We struggled to choose from the menu because there were so many good options. The trio of meats was huge and every plate was clean. Good atmosphere and staff were really helpful. Well worth the taxi trip down, will definitely be back!

Another excellent meal at the Minishant Inn - on Christmas Eve it was very busy and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. Great atmosphere and we weren't rushed. Recommendations were helpful and the food was excellent for all courses that the 3 of us had. Only downside was too many dishes to choose from!

First visit and will certainly be back. Went for family dinner which consisted of a couple of babies and about 8 adults and older kids. Although quite small inside this contributed to the quaint atmosphere and it was nice to see the coal fire burning as in a lot of places they are for show only and lay empty. Food... More

Visited this place this afternoon with my girlfriend and my family. Excellent food and healthy portions, (we have been before so we knew not to have much for breakfast) so we can at last sample the sweet as we have always been too full to get that far. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Definitely be returning.

Had Christmas dinner here and it was outstanding from start to finish. The atmosphere was lovely, staff very friendly and the food was delicious. I had never been before and took a gamble booking it on Christmas Day after hearing good reviews, the gamble paid off. Ayrshires little gem....will definately be back.

I have been here a few times and the food and service have been fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. I asked for a main course portion of a smoked duck salad and it was no problem. We will definitely return.
