    I would highly recommend The Park Hotel for food. Starting with the ease of booking until leaving it all went very well. We were met by David our waiter, he was helpful and attentive during our visit. The choice of food and courses was really good. We opted only for the mains, we all chose something different. All dishes were tasty and well presented, if anything for me there was too much. David presented my brother / our table a beautiful combo dessert compliments of the chef. It was my brother's birthday so this made it even more special. We all agreed we would return.

    Poor dairy-free options for dessert. Sticky toffee pudding did not have the brandy basket as promised and the sauce was not warm.

    We had a great Valentines meal here. Food was really good, service was great too. It is slightly more expensive than some places in Kilamrnock but overall I felt it was good value. Would rate it 9/10.

    Food oksy nut not so good as previous visits. Fish and chips were fine but definitely smaller portion of fish. Worst thing was fact that food was not piping hot completely spoiled fish. In fact mushy peas were stone cold would say that hadn't been warmed at all. Just a bit disappointing!

    We went on a Wednesday night and it was full of Kilmarnock supporters so was very busy.We were there for a romantic meal so that spoiled it a little,however there was no trouble and an extra area for beer for them was provided. I didn't like the fact you could not order from the main menu that night because the football was on,we were disappointed as we wanted steak but to be able to do that we were advised we would need to wait 40min. The crayfish cocktail was obviously prepared well in advance as it was full of water at the bottom from the lettuce and cucumber.There was loads of crayfish which were incredibly tasty however.I had fish and chips as there were only approx 5 options,the fish was crispy and tasty but there was very little fish in it,mainly batter(which was crispy and tasty.)My husband had the chicken in peppercorn sauce which he loved. Overall it was spoiled with the football and the limited menu(we had no idea football was on)but we would go back and try it again. Our young server was very attentive and courteous.

    Beautiful food. had the cod wrapped in panchetta unfortunately the pea puree was unavailable so winter veg was given was a little dry was otherwise exceptional quality ingredients. Ordered a staropramen to accompany my main meal which never arrived once the mains had been finished I cancelled the pint however was offered the drink complimentary. When ordering deserts had requested a refill on our table water which never arrived. The table next to us had requested the same and they received there's within minutes so felt slightly ignored. Had a lovely meal and hopefully when I visit again the drinks service improves.
