    Excellent Sunday roast. £24.95/person may seem expensive, but the quality and portion sizing was worth every penny.

    Really enjoyed our visit for breakfast. Food and surroundings were excellent. There was only one other couple in the restaurant during our visit. Service would have been five star had we not been given and payed for the other couples bill which we didn’t notice until we had left.

    Hi there, Just to say whilst we were very satisfied with the quality of food and of service, we were more than a little concerned How close the next table was. If I moved my chair back at all , the chair hit the chair behind which was also a table of four. On reflection, we should have asked to be moved, however it was a special occasion and we were entertaining guests And did not wish to cause a fuss. In these times it is difficult to understand why the staff were filling all the tables close to each other when there were ample vacant tables to allow sensible social distancing between all. We will return but on reflection will have no hesitation in future to ask for a change of table.

    Service was very polite but very slow. Not busy so was quiet atmosphere. No raspberry gin from bar, had ran out, surprising for hospitality. Used to be chunky fries which made my dining better for me. Now skinny fries which made it feel like a McDonalds. Restaurant was very clean and staff very presentable and very polite, good staff and very accommodating.

    We were met upon arrival with not the best of greetings we were then seated at a table which was next to a door which was continually opened by staff and customers alike to either serve food outside or for customers to take children away from their table which for me was really cold and certainly not comfortable. The Dunes was extremely busy and noisy due to a large booking staff had no interaction with the customers service was poor and when I mentioned this upon leaving the female server said that they were really busy and could not provide a full service certainly no excuse in dealing with the public. I have been to the Dunes before and was so looking forward to returning with my sister as a birthday present left feeling utterly disappointed.

    This restaurant does not cater for people with allergies I think that your menu is very restrictive and the quality is not up to standard We had to send the french fries back to the kitchen, they had been reheated and were not palatable Having had the experience of dining at turnberry we expected this to be similar and as it was a birthday treat it was very disappointing
