The food here is so impossibly delicious that you will want to lick your plate clean. The reason it is called ‘Arran on a Plate’ is due to the fact that the Master Chefs of Great Britain award their Chefs with plates highlighting their achievement. The restaurant is centred around Chef Richard Attkins. Richard began his training in Scotland and progressed into Michelin-starred establishments in France and the UK. Throughout his career he has specialised in sourcing Scottish season produce to create awesome meals. The menu changes and is varied, but its all fantastic. They even serve locally produced beers from the Arran Brewing Company. I also enjoyed THE best ever cheeses board in my life. They use lots of Arran ingredients and this really makes Arran on a Plate special.

The restaurant itself has great views over Brodick Bay and has a trendy interior. They have a licensed bar open until midnight with a good selection of whiskey.

The great thing about Arran on a Plate? You could come over on a ferry from the mainland for a scrumptious lunch or early dinner. In fact lunch here would really make a day out on Arran something special.

OPENING TIMES (7 DAYS A WEEK):

Favorite Dish:
I had the Scallops and Salmon starter with soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi paste to start with. And a whiskey of course. My main meal was Trout Almandine which was absolutely delicious. This went well with a Dark Isle of Arran Ale. Finally – the best Cheese Board I have ever eaten. This comprised several Arran and Scottish cheeses, oat cakes and an Isle of Arran Tomato Chutney. Complemented by an excellent glass of house red wine. Fabulous!
