Very limited menu, not much too choose from, however portions were HUGE. Food was nice. Inside is quite dark. Beer garden and outside looked lovely. £10 in a taxi from Rothesay town centre.

Good dining options are limited on the island. This is one of the best and can be combined with exploring the south of the island. This is good quality pub /brasserie type food with emphasis on quantity. Many diners were having steak, so maybe this is a good option. The food was good, but not that exciting. Lunch was a... More

Food is lovely! A little overpriced but we have always had great service. Maria and the team always welcome us and every time we go in it is busy. Kid friendly and a great host of beers.

It was a wet Monday in July, Scotland at it's best! Three of us with our two dogs came for lunch. They prefer that you stay in the non carpeted area with your dog which we all agree makes sense especially since one dog is a large wet black Labrador! Unfortunately a family with young children were in that area... More

He not only booked the table but asked them to recommend a cake maker which they did. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and we were very... More

My title says it all. Food is wonderful and very reasonably priced for the quality you get. Enjoyed it so much we went back the following day.
