We were looking for somewhere local to celebrate our Birthday that we had not yet visited. And we were not disappointed. Both my (Twin) sister and I and her husband thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We each chose different mains and puddings and all were excellent. And all at a very reasonable price. We will certainly be visiting again. Would highly... More

My friend booked us a table here on a Friday night as its one of her favourite places to go. It was my first visit and certainly wont be the last. Great atmosphere, attentive waiting staff, clean and good, varied menu. I had the lobster and trio of desserts. Very tasty! Look forward to my next visit.

The bathrooms are not the greatest.. The water would make noises when using it, very annoying. The wifi in the rooms did not work or very... More

We were looking for a restaurant in Ayr to take relatives for lunch. Not being familiar with the area, we had a look on trip advisor and chose this restaurant. What a good choice! We were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown to our table straight away. There was an extensive menu to choose from with something to suit all... More

We both had the starter of patty which was lovely, i had chicken tempura which wasn't good at all usually its strips of chicken they gave me balls... More

Went here on Wednesday night, party of 6 adults and 1 toddler. The staff couldn't have been any more helpful as one of the party had a food intolerance and checked everything for us and came back with suggestions when parts of the dish were not suitable. Menu choices were fab, food when it came was fabulous! Everyone of us... More

Was here on Saturday with family although very busy the service was excellent and the food even more so I could have eaten everything on the menu. We sat in the little garden room which was very cosy .I highly recommend trying this place .

I have eaten here several times and have always had a great experience. The menu has something for everyone & with generous portions the food is always to a high quality standard. The staff are always very friendly & professional no matter how busy they are (be sure to avoid disappointment and book at the weekends) Certainly worth a visit... More

This was our 2nd visit. We have attended the Scottish Airshow the last 2 years and this place was recommended to us by our B&B. We booked I'm advance for this year as last year it was definitely a highlight. We even got the same table this year where my wife had the lambs liver (I think) and said it... More

I'm not long back from a weekend at the Chestnuts Hotel, the food was brilliant and the staff are very welcoming. Would recommend to everyone. I stayed here with 3 friends in a single room, room was perfect for sleeping in. If I had one issue it would be the room was too warm but after my friend said to... More
