We stopped off here for our dinner during our stay on Arran. It was a Tuesday night so was very quiet inside. In fact, initially, it was only us and one other guy at the bar. We were greeted and left to choose where would like to sit. This being our first outing with our (daft) dog we sat right... More

Did not eat here so cannot comment on food. Would say this is the local pub and not as touristy as some. The prices are more reasonable than the other establishments and there are two/three cozy sections to sit if you do want to stand at the bar. The opening times are limited so you need to check times.

Although we did not stay in the hotel we did have a couple of evening meals and a few drinks. The staff were very friendly and our chocolate Labrador was made very welcome.

Disappointing food - two of the most disgusting meals I have had. Nacho starter with haggis followed by greasy grainy macaroni.

This was a great find in Brodick. A pub with good food (I had the steak and kidney pie) and an excellent house ale as well (really hit the spot after a day hiking). It also seems to be a real pub with regulars rather than just a place built around tourists, they were holding their annual gladiola judging contest... More

The food was excellent - veggie nachos were gone within minutes. The staff and regulars were welcoming and friendly. The band was charming. I cannot recommend more highly.

Highlights include the staff, especially Trevor, who is a star. Food is good,non-pretentious and filling. Chips are out of this world. If I ever move to Arran this would be my local. Love it.

By contrast to Bute, Arran seems to be a bit more expensive in general, but the Ormidale is a splendid exception! Good food in pleasant surroundings and decent ale to wash it down.
