We were so looking forward to our birthday family meal at The Kailyard. A good deal via 5pm with 3 courses from £39 to experience some innovative top class cooking. Checked out the website, it looked awesome, booked via 5pm.
On arrival, there was no record of our reservation and a lack of willingness to find a table until I produced my 5pm confirmation. When seated, we were handed some dog eared menus which happily announced 3 courses for £39, so this had me wondering what the 5pm deal in fact was.
The food was good, you could tell the ingredients were excellent and they were well presented but I'm certain that Mr Nairn would have been frustrated by the way the fish dishes had been over cooked. The desserts on paper sounded stunning and we all picked different ones so we could try as many as possible, but, they were poor. They tasted as if they had been lying around the kitchen all day. The offer of coffee was accompanied with the bill. Free coffee, a nice touch!! The Kailyard is no doubt a stunning location to eat some of the finest ingredients Scotland has to offer, all imagined by one of Scotland's top chefs. It's a pity that we visited on an off night.
