Beautiful cafe with home baking and light meals in a charming setting with walled garden. Menus proudly show the provenance of the ingredients: their highland beef and lamb, locally sourced black pudding, seafood, ice creams plus all their tempting homemade cakes. Fantastic range of local produce also available from their refurbished farm shop. There is also an excellent cheese counter complete with olive bar. Check out their farm shop entry. With café, farm shop, woodland walk and walled garden this exceptional family run farm is a joy to visit. Here are all the family to greet you..
The perfect place to experience local produce skilfully cooked in lovely surroundings, overlooking Holy Isle in the pretty village of Lamlash only a few miles south of the Brodick ferry terminal. Fantastic views and a great welcome await you. I savoured every melting mouthful of the scallops with black pudding, perfectly cooked and topped with crispy bacon and served with local leaves, grown in polytunnels a stone’s throw from the Inn. The baked Arran Camembert with artisan bread, leaves and compote pictured was also excellent. A class act with a lovely atmosphere and a great addition to Scottish Food Guide. You can pop in for a latte and light bite or local beers and choose from the blackboard bursting with ideas to tempt you!
This cafe is on the first floor above a stunning atrium with waterfall that marks the entrance to the whisky visitor centre. With whisky barrels conveniently placed to hold cruets and menus, the tables are arranged around the gallery and the new tweed and leather retro seating is both comfortable and stylish. The menu has light bites and heartier meals. We opted for the absolutely delicious sharing platter of Arran cheeses, local chutneys and refreshing salads along with island smoked salmon (pictured). There are soups and starters, home bakes and desserts too. The staff are great - friendly, helpful and knowledgable on local produce and ingredients. Be sure to take the excellent distillery tour and visit the downstairs shop before you leave. This is Arran's one and only whisky distillery and is independently owned.
Over on the west side of Arran is the charmingly restored croft where you will find gifts and knitwear, a wonderful nature inspired ceramics workshop and showroom, plus this unusual and highly enjoyable eatery! There is home baking, light lattes, great daily soups and also you can sample home made bread and pides (Turkish style pizzas/calzone). Hamza (chef) has hand built a wood burning oven the same as those in Turkey for a wonderfully alternative feast! They also grow our own salad leaves and herbs.
This wonderful bistro is owned by musicians and this is reflected in the super live music almost every night, to accompany the excellent food. It has a great atmosphere - informal with friendly staff and a skilful team in the kitchen too. The menu has many favourites including home made burgers served creatively with accompaniment options including local cheeses; beer battered fish and chips; vegetarian options and chicken dishes. They use as much local produce as they can and stock all the local beer too. Better book as it is rightly very popular and fills up fast!
A real jewel. Charming in every way - setting, style, hospitality and exceptional food. I particularly liked the note on the menu offering eggs 'should the ladies oblige' referring to the ducks in the gardens! Acknowledged as the oldest house on Arran it is steeped in history and is beautifully restored with stunning gardens. A stay here is a joy - Kilmichael is like a cosy blanket that envelopes you, where you can relax and enjoy its peace and tranquility.
The Cafe is located on the upper floor of the Calmac Pier with spectacular views over Tobermory Bay to Calve island and the Sound of Mull. From the terrace you can catch Mull sunsets whilst savouring fresh seafood. Most of the langoustines, lobster and squat lobster are caught on own fishing boat, The Highlander. Local boats land other fruits of the sea, whilst crabs and oysters come from nearby Croig. Steaks are from highland cows, born and bred locally at Glengorm Castle and local Mull cheeses are on the cheeseboard. Add in local beers, whiskies and organic fruit juices and it is no wonder they have won awards for this establishment.
This is so much more than a coffee shop! North of Tobermory the road is pretty incredible but keep going as it's worth it! The old steading buildings have been tastefully transformed into a lovely cafe plus a distinguished deli worth the journey for any foodie. The day we were there there were walkers and cyclists...even the local cricket match in full swing, so obviously a popular place for strollers, twitchers and sporty types too. Home baking and lots of local produce... from their own walled garden too. They produce their own Hebridean lamb, Highland beef and venison off the hill.
Delightful hosts and wonderful highland produce this is a lovely place from which to explore Mull. Jo cooks up the finest Mull produce in innovative and delicious ways whilst Dave is a very entertaining host. They have won many plaudits over their 15 years here and still serve their mouth watering evening meals - but, please note, now only to residents.
A lovely cafe on the first floor above the pottery - see cookware section. Accessed from pottery studio or by external stair this couthy place makes creative use of the eaves and also have a lovely large deck to enjoy al fresco meals weather permitting. We had glorious sunshine as you can see! Easy parking a few minutes outside Tobermory, with a great fish shop nearby too! No e mail at present.
Although the nearest town is Oban, this delightful place to eat is set amidst the stunning scenery of the Morvern peninsula where dedicated Slow food exponent Jane and her team create beautiful meals with the ultimate in local produce. Much of the meat is from the own estate, the remainder from artisan producers, locally grown fruit and vegetables, locally landed seafood and farmed shellfish, and all their fine suppliers listed on their website. Commended in Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards and well worth exploring.
