Roast beef to die for with a lovely gravy and tasty veggies. What a perfect Sunday. As always special dietary requirements catered for no problem at all. Always great service, love this place.

It is on the main road between Ayr and Dalmellington. Have also had family meals and found the service fantastic. There is outside seating but have never noticed people eating outside.

Visiting Ayr Hospital noticed this restaurant was situated a few minutes away. Immediately greeted on our arrival and ushered to a tab le. A clean pleasant establishment, which surprisingly was quiet. Our drinks and food were excellent, the staff were helpful and pleasant. Toilets were immaculate. Next visit to Ayr we shall return
