Description: The first thing that you'll notice when you walk in will be the homely and inviting atmosphere, the second will be the very subtle aroma of beautiful local produce. Modern and traditional cuisine made using the best of local produce, served in a charming Scottish restaurant with a warming atmosphere. Informality is the order of the day at Brambles - we create a relaxed dining atmosphere to make all our patrons feel comfortable and at ease - combined with our friendly and efficient serving staff we know you will enjoy the dining experience as much as you will the food.

“Inverarays Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Had Visited Brambles on our Summer Hoildays for the the first time just for Cakes & Coffee, when passing through Inveraray & had a lovely experience even though it was extremely busy. We popped in again for a quick Lunch while on our Coach holiday, this visit was even better. Has been refurbished beautifully, it was warm, cosy clean & fresh. Food was delicous & quickly served. The staff again where cheerful friendly & efficent.
Would highly recommend it. I would never go anywhere else when passing through Inveraray again. Only negative was outside was bitter cold & raining, but thats not Brambles fault.

“Worth every minute of a 1.5 hour round trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

I love brambles. I regularly take my parents or my inlaws the 1.5 hour round trip from dunoon just to go for lunch. The place is warm and friendly and the food and cakes are excellent. They say they have the best coffee in Inveraray, I agree. This is an extremely busy place in the summer so sometimes have to wait for a table but its worth it.

I have also heard great things about the rooms they let out but have not experienced them personally.
