On arrival, this place has it all. The views are exceptional. A beautiful sunset over Arran and a superb play park across on the green adjacent to the bowling green. Should be idylic in reality it is far from it. Looking from the outside, the building is in need of varnish to the wooden fascia and the awnings a good wash or refit. It looks tired but despite having been two years before and disappointed, I returned courtesty of a gift voucher and I hasten to add, an open mind. Unfortunately the staff again were rude bordering on hostile with the exception of the barman who at least knew how to be friendly to customers. I commented to the dark haired waitress about the weather and was ignored! We felt like intruders forcing them to feed us for free! Despite his limp, the nice barman could easily run circles round the rest of the serving staff and would do well to teach them the art of smiling, greeting guests, idle chit chat and asking if everything is alright with them! My husband was not given a steak knife and it was impossible to attract anyone's attention to ask for one. I feel sorry for the chef who obviously works hard and provides excellent food but despite having money left over on the gift voucher, I will not return. Why do the owners not do someting about it before it's too late? Superb food and chef catered for dairy and gluten free needs. Perhaps owners wanting retirement?
