We were seated in the conservatory part of the restaurant. Bright and cheerful. Very clean. Great breads. We had sandwich and soup combos. The soup was mushrooms and tarragon and was served hot. My wife had a chicken sandwich and I had a shrimp and crayfish sandwich. Very well sized portions for lunch.

After a tiring day and staying in the hotel we had no wish to travel further in the evening, so we ate in the lounge bar. Decent menu and the food was fine. Pleasant outlook. The public bar sounded a bit raucous at times but not really an issue.

Royal Burgh Bistro is situated in the main street in the heart of Inveraray. We were warmly welcomed on arrival. The restaurant is a wee bit dark, but clean. We ordered a series of sandwiches for me and my group. The club sandwich my wife has was disappointing. The middle slice of bread in the three-layer sandwich was slathered, on both sides, with pesto sauce, which gave the sandwich an awful taste. We complained, but the waitress did not appear interested in changing it. Pesto is not an ingredient of a club sandwich and should not be included unless it is clearly stated on the menu.One of our group had a sandwich with meatballs in it, which she loved. I had a smoked salmon sandwich that was also good.

The Cottage

Reviewed By snowwhite46

Only looking for a light snack for lunch and had been in the Cottage before. Ordered a tuna toastie which was very nice, However when it arrived could have been presented much better rather than looking like it had just been thrown on the plate, it would have been better if it had been either cut in half or quartered and along with the salad which was lovely and fresh would have had a much better professional finish. However apart from that it was a very nice reasonable lunch stop.

Popped in for lunch on our way down the coast. The restaurant is very inviting and it's pet friendly! The food was incredible, we had the goulash and fish n chips. The furniture, fireplaces and exposed wood and stone make for a cozy atmosphere. Would definitely go back!

First ate here about 7 years ago so we were pleased to see Brambles going strong. Called for lunch: seafood platter, macaroni cheese, apple strudel and two glasses of white wine, plus sausage rolls to take home for tea. Even though the place was packed the service was friendly & efficient and out lunch first class!

Samphire Seafood Restaurant

Seafood restaurant using fresh locally sourced fish, meats and game.

Reviewed By MartinChillcott

Lovely welcome and service throughout the evening from Amanda and Laura (hope I've remembered that right). Scallops were perfectly cooked and the smoked haddock chowder delicious. We don't adhere to 'white with fish' and the Pinot noir (with a nice 'nudge' from our waitress as i pondered on our choice out loud) was spot on. Whole sea bream beautifully cooked.Fancied some whiskey and wondered what would go with Sticky Toffee pudding. Recommendation from waitress was 'Oban' and was a very nice 'match'The food was wonderful and our 2 waitresses were friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and very professional. Great evening. Hope to return on our next trip
