Popped in for a beer on a hot day in July. Excellent pint of Schiehallion in the beer garden, to get away from the hurley burley at the beach.

We, being me and 14 year old son had a very precious few hours here in the beer garden in the sunshine, with food that made us happy, It was precious.

Having walked out of a busy and well regarded Ayr eaterie's beer garden that was too noisy and way too expensive that must ramp up the prices tourist season - boo West of The Moon - remembered a past visit here and on the off chance that the 9 minute train journey and five minute walk from there would be better that noisy over priced place, took a gamble that more than paid off.

He was nonplussed that his scampi was king prawns in batter... other places would call it tempura and charge twice the price - took him half his plateful before he realised how much better real prawns are compared to his expected mechanically recovered fshy ick in breadcrumbs are. I really enjoyed my baked potato, didn't like the pate.

By the time we ordered pudding it was past last lunch orders and kitchen was closed, but...sshhh, don't tell chef, he got extra ice-cream with his fudge cake.

Loved it. x

Great friendly pub, well worth a visit. On Wednesday evenings they offer two steak dinners and a bottle of wine for £20, well presented and very good value.
