Oak Tree Inn, Balmaha

Remember the cosy wee pub I promised to tell you about?
The one which brought us back to life after our hypothermic baltic wakeboarding experience??
Well, here it is finally!!

Welcome to the pub at Oak Tree Inn, Balmaha, Scotland
Cozy pub, wood burning fireplace & grandpa clocks & knick knacks galore!
 I loved all the clocks and crazy knick knacks everywhere!! This is how a pub is supposed to be.. especially a small town pub... See that old skool phone on the wall too?? Awesome!!
 Here is another crazy old phone! I would love one of these at home.. especially if they still worked!

The mister had the special - Pork belly with black pudding.. it was yummy!
I had a bacon burger.. it was yummy also... and the fries were scrumptious!!
Crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside! My fave!!
Plenty of sauce & plenty of bacon!! NOMMY!!
I thought I had more photos of the interior, but my camera says no... If you're ever in the area, stop in for a bite! The service wasn't overly attentive, but it never is at pubs... they somehow forgot to put the mister's order in, so he had to wait for his food (he had the option to order something else, but chose to wait).. so they gave us a wee discount which was much appreciated... I would happily go back for a bite if we're ever in the area again. Prices were typical pub prices.. fairly reasonable for what you get. The staff for the guesthouse all seemed really helpful and friendly, I saw them helping carry suitcases and giving directions and suggestions to people as they came and went..  Can't tell you about the rooms but the service sure seemed top notch!

Happy Hump Day!!


  1. I love the decor and your burger looks amazing! Bacon burgers are definitely always a good choice! The mister's food looks good too, but I'm a bit scared of black pudding! It just doesn't look appetizing, I'm sure it's delicious, I'm just scared of it! Haha!

  2. The pub was so cute! If we'd got the table by the fire, we probably woulda had to spend the night! HAHA..

    Black pudding.. it tastes a bit like a strong sausage.. it's yummy but you're right that it doesn't look particularly appetising!!


  3. That pub is soooo cute and that bacon burger looks so good!
