    Having been asked to confirm my booking, which I did, my friend and I arrived at the venue to find the property fully locked up. No notification had been sent and we had to look for an alternative restaurant which thankfully we found. Very disappointed to turn up to closed doors.

    Well worth a visit may be one of the older establishments in Kimarnock but has moved with the times and gives excellent service and value for money

    I always like the Goldberry but unfortunately this time I did not. When we arrived 4 of us the waitress told us that the chicken delviery had not been delviered so all chicken dishes were off the menu. I chose cold meat salad which on the menu stated that it came with coleslaw.... I can only describe it as a side salad..... no coleslaw and when I asked for salad cream they didnt have any. My friend chose steak pie which was full of gravy and very little meat and was cold. We were offered something different and had a chicken sandwich and a chicken curry as the delivery arrived?? but was very poor indeed. On the menu was also apple pie but when we went to order it was not ready!!! Having paid the bill in full which was around £80 with drinks I told the waitress that it was not what we usually came to expect at the Goldberry she then told her manager who offered us a round of drinks to compensate. The manager has still to appear to apologise this was left to the waitress which I found strange.... not a good way to keep and treat your customers. Will not be returning anytime soon and have told my friends the same.

    To much focus on take away service which is boxed in main restaurant not a good look and staff focus more on take away boxing food no wonder this restaurant has lost a lot of customers

    Food was lovely.Great value for money. Only slight complaint was the service was slightly slow but the there were only 2 waitresses doing both bar and serving food so probably couldn’t be helped, as I’m sure like most places staff shortages is an issue. Overall great meal.

    We arrived and were shown to our table,and waited 20 minute before anyone approached us even to ask for a drink.we orderd out food and it arrived 25 minutes later.we had almost finished our drink before our food arrived and we were goin7to leave. This is the third occasion that we have had extremely poor service and do not plan on going back anytime soon. Their focus seems to be on deliveries,we have tried this service snc found this to be poor also with the wrong order being delivered and the food being like warm.

    With heavy heart I could not recommend this restaurant which was one of my favourites pre covid It needs to decide if it’s a restaurant or take away ,service was appalling staff were on phones I’m assuming dealing with take away orders while neglecting the sit in customers When food finally appeared it was a bit of a hit and miss ,some of the dishes ok others like the pasta was awful spaghetti swimming in a bland sloppy sauce and lukewarm One particular staff member was rude pulling faces banging dishes down ,probably upset that we disturbed her from watching a movie on the tv she sat in front of watching while we tried several times to get her attention this was in between her checking her Facebook messenger if I had known her name I would have contacted her through social media One young man was working his socks off unfortunately for us it was dealing with the takeaway orders, I discovered he was the manager and while it was admirable that he was getting stuck in my advise to him that he should be managing the rest of the staff, one young woman was very helpful when we complained . Finally it was the Mother’s Day menu and they’re were only three tables in so they weren’t busy with sit in customers but we had to take a back seat to the takeaways and we didn’t get the chocolates that were on the menu 🥲 Sadly we won’t return

    Waited over an hour & a half for food, no body said there would be a delay. The place was half full on Mothers Day, so should not have been any problems. Ordered afters which didn’t turn up, so paid the bill & left. Food was mediocre at best. Very poor all round , was in Kilmarnock for a long weekend, could do a lot better.

    Unfortunately greed outweighed customer service, the restaurant was full but staff prioritised the afternoon tea deliveries and Just Eat deliveries. It took them over 3 hours to serve my party of 3 people, 2 courses from their set menu. We had to repeatedly ask where our food was, waited I’ve an hour for our mains, the food was good, but then waited another hour for our desserts. Cold desserts with ice cream were served in really hot bowls. Only one staff member appeared genuinely apologetic and he arranged a discount when we paid the bill. However we will not be back, it wasted our mum’s Mother’s Day.

    Offered a table not suitable. The high table and stools is not suitable for a 75 year old!! Asked for another table which was arranged but took some time and so did the service afterwards. Tables who were seated after us had there order taken first. Our dessert order was forgotten about so took ages - only offered extra ice cream. Although the food was delicious the service was disappointing.

    2 courses for 13.95 deal. We were the only 2 customers at 5.30. Service therefore was excellent. Starter portions were huge and decent quality. And the mains were fine too, Good honest pub grub.
