On arrival we were a little dissapointed as we had expected to be in the restaurant but were shown to a table in the bar. The menu did not seem too appealing but when the food came it really was very good.

Just ate in the Douglas - had lunch before setting sail back to Glasgow - the fish platter was absolutely delicious - very fresh and well presented with lovely mussels - hot smoked salmon, crayfish tails - and a fab mackerel pate, will definitely come here again.

After being unable to find the golden dragon ( I think that it's now Arran Tandoori and still empty) we tried the bar food at the Douglas hotel. We felt under dressed for the bistro! Burgers were great, especially the beef and goats cheese! Chips came in a little mini fryer basket with mock newspaper which my mum found cute.... More
