Family meal out, food was nice good portion and reasonable prices. Only downside was the staff. Very abrupt and not very friendly at all, no courtesy check and when dessert came out we were being 'flung' the plates to hand out! Wanting to pay by card but this took far too long- card machine doesn't work when phone is in... More

People serving looked miserable and not very welcoming.Ordered curry and rice and when it came it looked grey in colour,watered down and tasteless.Complained and returned this dish and ordered chicken noodle soup instead.A waste of time as this was also tasteless.Very disappointed.Was not charged for the curry thankfully!

I'm glad I didn't read the reviews of this place before we went! Seldom seen such polarised opinions about a restaurant! Evidently we were lucky, we were really hungry and it was the restaurant nearest our parking space. Starters were lovely, main courses were perfectly acceptable, and we found the two ladies who were serving perfectly friendly.

Very unfriendly staff, I think they would rather you went in ordered food n drink then left within 20 minutes of arrival, I like to have a few drinks and spend sometime enjoying my food, this was not the case, won't be back

Fantastic service, lovely food. Waitresses couldn't have been more helpful or quick. My husband finished his drink and was offered another in seconds. All courses came quickly. Good size portions. Would recommend the prawns on toast and the aromatic crispy duck. We had a great experience here. Thank you!

Food was good. Staff were very rude and one of our party's food was flung down on the table and spilled no apologies and they they had no manners when they served or lifted the plates also lifted plates when there was people still eating. We won't be back.

Visited this establishment last night after phoning to book it for 18.30. Remembered in hindsight that AYR Races had been run in the afternoon. The welcome from the management when we walked in was non existent. The maitre d eventually glanced up at ourselves and another couple then completely ignored us all again. We were escorted to a table (... More
