I went there twice and both times were equally as satisfying. The menu is great as it diverges from the ordinary. The setting is very convenient- both indoors and outdoors have been setup to welcome customers at any time of the year. Highly recommended for...familiesMore

Went in for lunch and the place was mobbed but the staff coping very well, probably used to it. Very COVID compliant We we’re shown to a table in the back garden which was lovely. the garden area ground was loose stone which was fine...until we went to sit at our table . Most were large wooden tables which benches attached however ours had individual seats which were very difficult to move across the stones and left you sitting at an angle. However that small complaint was more than covered by the lovely food I had a steak sandwich which was massive with red onion and cheese and tasted wonderful My wife had the fish sarnie which again was wonderful Would visit againMore

Fitted us in on a busy Saturday lunchtime and we enjoyed a lovely atmosphere with surprisingly quick service and excellent soup, perfect fish finger sandwich and fresh mackerel salad. Could not fault our visit and reasonable prices too.

Had a quick sandwich lunch. One portion was more than enough for 2 people to share as a light bite. Very fresh bread and very tasty too.

Great food, excellent service, reasonably priced. What's not to like. My medium steak cooked perfectly. My wife's chicken stuffed with haggis also excellent and a huge portion. Smoked haddock fishcake starters clearly home made and delicious.

Dropped off at Brambles for a quick lunch. We were lucky and got a park virtually outside the cafe. However there seemed to be plenty of parking available in the town. All Covid restrictions are being observed. Good selection on menu. We opted to sit...outside at back of premises where they have a number of shaded tables and bench type seats. Very pleasant on the hot sunny day we were there. I had a cheese and pickle sandwich and my wife had a ploughman’s lunch. Nothing too fancy but just what we needed after a few days of hotel and restaurant food. Portions were generous and ingredients were fresh. Service was quick a d friendly ( you order and pay inside and they deliver to your table ). I would recommend this place if you need a quick bite in Inveraray.More

No I dont think so as I’ve been to Brambles many times and never seen a dog in there, you could however give them a phone to double check.

Yes, it's dog friendly. We took our fox red lab in and they were happy to give her a bowl of water.
