We were passing and went in for some Lunch. There were six of us,three couples. The staff and service was good and friendly. The food was absolutely great although thought it was slightly a bit pricey. The restaurant seemed to have been upgraded as we were informed and it looks good . Worth a visit if passing .

I have been here a few times since it opened again when we take trips along to Ayr and have always enjoyed it. It looks really lovely inside since it was done up. The new restaurant is very good and the parking near by is a plus. We come to the panto here each year as it has always been... More

Hi - glad you enjoyed the refurbished theatre and the show. However I'm concerned at your comment about hearing inappropriate language from the stage. Could you possibly email some more details of this incident so I can investigate? Jeremy.wyatt@ayrgaiety.co.uk More

Best breakfast in town by far. We also enjoy Lunch here. The Cook is creative and skilled and it is a pleasant place to sit.

Beautifully restored, and an excellent venue that is well worth a visit. We went to see the Broons, and the show was memorable. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Last night was the first time I saw a production at the newly revamped Gaiety Theatre in Ayr, a Welsh Ballet production of Roald Dahl's version of Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. I was not disappointed. The ballet was beautifully staged with a kick of sly humour in it (true Roald Dahl style). The audience lapped... More

After a total refurbishment it is great to see this great old building up and running once more. The building work done has been done tastefully with many of the original late baroque rococo features still in place. As a child i attended shows here during summer holidays in Ayr and as years went bye my wife Katie and i... More

A lovely old theatre in the art-deco style with an opening day of 10 September 2016, the building has seen a huge restoration carried out sympathetically. The tour of the building and the knowledge of the staff and friends of the theatre was outstanding. Well worth a visit.

Attended the Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery night....have been to similar productions at other venues but this one just seemed flat, almost amateurish. Perhaps it just wasn't what I was expecting given previous experiences. The actors and actresses were enjoyable but the whole production seemed to revolve around bad puns and one liners.
