Informal dining in Ayrshire at its finest

You need to feel good to enjoy a great meal to the full and this is guaranteed by our spacious, elegant yet  relaxing candlelit restaurant, with its many intimate spaces creating an atmosphere of peacefulness. Spaces are named after local and Scottish places, such as Lochinvar, Kintyre, Marine Court (after a famous local hotel) and Hollybush. Once you get to know us you can ask for them by name.

Enjoy a whole spectrum of stylish Scottish based cuisine, which is skilled, assured and great value for money. From delicious Scottish breakfasts (with continental breakfast always available) to delicious suppers and dinners prepared imaginatively and carefully by Fraser Collins, the hotel's head chef, and his team.  Fraser has sourced the best of local produce, establishing his own distinctive style, producing mouth-watering combinations of flavours, all artistically presented ensuring you feast your eyes before your tasting. Local flavours dominate and shine through, all capturing the natural flavours of Scotland. In doing so we can produce a variety of dishes that include meat, fish, poultry, vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. We are aware of peoples choices and allergies so please ask your server if you are unsure about any dish.

We are proud to offer our guests a fresh selection of dishes that change with the seasons. Local ingredients are used wherever possible. Please do not hesitate to ask if there is anything you would like us to make for you - before you come, preferably!  We will try our best to accommodate. Enjoy!
