Staff are really nice and friendly. We both had starters which were great then we had the teriyaki salmon... More

We have dined here several times & always leave satisfied. The quality of the food is second to none and the service excellent. All freshly cooked to order and lots of delicious fresh ingredients unlike so many places. We would highly recommend the Minishant but would advise booking if you don't want to be disappointed! P.s Can highly recommend the... More

We came here in TripAdvisor scores. The restaurant itself resembles a small front room of a cottage, tables are very close together. We had called in advance to request a booth as we have a small baby. We were shown to our seats and given menus. The menus were laminated and were very sticky, I really didn't like to hold... More

My wife and I were looking for a new venue to go to for lunch and found this on TripAdviser. It really is well worth the visit. Great food at reasonable prices. Friendly and efficient staff. We booked in advance and as there is only a limited number of tables, you would be best advised to pre book your table... More

It was my birthday recently and we were looking for somewhere local but we wanted to try somewhere new. My wife and I were taking my mum out and she lives in Alloway which is very close to Minishant. My wife suggested the Minishant Inn as it was getting some really good reviews so we booked for a Saturday lunch.... More

A great wee place where the food is the star. We went on Sunday lunchtime and we're given a table for two. With a good menu with plenty of choices and attentive staff, this place is definitely a winner. We had goats cheese and the soup for starters and the seafood grill and triple pork plate for mains. It was... More
