“Good solid fare on the seafront”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Superb location on the sea front with a large shop attached. great for a quick lunch or just a refreshment.

Didn't like the lack of supervision of the Gents' toilet which seemed to have been blocked for a while.

“We were thoroughly satisfied with our visit.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

Two young children, their dad and granny. That was our group on a wet day in November. I had great reservations about finding somewhere to suit us all, especially since one was a vegetarian and another a vegan!! The children enjoyed spending their pocket money in the shop, which had plenty of affordable things that appealed to them. Then we went upstairs for lunch. The vegan was thrilled with his vegeburger, salad and chips, and the rest of us were also happy with our choices of pumpkin soup, beans on toast and a ham roll . The staff were lovely and we didn't feel rushed at all. Nice surroundings with artwork on the walks and a large picture window . Prices reasonable and all the food was fresh and tasty.

“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We always pay a visit to both Bilsland and their cafe when on Arran. It may not be as fancy as other cafe's but they do a good coffee and there will be something sweet to eat to suit all tastes. Not expensive and clean with very friendly staff.
