About The Canny Man
Amazing menu and fantastic food!!!! Superb service too
Visited 16/03/15, staff and service were fantastic. The entire menu looked incredible. I opted for something a little different and it did not disappoint. 5* food, 5* service and prices to match. Will definitely visit again soon.
Nice restuarant. Great service with good specials and a wide menu choice. Food was delivered on hot plates, quick service. 1st time here, but would go back.
The Canny Man is a well-known pub restaurant in Lugton, near Kilmarnock in Ayrshire, on the Glasgow to Irvine Road.
Traditional, Fresh Food and Bar Favourites
The Canny Man prides itself on its use of quality, local-sourced produce including seafood to create a variety of pub grub favourites.
Signature dishes include the steaks and grills, the traditional fish and chips and our fresh pizzas.
Welcoming, Informal Atmosphere
The Canny Man is very much a lively country pub, with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and an informal yet classy decor.
It can be both quiet and relaxing but also bustling come the evening, with live Scottish and Ceilidh music every second Sunday of the month.
There is a large separate bar, which offers a range of cocktails, malt whiskys and a selection of fine wines, alongside light bites and bar snacks.
