We had dinner and breakfast here. The food was good, as we'd expect from this chain. They have a pizza oven, so tried haggis pizza, it was fab! It was very clean and the staff where really nice.

On a National Holidays trip to nearby Monkton I always look for the nearest Wetherspoons and this was the West Kirk a very impressive old church which had been preserved to a very high standard however I was amazed at some of the prices Guinness was reasonably priced but when I decided to have a Bacardi & Coke I was amazed to see the price for a double was £6.50 which equates to £84 a bottle Thinking it must be a mistake I asked at the bar and was told it was due to the recent changes to the price structure for alcohol in Scotland so could not argue with that but the following day visited a Wetherspoons in CENTRAL Glasgow and was charged £2 less which would suggest the Scottish laws differ in different areas. Food prices in the West Kirk and the bar service was spot on but another let down was the hike to the toilet up past the pulpit past where I should imagine the choir sat and the further up to where the organ would have sat.I would suggest if yo want to go to the toilet plan well ahead Would I visit again NO don't think so

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit but it's a shame you weren't so pleased with our pricing. Unfortunately due to the licensing laws in South Ayrshire, we are double the price for a double measure of spirit and there is no way of changing this due to our license. Other areas of Scotland do have slightly different pricing structures that are allowed in their area.

My husband and I visited in June, service very poor - when we eventually received our meals looked as though they had been sitting for ages on hot plate, so bad my husband didn't eat much of his curry dish !!!
Definitely need more staff, Will not be visiting this Wetherspoons again, not up to the standard of other Wetherspoons ☹
