went for a family meal faultless from start to finish. Lovely welcome from the manager, waiting staff were very attentive and knowledgeable and the tables far enough apart that you had privacy. Food was amazing plenty of choices and very reasonable. Cannot wait to return

One of the best places to eat in Ayr. Great food, good service plus the best range of non alcoholic wines and beers I have found in a restuarant, since new drink driving laws applied in Scotland. Well done for being so far thinking for the "driver".

Great food, good prices, attentive staff, nice atmosphere one of my favourite eateries. Say no more. Well worth a visit. Prices are good value and good selection of beers. Turned up and had not booked but made sure space was available. Will be back.

Pros to Golf made our booking. Eight of us stayed at the Chestnuts Hotel for 10 days of golfing. We were within 30 minutes of most golf courses in the area, including Western Gailes, Prestwick, Royal Troon, Irvine and Turnberry (renamed Trump Turnberry!). The hotel looked after U.S. very well. Breakfasts are provided and include full Scottish breakfast or just... More

We have visited this hotel on many occasions and returned for a family lunch last Sunday. As always the staff are friendly and welcoming and there is an extensive menu to suit everyone. For any vegetarians who like goats cheese the Veggie Burger is fantastic and I am always tempted by it. We will definitely return.
