Inhabiting a stately early 20th-century pile with extensive grounds in central Ayr not far from the seafront, Ellisland House Hotel is a popular base for tourists looking to explore Burns country, head to Ayr racecourse or play a spot of golf, as well as diners brought in regularly by the well-regarded restaurant at this Costley and Costley-owned venue. 'Elegantly decorated but with a contemporary twist' as they put it – leather backed chairs and booths, wooden-panelled walls and lots of natural light from the cupola – the lounge and restaurant, which open out onto a large leafy patio in summertime, offer morning coffee with cakes and scones through to lunches and dinners. An extensive à la carte menu includes dishes such as marburry smoked salmon, curried spicy lamb and pan-fried fillet of trout. The Ellisland also lays on a carvery seven days, full of freshly cooked roasts with market vegetables, potatoes and trimmings.
