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.

Great location and views. Lovely place with friendly and pleasant staff. In fact the barman couldn't have done more for a large party who arrived by mini bus. He rearranged tables and did everything in his power to ensure that people were comfortable and well served with food and drinks. Unfortunately the standard of food was poor. A chicken and... More
