My wife arranged to take me to this lovely country house hotel for a birthday treat and we enjoyed one night with dinner and breakfast, occupying one of the lovely large rooms on the ground floor of the main hotel (new wing).
We checked in at 2.30 and decided to have coffee and a scone. Sadly the scones did not appear to be of that day's baking and the coffee was not the best. It was gritty and of poor taste.
Fortunately dinner was an entirely different affair and restored our faith in Lochgreen, a hotel we have been visitng regularly since 1992.
Canapés were served in the drawing room and we chose an excellent house champagne to accompany. The cheese canapés were even warm and exceedingly delicious.
For starters I chose scallops which were perfectly cooked and complemented by a perfectly balanced apple sauce. My wife's haddock veloute with poached egg was historic.
My main of fillet of beef was again perfect though sadly I ordered a glass of red wine and this did not arrive until my second last bite! My wife's red mullet with scallops was faultless.
Our desserts were beautifully presented and simply stunning. Coffee and petits fours in the lounge were a perfect ending and this time the coffee was excellent.
At £39.95 this must be the best value fine dining in Scotland?
We slept really well to the strains of a wonderful band in a marquee in which was being celebrated the Ayrshire hospice ball. Great atmosphere.
Breakfast has been improved at LGH and we enjoyed berries, fruit salad, smoked salmon, omelettes and delicious pastries and croissants.
We cannot wait to return to this gem and the well deserved crown of the Costley empire.
Unbeatable value for money, seamless service and great Cuisine.
