We booked for 20 people as a birthday dinner. The staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and they even came through as a group with the birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday to the birthday girl of 60. The food was fantastic as well, big portions and delicious too. What more can I say? Well worth a visit.

Lovely setting on the out skirts of Kilwinning. A destination dining experience. Must have a healthy appetite as portions are large, there are no Monday night super deals, its a constant menu with a list of specials. Selection is above average and helpful welcoming staff are on call to guide you if required. The one very minor fault of the... More

Overall a good experience. The young waiting staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was ok but portion sizes huge! The older waiting staff were very non smiling and business like. They could take a lesson from the younger servers. The barista could also learn to make a decent coffee! Weak, cool espresso doesn't finish a meal well.

Went for dinner on Friday evening, never booked but were able to be seated in a nice corner. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was lovely, king prawn tempura to start then pan fried see bass which was cooked to perfection. The portion size was large therefore could not have dessert. I would definitely recommend and will return... More

The food was excellent and plentiful, perhaps too much for senior customers. The ambience was great, the staff very attentive and the quality excellent.

I had my first visit to The Blair last month and I literally loved it! The selection to choose from was huge! The specials were great as well. It took me a good while to decide because of the huge choice (not a complaint) We decided not to go for a starter and I'm quite glad we did in hind... More

We found this place last year, and just keep going back. It's getting really busy now though. You need to book, to make sure you get a table

The venue has a relaxed cozy vibe. The staff are always full of smiles. The food is rustic and homely. This is a firm favorite of ours within Ayrshire.
