With its rustic-chic style, The Douglas Bistro has a refreshing simplicity but a serious intent.The cuisine is honest and straightforward in style, bold and hearty in flavour. No fussy preparation or pretentious artistry, just thoughtful and skillful use of good quality produce. The menus are seasonally driven and make use of home-grown or locally-sourced ingredients, with a contemporary twist on flavoursome classics.

Outstanding food, sensible portions, imaginative menu. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Enjoyed the ambience, staff professional without being stuck up. If we were staying on Arran longer would definitely go back.
Had a nice dinner and lunch in the Douglas last week. My wife had the Caesar salad and I had a chicken curry for the dinner, and we both had club sandwiches a couple of days later. I would recommend. All the food was very...More
