Food made to order with a good selection and variety. Some exiting dishes from the island of Arran like hare and pheasant. Bring your own alcohol and wine for your meal. Very friendly staff and large portions. Limited space so book your table in advance....More

Excellent restaurant for a such a small town. All of the entrees seem to come with abundant potatoes, chips, and veggies. Many cakes on offer too. Bring your own alcohol - they will happily pour it or refrigerate it.

Don't know whether or not it is ope at lunchtime in August as we went in September early evening. We were advised to book as the B&B owner said that locals couldn't manage to eat there as it is always so busy!
