We had a great meal here. The food is delicious, the menu is extensive and the service is great. I would definitely recommend that you book in advance to avoid disappointment. We will definitely be back.

I have been here more times than I can remember, always the place of choice when I'm back down in Ayr with the family. Can say that I have tried all of the dishes excluding any items that I personally don't like, but I always come right back to the Goats Cheese started and Trio of Meats main. Delicious! Everything...

My family and I are regular customers at the Minishant and we are never disappointed. My favourite meal is the Cajun chicken or the Cajun spiced salmon. Always so beautifully cooked. Only thing I would say is that I think the dessert menu needs some new editions, I love the Eton mess but I miss the Winter berry pavlova!!!

We popped in on a Saturday afternoon .we went on an impulse on the bus and didn't have a booking but managed to get a table even though it was busy. This is a lovely place to have lunch or dinner. Staff are really nice and friendly. We both had starters which were great then we had the teriyaki salmon... More
