“Great location + great food !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Living about a mile from Highgrove can mean temptation on your doorstep but I've only eaten there four times this year....so far....and having hardly been there in 2012 !

Dined with golfing friends on a Friday evening in April.....attended a wedding at the end of August.....eaten there twice in the last month with family.

The location on the hill with views out over the Firth of Clyde is truly wonderful and the setting was PERFECT for the wedding. The food served to us at the wedding was as good as I've ever eaten at a wedding or other large function.

Sometimes menus and chefs change and just now Highgrove clearly has a great blend - superb range of choices with excellent presentation and taste.

The golf buddies were truly impressed with the food + wine and I expect our family will also now head up the hill to Highgrove much more often than before !

Minor criticism (which others have noted) is that when the restuarant is busy, such as on a Saturday evening, the service can be a bit on the slow side.

Overall I'd highly recommend Highgrove for a WONDERFUL dining experience - with the view as an added and free bonus !

“Wonderful View; Wonderful Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Just a short ride into the country outside Troon, this was an excellent restaurant experience: Great view, very nice indoor and outdoor facility, and excellent food and wine at reasonable (for Scotland) prices.

“Excellent Dining Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Had lunch here today with some friends who eat here regularly. Very impressed. Fish, chicken and pork dishes - all beautifully cooked and imaginatively presented. Really loved the 'Spicy Fish Stew'. The 'Banoffee Coupe' is a Banoffee Mountain! I just couldn't finish it! Friends were delighted with their 'Chocolate and Orange Bread and Butter Pudding, with Sauce Anglais and Costley ice cream'. Generous portions too. Very professional and pleasant staff and preparation of one dish - came back with comment from Chef - "would prepare as we wished." Well you can't ask for more than that! Lovely, relaxing environment and exceptional views. Very reasonably priced too.

“Brilliant Meal & Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Went with my son and daughter in law plus their two girls after another local seafood restaurant had run out of mussels and lobster - so we cancelled and phoned for a table! This was a return trip for me but a first time for the rest of the family. Being part of the Costley Group you know you're in for a treat. Well all the family had a starter and main from the menu which choice was exactly what they wanted. Service was first class and the meals were delicious. Not the cheapest place but I thought it as excellent value for money. Will be back again!
