A double win for The Oban Inn

The pub reopened in 2016

THE Oban Inn has won a top CAMRA award for the second year running – less than three years after the pub reopened.

The historic inn, which dates from 1790, was named CAMRA’s Argyll Pub of the Year for 2019 and was presented with the award last month.

It’s the second year in a row The Oban Inn has taken the title and comes less than three years after Steven Shaw and Maire Lynch, who previously owned the pub between 1979 and 1986, brought the historic inn back to life in November 2016 after a nine-year closure.

Steven told SLTN: “It’s great to win it for a second year – and in our third year of the pub. It’s good to get the recognition; it’s great for the staff.”
