We have used Highgrove on a number of occasions but its about time I reviewed it. As part of the costly and costly group of excellent hotels and restaurants I always expect high quality and this has always been deliver.
We visited with my parents in law for Easter lunch and I was delighted to find that there was no set menu and instead the usual excellent a la carte menu was on offer.
First though Highgrove is set up the hill in Loans providing wonderful panoramic views across Troon, Ayr and across to Arran. I see that they have added an outdoor seating area that will be spectacular when the temperatures rise!
The restaurant was pretty full but we were seated and attended to quickly and politely. The staff are always pleasant and on hand to assist.
I had excellent fresh mussels that were so fresh I had to wond. If they were straight out of the sea I was looking over. Al other starters were of the same high standard as we're the main courses. Brilliant. No one could quite manage a pudding after the generous servings of starter and mains but for those being served around us they looked excellent as well.
Price wise all of the costley establishments are, in my opinion, cheap for the standard of food and surroundings.
