“Friendly bar/restaurant”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This bar/restaurant is very popular with both local residents and frequented by travellers from the Ferry line to Ireland. It is a small "old world " bar/restaurant therefore has character and warmth. The staff are also warm, friendly people. The chef will not disappoint you with his cooking of the varied choices on the menu. Generous servings of excellent, tasty food make it one for the "must go back to" list! Inexpensive prices but satisfy expensive tastes!

“Snug pub, good for a pint”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Cozy little pub where the locals go for a pint. They have guinness and guinness extra cold and everyone is very nice. Don't order a pint of water though, but then again, don't do that anywhere in Scotland. It just looks weird. Besides, beer is about 94% water anyway.

“Good food and a really friendly bar”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I have been using the Harbour Bar whenever I am working in the Troon area. The bar is usually quite busy with a good friendly atmosphere and competitive pricing. The food is very good and there's plenty to choose from as well - be aware though that food isn't served on a Monday or Tuesday - more's the pity. Give it a try and I'm sure you will enjoy the experience

“Superb”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Outside it looks a bit run-down, but inside the welcome is genuine. I went with a friend and we both ordered pakora and we were not expecting much, especially as the price was very low. However the pakora and associated spiced onions were superb and much better than some dedicated Indian restaurants that I have been to. The bar maid could not have been more helpful. After an awful "Indian" meal at the Prestwick Taj, this place was a breath of fresh air. Well done!
