After nearly two years, twelve months of trading, through various lockdowns and many restrictions, Macfarlane is headed on a new journey.

In July 2020 we took on a huge challenge; with very little previous hospitality experience, we jumped on board to build upon the existing reputation of Macfarlane restaurant, to maintain exceptional quality of food and excellent customer service.

Since then, personal business commitments have expanded, and as our lives evolve so do businesses. We are therefore delighted to announce we will be passing on this legacy and reputation to a new patron, David Storrie. 

David is an ambitious local independent business owner who, just as we have, has proved to be successful in the last two years despite the challenges. We believe he will bring his knowledge and experience into this venue and put his stamp on it.

It has been a personal journey for all of us involved, especially for myself. I can certainly say we have achieved all that we set out to do. I am very proud of the customer service and quality of food we have offered to Ayr.

Our front of house staff have provided an exceptional dining experience and all of our chefs have helped to push and innovate in the kitchen. I want to thank you, current and past. You all know who you are! Also to all the people involved in the background of the business who have contributed to this success.

Finally, I would like to say a thank you to all the individual guests who have been with us from the start of our journey at Macfarlane in 2020. Each one of you has contributed to the learning curve and I'm extremely grateful to you for holding us to high expectations, providing consistent feedback and allowing us to learn and grow.

All good things come to an end, and for us this has been an amazing experience so we intend to go out with a bang! So please join us in celebrating the last two weeks of service - we will be delighted to spend our last two weeks in your company - you have been the most supportive and positive clientele we could have wished for!!

We shall be hosting our last service on the 28th May, before we pass on our premises and hospitality to David. We are unable to commit to any bookings beyond that date, but we are sure you will hear all about the new arrangements in due course!

That’s all for now folks!
