I've been coming to the Drift Inn for many years and have watched the changes since the current proprietor has taken over with delight. Often times it is natural that there will be variation in the ability to deliver such outstanding standards as is commonly aspired to by the team. The location goes without saying, but it's the little things... More

Great place to have a drink and dinner after walking all over beautiful Arran Island. We probably were there three times in two days.

Went here for lunch with my Dad. It was absolutely lovely. I found the place to be immaculate which is an accolade to the staff as there is a kids sandpit outside which some wee ones were enjoying while we were there. It was lovely to watch them playing in the sun ( while it was shinning ) ! The... More

Whilst staying a couple of nights in Lamlash we decided to pay a visit to the Drift Inn which had been recommended to us. On both evenings we had lovely meals where the food was beautifully cooked and presented. Some of the dishes had subtle twists that worked really well and tasted incredible. 10 out of 10 for the food!... More

Excellent meal of local venison and lovely range of desserts. Langoustines looked really good too. Service was friendly and efficient, especially seeing how popular this restaurant is. Lovely views across Lamlash Bay. Not always possible to book a table and the staff recommend getting there early- we would say by 6.30!
