Arrived to a 30 min wait which was 60 mins. Roast pork shoulder which was so smothered in mayo - it was a wet mess lacking in taste. Not impressed and poor service

Fantastic sandwiches. We had the chorizo, pork and mackerel sandwiches, all of which were a hit! The Itn Bru to wash them down went well with the kids.

Stopped by here twice - once got two brilliant sandwiches - served warm but sadly we didn't need them immediately! Then got coffee here before the ferry. The staff are super friendly and full of valuable advice, especially about the ferry!

Great selection of sandwiches. Decent coffee too! The staff are always busy but so pleasant and helpful. A superb experience of a small sandwich shop.

I’d seen the sandwich shop before visiting and asbestos vegan I was worried my only option would be a dead cheese sandwich! However, when I saw the menu I was overwhelmed by three different vegan options, all interesting and distinctly different. I had a roasted...celeriac, baba ganoush and crispy shallot baguette and it was one of the best sandwiches I’ve had in my life! I wish I could have tried the other flavours too. Totally worth the £6! I also had an oat milk dark hot chocolate which was delicious! I would have definitely gone back if I stayed longer.More

Sandwich shop opposite the ferry that serves very well filled sandwiches on delicious bread. Try the mackerel and rocket for example, a meal in itself. Excellent brownies too. Yummy.

Ideally located at the ferry terminal, and really classy selection, as well as basics. Delicious and timely bacon butty! And very friendly service

Sandwiches made to order with a wide choice of fillings and breads. Small garden to watch the sea, or takeaway Recommend the wild boar and mushroom on sourdough.

Wherever you stay on the Isle of Arran please make sure you go here at least once on your visit. I promise you will never had a sandwich as good as this. There are unusual mixes for meat eaters, vegetarians and a vegan option and...the brownies were amazing. I wish I had written down what was in everyones so I could replicate at home but I just remember my vegan option included roasted celeriac ….. Of all the places we ate on holiday this year, this is the overall winner from the family.More

Looking for a sandwich in the rain today and we never expected this level of class, warm fresh bread and delicious fillings. A full range from which we chose two different innovative vegan options. Excellent!

There are no gluten free options regarding the sandwiches as the bread is made by an artisan baker in Blackwaterfoot. They did have some gluten free snack bars and small cakes though.

The shop is very small but there are seats outside where you can sit with the dog or even adjacent there's a small area where you can park the car and watch the ferry to/from Kintyre. Definitely worth a visit!
