If your looking for a private room for a party of up to 18 then the Garden Room at the Chestnuts is the place to be. A beautiful bright room with conservatory attached provides a light airy atmosphere for any group. The food and service is superb with with all needs catered for.

I go for dinner to Chestnuts every time I go back to Ayr and it is consistently excellent. Great menu, high quality, fresh, homemade food (I am a vegetarian and never struggle to find something to eat! ) extremely pleasant staff and great service. Highly recommended!

Had a really nice dinner here. Booked last minute & they were happy to squeeze us in. Nice hotel, nice staff, moved through to the bar after dinner next to the great coal fire on a cold winter night. Will definately be back. Thanks
