We have eaten here with family on a number of occasions and always found a varied menu and excellently prepared dishes. The settings are great as is the service you receive.

The Cullen Skink and Steaks are recommended.

There is also a great bar with a fine range of whisky and beers.

There is a good beer garden too for those rare days when the weather allows.

a cosy, comfortable, convivial Scottsh hotel, in the golfing county of Ayrshire. A couple of minutes walk from Ayr beach and overlooking the local golf course, it's ideal as a base for exploring the Clyde & Ayrshire coast. The standard of food is of the highest quality, with a lovely ambience in the bar used by both locals & guests, with golfing paraphernalia, though out.

We popped in for the off chance for a nice place for lunch and were not disappointed. Busy and told we might have to wait but nice lounge in bar with fire on. Our food was plentiful and service friendly - our wee 8 yr old loved her tempura chicken and chips. Really enjoyed it and would recommend for sure.

We decided to have a family Sunday dinner at the chestnuts in Ayr. Staff are great; very courteous, friendly and attentive. The restaurant is very busy so seems popular. For me, the food was ok but lacked a bit of finesse. I had the duck special but was presented covered in a thick black gravy so couldn't actually see the duck. It was cooked fine but wasn't the most appetising for this reason.
Apart from the coupe, the other desserts we had weren't the most generous of portions for the cost.
