. My tour stopped at this pub and we spent an evening there during which time I tipped the waitress for every single drink and tipped well. At closing time she came over and grabbed my drink and a friends and poured them out after only selling them to us a minute before. When we protested to the owner she made racist remarks about our nationality and used foul language. She also tried to encourage the locals (who were invited to stay after hours) to take us outside and use physical violence on us. We were very shocked as until that moment our experience with British pubs had been fantastic. The staff even lied about getting tips from us and also used language. Finally we called her bluff and stated that we would call the police if she would not refund our money at which point she relented and gave us a refund of our last two drinks. We then departed to the sound of her racist remarks about our nationality.
