I've eaten in here on and off for nearly 20 years and have yet to experience bad service or poor food so am surprised by some of the negative reviews.
I last ate here on Sunday 03 November and left, as usual, satisfied with both food and service. and up and with a smile on my face.
Recommendations would be between cullen skink soup, tempura fish, pate, haggis, neeps and tatties with their signature whiskey cream sauce, followed by mains of chicken breast with leek sauce, roast of the day (with some of the tenderest beef I have ever tasted), salmon fillet, duck breast etc. I could go on but I would be hard pressed to advise anything not to order as all the food is excellent. Portion sizes are plentiful and you may have trouble finishing two full courses never mind three.
On top of that, they even make sure the plate is warm (roasting actually) which is a bonus to this reviewed as I cannot abide restaurants that serve hot food on cold plates. Drinks are reasonably priced and the 2 course early bird dinner, up to 4pm is a bargain at £12.
Service is very friendly and quick although we usually visit late lunch/early dinner so perhaps it may be slower at night if there are the same number of staff. You can eat ain the small, cosy bar, lounge with coal fire for those chilly nights or in the restaurant. There is also a garden area for those rare sunny days.
Not the easiest place to find if you don't have a car but definitely worth a trip if you are in the vicinity of the M77, Kilmarnock or Aryshire.
