Busy restaurant within golf and spa hotel on Ayrshire coast

A short walk from the popular Gailes beach, The Gailes Hotel is on Marine Drive in between Irvine and Troon. A family-owned, four-star luxury hotel with golf and spa facilities, it has a welcoming bar and restaurant called Zest. Warm walnut and gorgeous soft furnishings create a modern, contemporary look inside the restaurant. When the sun is shining, the comfortable seating of the outside terraces provides an elegant setting for a glass of wine or cold beer. The Gailes Hotel is part of the SimpsInns group.

From brunch to lunch, light bites to evening meals, the chefs at Zest Restaurant like to use local produce where possible.
