My family has eaten here on New Year's Day for at least five years. The food this year was as good as it's always been with a good selection. The service however was very poor. It took three attempts to get the right menus, we had to ask for bread three times, unused wine glasses weren't cleared away, main course...

Had a meal here on New Years Day. Everything was really good. Staff were excellent - efficient and attentive. Food was very enjoyable....the menu had something for all tastes. This is somewhere I would not hesitate to go back to, based on this visit.

We were attending a wedding in Ayr so my family and I booked 4 rooms for two nights. As the wedding was in St Leonard's church the location of the Carrick Lodge was perfect. On the Friday evening some of us were going to eat in the hotel restaurant but when we went down for dinner at 7pm they were...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do apologise that you were not asked when you checked in whether you wished to have dinner at the hotel.

Had lunch with my Daughter here. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was excellent and portion sizes very good. I had pate and siloin steak and my Daughter, a vegetarian, had a fruit starter followed by a vegetable goulash. We very heartily reccomend this restaurant.

Only here for 1 night but we were made most welcome by all staff. Our room was very clean and comfortable overlooking hotel garden. There is an extensive dinner menu and also many items on a separate Gluten Free menu. Food was excellent including breakfast with a large choice of hot food. There is also a well stocked bar. Good...

We were apprehensive as this long-established restaurant with rooms has changed hands. Some locals claim it has changed but I don't agree. The decor and menu look exactly the same and I believe the new owner also kept on a lot of the former staff. One improvement is the extensive gluten free menu. The food was as good as ever.

Went out for Dinner with my wife to celebrate what would have been the 92nd birthday of my late mother. My mother used to go to this restaurant twice a week on her own for lunch for 6 years following the death of my father. I would join her once every 3 weeks or so as I lived in England...

Current deal offers 2 beautiful courses from the set menu, plus coffee or tea for £12.50. Prawn cocktail and Cajun Chicken (with sour cream dip) yum, yum. This is my favourite place to have lunch at the moment.
