A warm welcome & a cold pint.

Now open!

Whether you've stumbled in the door looking for a cold pint after completing a munro, want to sip fizz on a celebration holiday, or are just over in between ferries looking to quench your thirst on a hot day, the Old Forge bar has something for everyone. 

Cask ales and draught beer & cider come as standard, along with a wide range of craft beers, spirits, malt whiskeys and soft drinks for the weans. We aim to showcase all that Scotland has to offer and support local. 

So come away in and see what we've got. 


Upcoming Sunday Session dates:

Sun 5th & 19th June. 6-10pm

Sun 3rd, 17th & 31st July. 6-10pm

When the community took ownership of the pub, one of things that a lot of folk wanted to see return was music sessions. In days gone by the Old Forge was renowned for almighty sessions - at times 10 or 20 musicians squeezed around a couple of tables, the music fierce, the craic on high form, and tunes and songs filling the air until the wee small hours. 

We now have a regular, fortnightly schedule of Sunday Sessions - check out the dates on our Facebook event page.  If you're coming to the pub at another time and play an instrument please feel free to get a spontaneous session going, or pop us a message and we'll put the word round the locals to see who else can join in.

The Restaurant

The kitchen is in a bad state at the moment and requires significant upgrading, therefore at present we will serving drinks-only.



We will be opening on a drinks-only basis for the time being - this will allow us to complete essential refurbishment works on the kitchen. If you have made a restaurant booking for 2022 please note that regardless of when in the year it is, we have decided to cancel all reservations and start a fresh booking system once we have the kitchen ready so as not to disappoint anyone if renovations take a while. 


We recently had our moorings dived and surveyed, and currently have six available for use.

Please get in touch via enquiries@theoldforge.co.uk if you would like more info.
