“Yummy food, cosy place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I wanted somewhere affordable to take a client out to lunch but also had to be a little bit special, the Velvet Apple didn't disappoint. The menu and specials are an interesting mix, the decor is nice with local photos displayed and the staff couldn't be any more helpful. We were really impressed and look forward to returning.

Visited the velvet apple for lunch today. First time eating here and will definitely be back. Food was great,atmosphere was great (George Michael playing in the background always helps),Gill the owner couldn't have done more to ensure we enjoyed our meal. Amazing value. Can 100% recommend The Velvet Apple to anyone.

“A great find - give it a try.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Whilst visiting Troon with friends I checked Tripadvisor to find a good place for lunch and the Velvet Apple was No1 so we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed and staff were very helpful in explaining menu which promotes Healthy Eating and was varied providing snacks and full meals. Food was delicious, served promptly and efficiently. This establishments hosts themed nights on a Friday and Saturday but it is rather far for us to travel to try them or we would. We will return on our next visit to Troon.

“Tasty and Filling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Both my friend and I had the soup and sandwich combo. Beautifully presented and very tasty. The server was happy to answer questions on the produce being sourced locally, always a plus. Had we not been so full we would have had a cake, wish I had now!
