This was a great find in Brodick. A pub with good food (I had the steak and kidney pie) and an excellent house ale as well (really hit the spot after a day hiking). It also seems to be a real pub with regulars rather than just a place built around tourists, they were holding their annual gladiola judging contest... More

The food was excellent - veggie nachos were gone within minutes. The staff and regulars were welcoming and friendly. The band was charming. I cannot recommend more highly.

Highlights include the staff, especially Trevor, who is a star. Food is good,non-pretentious and filling. Chips are out of this world. If I ever move to Arran this would be my local. Love it.

By contrast to Bute, Arran seems to be a bit more expensive in general, but the Ormidale is a splendid exception! Good food in pleasant surroundings and decent ale to wash it down.

Great location and views. Lovely place with friendly and pleasant staff. In fact the barman couldn't have done more for a large party who arrived by mini bus. He rearranged tables and did everything in his power to ensure that people were comfortable and well served with food and drinks. Unfortunately the standard of food was poor. A chicken and... More

Great, quirky pub with very friendly, helpful bar and waiting staff. Food needs improving, particularly the Vegetable tagliatelle... Could not fault the location or the staff though!

The food was good value, the haggis nachos were interesting, the macaroni and the pie good. The Arran shaped tables were cute and the Arran shaped mirror in the bathroom! Good value pub grub.

We've been going to The Ormidale, or 'Dale' as it's fondly referred to by the locals, for years and love it. They do some form of entertainment most nights...pop quizzes, bingo, general knowledge quizzes and the like. Be warned it gets very busy with locals when the pub quizzes are on, so get in early (probably around 8:45) if you... More

I had very good lasagne and the local Arran blonde beer. The scampi was also good. The food here is yummy and the portions are big.
