Description: The first thing that you'll notice when you walk in will be the homely and inviting atmosphere, the second will be the very subtle aroma of beautiful local produce. Modern and traditional cuisine made using the best of local produce, served in a charming Scottish restaurant with a warming atmosphere. Informality is the order of the day at Brambles - we create a relaxed dining atmosphere to make all our patrons feel comfortable and at ease - combined with our friendly and efficient serving staff we know you will enjoy the dining experience as much as you will the food.

“Amazing full Scottish breakfast”

Looking for somewhere to grab breakfast while on a biking trip round the west of Scotland. Brambles is fantastic. Nice atmosphere. Great hot food. Cracking full Scottish breakfast and coffee refills ! Highly recommended.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Great food, great staff and atmosphere.. We felt very relaxed enjoying the excellent food we did not realise they were now closed till we ordered more coffee, this was no trouble to the staff, they were more than happy for us to have another coffee while they cleaned up.

Many thanks for your feedback & please accept my apologies that we have not managed to meet your expectations with regards to providing a baguette before noon.

At Brambles we serve a varied breakfast menu between 08:30 & 11:30 and a lunch menu from 12 noon for meals and lighter lunches. For optimum freshness, our baguettes are baked at noon for our lunch menu and hence are not provided before this time. Also, all of our baguettes are made to order. This is also clearly stated on our big take away menu board as you enter the bistro.

Thank you for your comments that you had a lovely breakfast.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

When your are used to being overcharged for inferior quality in the UK, this little jem was a very pleasant surprise.
Halfway up the main street between the harbour and the jail please make sure you pop in when in Inveraray. When we went in there was only one table available, although it still had the previous occupants dishes. Before we had a chance to move the waitress was over and after a warm welcome the table was quickly cleared and menus handed out. Not a massive choice, which normally is a good sign in my experience, and we were not dissatisfied.
Slight wait for the food to arrive, maybe due to every table being occupied and also offering a carry out service, but when it came it was more than worth the wait. The spicy tomato soup was to die for, and the club sandwich was a meal in itself. For £6.95 a bowl of soup, side salad, natchos, and a BLT was the deal of the day. Even the kids meals were great value for money and top quality food.
All in all a refreshing experience and definitely a place we will be back to.
