The Douglas Bar always offers a warm welcome and, we think, one of the best views on the Island Our whisky, spirits and drinks list is continually evolving and now boasts many fine malts and speciality gins from many parts of Ayrshire and Scotland (though we do have to confess that we do have a wee preference for the Arran Malts)

For those wanting something a little more refreshing, the Douglas Bar is well known for serving up delicious, freshly made cocktails - see our menu below!

Our wine list is always current and carefully considered, offering a selection of tastes for every occasion.

We serve food all day, from noon. Home baking, sharing platters and an extensive menu using many of Arran’s local and artisan suppliers. Snacks, sharing platters and meals are served all day, with the addition of our Bistro dishes which are available in both dining areas after 6pm - there really is something to suit all tastes - just click through to the Bistro page to check our full menu!
