We’re pretty sure that Robert Burns never wrote an ode to afternoon tea.
We are equally sure that he would have waxed lyrical about afternoon tea with Hendrick’s Gin at Fairfield House Hotel in Ayr, deep in Burns country.
The four star Fairfield House Hotel enjoys a superb, picturesque location on the Ayrshire coast, with panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Arran.
Sumptuously furnished, the interiors combine traditional Scottish country house touches with all the contemporary facilities of a modern establishment.
Drink it all in with today’s Big Deal.
Available noon to 4pm, seven days a week, the offer is for two people to have afternoon tea accompanied by a Hendrick’s Gin and tonic for each guest.
Made just down the road in Girvan, Hendrick’s kick started the current gin boom when it launched in 1999.
Known for its flavours of cucumber and rose, it is the ideal accompaniment to a sunny afternoon tea.
Of course, guests are welcome to swap the gin for a mocktail.
The award-winning head chef at Fairfield House Hotel uses fresh, local and seasonal produce and the hotel has had AA Rosette awards for a number of years.
The restaurant, lounge, bar and decking area offer modern and comfortable dining.
In the warmer months, al fresco dining is available on the terrace which has stunning sea views over to Arran.
Out and about
There is so much to explore in Ayrshire and it is all within easy reach of Fairfield House. Culzean Castle and its grounds is one of the most romantic spots in Scotland, while fans of the national bard will enjoy a visit to the Burns Birthplace Museum.
Weather permitting, golf is an obvious obsession in Ayrshire, but Ayr Racecourse offers alternative sporting thrills particularly during the jumps season.
Fairfield House Hotel has accumulated plenty of positive feedback on TripAdvisor. The following comments are taken from longer, recent reviews:

Make a day of it
As the weather turns sunny, this Big Deal would be perfect as part of a day out.
A walk along the seafront followed by afternoon tea with a Hendrick’s Gin would make a lovely treat.
And with free parking at the hotel for guests, Fairfield House makes it easy to spoil your friends or family.
