Go every year for our Anniversary. Have been going for the last eight years. Always had good service and staff are very friendly. Food is always excellent and that is why we always travel from Kilmarnock. We have never been let down yet.

Very nice, very good service, kept asking if everything was ok? Husband had mixed grill which he enjoyed. I had salmon fillet which was lovely , only thing that let it down was the chips weren't homemade!

We sat outside and the staff were friendly and helpful and especially patient with our grandson. Food is average but a wide choice and good for family eating, not fine dining.
