Fantastic. Beautiful traditional building. Had lunch and it was delicious. Service was excellent.
Great vegan menu..... you have to ask for the vegan menu.
Definitely returning it's a 2 minute walk from the beach too.

Went here for lunch and drinks
They have a new menu which is even better than the last one
Large variety of food on offer which is good value for money
The food and service was excellent as usual
It was a really nice day so we took our drinks outside and sat in the beer garden
Looking forward to the summer and more visits to this excellent restaurant

We chose to take a visiting friend to Chestnuts and we were definitely pleased with our choice. Starters were Prawns, BIG Prawns. The mains were also excellent. It's easy to over indulge at the first course !! Staff were friendly and professional, easy parking and friendly bar -- all that's good and glorious in --- NOT a hotel chain
Thank you to the hard working staff, Oh its good value :)

Writing to tell you all that the prices at Chestnuts have gone up.The price no longer runs at Bar Supper prices but the price of a rather up market Restaurant not Pub Grub. It is a lovely Bar with nice atmosphere and lovely coal fire but not somewhere that can charge upscale prices .... Chestnuts... always loved you but now will not be coming every week.

Arrived without booking and were quickly shown to a table for four. Restaurant and bar were both quite busy for a midweek lunchtime and that is usually a good sign.
Menus brought and drinks order taken quickly. Waiting staff approached when they sensed we were ready to order. No pressure and no long delays.
There is a wide choice of meals which would suit all tastes. One of our party doesn't like fish or chicken so the choice became a little limited for her but there were a few meals she could choose.
Food arrived fairly quickly. Sufficient time was left between courses. The food itself was excellent. Well prepared and presented and very tasty. Cullen Skink was good although I found it a little salty but my friend who also had Cullen Skink added more salt so it is obviously a matter of taste. Almost all the plates were sent back cleared therefore I can assume that all enjoyed the food.
This was a first return visit for some time and I was not disappointed. I will return and I recommend it to anyone looking for good food in Ayr.
