Brodick (Scottish Gaelic: Tràigh a' Chaisteil ("Castle Beach") or Breadhaig) is the main town on the Isle of Arran, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. It is halfway along the east coast of the island, in Brodick Bay below Goat Fell, the tallest mountain on Arran. The name is derived from Norse roots meaning "Broad Bay".

The Pierhead Tavern is situated in a beautiful location overlooking Lamlash Bay and Holy Island. A rooftop Terrace provides the ideal viewpoint along with 80 covers inside to dine on our chef's delicious home cooked food. Live music every Saturday night & Sunday afternoon. Three real ale pumps along with numerous whiskys!
Have been staying in Lamlash with mum, her partner and my dog for a week. Called in a couple of nights ago for a drink after a walk, what a find! Great bar and lovely staff. Good selection of drinks all served with a smile....MoreI am so grateful to you for such a lovely review. We are very proud of all our staff both front of house and kitchen and it's reviews like this that make the hard work worth while. Many thanks.

Visited with friends this weekend, we usually got to cruize but we decided to change it up a little this time and I’m so glad we did! We each had 3 tapas and between us all it was more than enough. Cheese scones were melt in the mouth,salmon platter was to die for,haggis Mac and black was my favourite! Also had prawns,sticky chicken with the best kale I’ve ever tasted, would go back just for that alone! Beets and cheese was very rich but gorgeous,and the venison slider looked tiny but was very filling. Afterwards it’s lovely to sit through the bar with the open fire and an Arran gold liquor. :) I visit Arran now at least once a year although this weekend was my 4th in a year and I can’t wait to return.

For a truly different dining experience in a relaxed and bustling atmosphere try Brambles Seafood + Grill. Have a drink at the bar, enjoy a frothy coffee by the fire or a glass of wine on the Terrace. We only use free range chicken, 21 day hung beef and fresh seafood. All produce is sourced as locally as possible and all meats are freshly prepared. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as drinks and cakes throughout the day. Children's menu available.
Friendly,efficient staff explain all the dishes and where they are sourced. Great use of the fabulous produce to be found on the island.
The bar has many unusual Scottish gins...we were lucky enough to taste the very1st batch of Arran Gin while we were there!
The restaurant his tastefully decorated with a cosy feel enhanced by the wood burner which is a focal point for those just having a drink or perusing the menu before going to their table.

We had breakfast in the Cruize Bar Brasserie and it was great, typical continental and cooked breakfast hot breakfast to order. To my surprise, on asking for soya milk (as I'm dairy intolerant) the waitress was happy to get some for me. I am also Veggie, so vegetarian sausages and eggs cooked separately wasn't a problem.
This evening Nick & I went for dinner and we started with haggis Nachos & spicy crab cakes followed by venison sausages with mash and fish & chips respectively.
All in all, the staff were very efficient and the food was very tasty. The restaurant, as its surrounded in glass made the restaurant quite chilly, but it is - 3 outside!

Ate here with 5 friends yesterday, for lunch and post-lunch drinks. The service was welcoming and effective. The staff knew their menu. Though we arrived late in the day for lunch, they were cheery. The Cullen Skink was pleasantly different, brothy and scrummy. The club sarnies and chips my friends had looked good too. After lunch, we repaired to the bar for a couple of bottles of wine. Again, the service was good - friendly and unobtrusive. We also met local drinkers.
We were concerned having read some unfavourable reviews on TripAdvisor about this place. We do not recognise their descriptions.

We start with a well-chosen menu featuring local, seasonal ingredients. Our chefs take pride in each dish and alter the menu with the passing seasons to take full advantage of the best of the local produce. Just click on the links above to see our current menus. And atmosphere is important, too. We've chosen soothing colours, exposed the sandstone walls and polished the wooden floorboards to make a great place to relax and enjoy the food, the wine and the company.
Had a gorgeous Christmas lunch here with friends .... it was delicious. Great choice of food on the menu ... I had homemade chicken liver to start with a Turkey paupiette with seasonal veg with Sticky Toffee pudding for dessert. The staff couldn’t do enough for us ... we had the best time. A must visit for anyone visiting Arran!

Could not go the first of our two night break but it was worth the wait. Only downside was that we could not get a booking until 8.30 but we coped! Good service and good food. Highly recommended.

Visited here for lunch with my mum. Nice varied menu ranging from smaller plates and sandwiches to full main meals. Also some lovely Deserts and home baking. Atmosphere was really nice with a lovely coal fire roaring away. The lady that served us could not have been more friendly and this just added to the experience. We shared the garlic mushrooms.....which were so tasty and a rather nice piece of homemade chocolate cake. Definitely worth a lunch stop.

Nice setting on the seafront. I managed to get a seat at the bar and had the burger with added Arran cheese and bacon. The tables were all fully booked so I wouldn't recommend counting on being able to eat without a booking. Unfortunately, Arran doesn't seem to have any mobile phone masts (except Brodick) so it;s difficult to call in a reservation. While I was there, several people were turned away, and all said the same thing - "I tried to book, but couldn't get a signal!"

With its rustic-chic style, The Douglas Bistro has a refreshing simplicity but a serious intent.The cuisine is honest and straightforward in style, bold and hearty in flavour. No fussy preparation or pretentious artistry, just thoughtful and skillful use of good quality produce. The menus are seasonally driven and make use of home-grown or locally-sourced ingredients, with a contemporary twist on flavoursome classics.
Just across the road from the ferry port. We stopped in on a busy Sunday afternoon, had two pots of tea and nibbles between us. Staff were friendly, nice atmosphere and the toilets were clean ? the place is dog friendly too ?
