Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent food and excellent, friendly service! We had a lovely meal here. The meat was cooked to perfection, and served with tasty veg, and the desserts were delicious. Bring your own bottle. Definitely recommend!

Wonderful meal! The slow cooked lamb (locally sourced) was truly fantastic and the best meal we had during our whole stay in Arran. We were allowed to dine outside with our dog beside us and on a lovely evening, with the incredible views and friendly...service, nothing could be finer.More

Been coming to this family owned restaurant for almost 25 years on our annual trips to beautiful Arran. Had a lovely welcome as always. Food is always fresh, tasty and good value with lots of regular choices and some specials too. Can't wait to return...next year. We really do not understand the 3 negative reviews which were all written very close together.More

With so many good reviews and only the couple of recent poor ones we thought, incorrectly, we’d be OK… Well below average unfortunately for the price. Barely cooked peas, anaemic cheap fries and poor batter on the fish. Thought we’d played it safe with fish...and chips…. Left quickly and very unsatisfied. :-(More

Poor quality food. Presentation amateurish. Expensive for what was presented to us. The fact that our hot meal was delivered to the table within a few minutes speaks volumes. We will never return for an evening meal.

We have been to the lighthouse several times over the years, It has got progressively worse. From reasonable to truly diabolical. The site is wonderful but the food it's amateurish at best. I usually judge food by asking myself if i could have done better....If I had produced the food we were served on our last visit i would have had to apologise to my partner from pure shame. We will not be returning until the business changes hands.More

This is a lovely family friendly restaurant on the sea shore on the less touristy west side of Arran. The range of delicious but more adventurous menu choices was impressive ( venison steak, stuffed pheasant breast) but also great classics super fresh battered haddock and...chips. A very budget friendly kids menu available too (£9 for two courses) and I noticed several families with little ones. It's great home style cooking but delicious local produce .haggis nuggets we're superb! And as if it couldn't get any better it's BYOB on the alcohol which saves a bit if you're on a budget. The manager was really welcoming and friendly, very understanding of our son who is very particular about his food. You MUST book in advance though for evening sit down in summer it seems. Definitely worth a try especially if you've done Brodick and want a change!!! We had an excellent experience.More

Staff was all friendly and very welcoming on arrival at this restaurant. The service was very good. The food was lovely, me and my wife enjoyed the food very much. You have to take your own alcohol as they don't serve it. This was nice...as we could take as much alcohol as you wish. The dessert was out of this world we shared one as we were getting full from our main meal. The views on the sea were nice as we had the window table seeing out onto the sea. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

This wonderful restaurant is the best eating place in Arran, bar none. There is an extensive range of wonderfully prepared, cooked and served food, using lkcal ingredients, all freshly delivered. The owner and staff are lovely folk, friendly and attentive to all. The prices are...remarkably good, especially in this day and age, more so on an island. No profiteering either on alcohol as it's BYOB. We plan to holiday again on Arran soon and will definitely book in again at this top eatery. By the way, they serve adult-sized portions on the kids' menu at kids' menu prices - try the sticky toffee pudding - if you have room after the main course!!! Wonderful place to visit. From the Millan and Tait families. Thank you so much.More

A really enjoyable meal. A little more expensive than some other places but well matched by the quality of food and location. A relaxing place to eat and a friendly environment.

Hi Barbara I'm not sure if this is a statement or a question but we don't do 'breakfast' and our lunch menu is on par with prices on the island and a copy can be found on our Facebook page. Many thanks.
