Visited this restaurant with my husband as he'd read the great reviews on this site. It's in a nice area, easily walkable to or from the town centre and the dining room was comfortable. The service was excellent as we were shown to our table immediately on arrival and drinks were always kept topped up. My only issue with this... More

My elderly parents live in Ayr and The Chestnuts is the place of choice when it comes to eating out during family get togethers. There's a huge choice on the menu and the food is top quality, from fab starters through to some amazing desserts. The ambience is good too and the prices affordable. You simply can't go wrong at...

After a disappointing meal at a favourite restaurant last weekend we decided to go back to the Chestnuts, where we have always had an excellent meal. True to form, our mains were brilliant, very tasty, beautifully presented and nicely served. We then shared a sweet course, and are glad we shared because it was huge and so much a pleasure....

I didn't think the menu was that great and struggled to make a choice. My starter of mushrooms and main of chicken breast with creamy cajun sauce were both very bland. The sticky toffee pudding was nice though and I can't fault the staff who were really friendly and attentive.

I went here with my sisters just before Christmas where we all had a superb lunch with very comfortable surroundings and great service. This was about my tenth visit to this place as the food is just so good and the menu is tasteful and changes on a regular basis. This time was a full Christmas lunch for all, which... More
