We decided to return on... More

Visited for dinner last month and was fantastic! Followed up by lunch the next day. Exceptional selection of gin with very knowledgeable and friendly staff and good food. Will visit again!

Ate here on a Friday night during a recent trip to Arran as it had been recommended. The restaurant area is a bit odd. Sparse tables around a large room with the kitchen out the back, but in hindsight, it made for a more personal dining experience as tables aren't put crammed closely together. Service was friendly and although staff... More

The decor and grandeur of the building was modern and warm. The staff were extremely helpful and professional. The only thing that brings it down for me is the cost. It just felt like a super expensive and well decorated weather spoons. I would only go once a trip.

It was cosy with lovely cushions and really homely touches. We ordered the turkey,bacon and cheese sandwich. It was really good,... More

My father and I had dinner in the Bistro while staying a few nights at The Douglas Hotel. We also had breakfast there two mornings. Overall the food was good, but not spectacular, the atmosphere was warm and inviting, and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. I'm quite keen on having a "full Scottish breakfast", and theirs is quite... More
