As a local, we had tried to visit this restaurant a few times but always found it fully booked. Now I know why! It is a small restaurant but that in many respects is an advantage. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty. Both my wife and son had fish dishes and we're delighted with them I had a... More

Me and my family visited this restaurant today on our way home from Ayr. We arrived around 4:15pm and we were able to have off the lunch menu which is 3 courses for £15:95. Food was really tasty and great table service. Will definitely be popping into this restaurant again :)

Stopped off on chance when passing to see if we could get a table for a meal and they accordingly obliged. Staff were very professional both with their service and mannerism during our visit. Food was excellent and very well presented. It was also very good value for money and we will def rush back for another sitting sometime soon.

Decided to have a meal here on our 45th wedding anniversary. We had spent a holiday in the house adjoining 36 years ago with my parents and young children. It was just a basic pub then. We were not disappointed and have to agree with other contributers that the food is plentysome and great. We would certainly eat there again... More

3 of us booked for our Saturday lunch and arrived at 5:30pm seated immediately. Staff very courteous and were presented with menus and drunk order taken all in a ten minute period. Brilliant. I had macaroni cheese and the other two had breaded chicken and steak pie. The steak pie was tremendous and it is well worth a visit just... More

Table booked for 7 o clock Sat night, arrived and were seated promptly. Drinks order and meal order taken, we were told at that time dinner would be a half hour. One hour later it arrived.Apart from the wait all was of a high standard.some more communication required by the staff to the hungry dinners.

We was given the lunch set menu as a mistake therefor didn't realise we could have had a trio of meats (which was on the dinner set menu) so we shall have to return for... More
