Eating on Mull. An update following the 2 week restrictions beginning 09/10/20.

Hello all, I had a dinner reservation for Monday the 12th of October that was cancelled following the FM announcements on the 7th of October (sad face). So this prompted me to get a list together of what Mull and Iona has to offer us all, food wise, between the dates of 9th Oct- 23rd Oct in the hope we can push some trade through their doors before the winter draws in.
