When myself and Nicola head out for lunch or dinner, I have good intentions to post a review but for one reason or another, I end up not getting anything written. I would prefer to post reviews as close to our visit as possible whilst the experience is still in my mind, however life sometimes gets in the way and as the weeks roll on, a review from a time long forgotten doesn't have the same impact. Moving forward, I plan on posting quick reviews on more places that we have eaten. These post will be intentionally shorter that my usual reviews but will still aim to get the experience across.
The first restaurant to get the 'quick review' is Scotts at Troon Yacht Haven. Scotts is part of the Buzzworks Holdings, a growing entertainments group in Ayrshire. The restaurant is very trendy in style with just enough of a nautical theme to remind you that Scotts sits in a raised position overlooking The marina at Troon.
We were at Scotts on Saturday evening for an early bird dinner as part of a 40th birthday surprise for my brother-in-law Philip. We have eaten at Scotts a few times in the past and always enjoyed the food but been let down by poor service. I did have some slight concerns that the service would struggle again whilst trying to serve almost 30 diners, including a handful of attention seeking children. As it turned out, I had no reason to worry as the service provided by all of the restaurant staff who took care of our group was fantastic throughout. All of our group enjoyed their meal so for the purposes of this review, I am only going to talk about the meal that myself and Nicola had.
