WESTERLY is the training restaurant for Ayr Campus or Ayrshire College. This AA College Rosette award winning restaurant is situated on the second floor affording outstanding views across the river Ayr to the town centre. The food is modern classic and normally served as a 3 course lunch menu, usually with at least 3 choices per course. Offering great value food, and wonderfully attentive service, we surprise all our new customers with the quality and value provided
This was my second visit to Westerly. The first visit was first class, I assume the catering students were in their final year. This time was not as good food wise. My sister and I ordered risotto only to be given a kind of vegetable mixture which was not very good. The rolls were brick hard. The staff were lovely and most helpful but the food was disappointing. It was reasonable price wise. Still worth a visit.
My wife and I had a excellent lunch yesterday. We did not have a starter. unfortunately our choice of main course, pork with a mustard sauce, was finished so we chose confit of duck. Well cooked and presented but a nice orange sauce or similar would have enhanced this dish. Lemon tart and “deconstructed” doughnuts with raspberry coulis sweets were superb. Edward, our waiter was very efficient and courteous. Overall a very nice lunch experience and we intend to visit again with friends.
Drink service was incredibly slow- 25 minute wait. Arrangements for paying for the drinks were inappropriate and somewhat chaotic. The menu descriptions were wrong in relation to gluten free which could have had disastrous consequences. Despite giving a week's notice that a guest would require gluten free options and an assurance this would not be a problem this information had not been passed on. Credit to our waitress who saved the day. She was fantastic. The " entertainment" was rather low key . Good value for money and food was lovely.
First time visiting Inver and have already booked to return. Service was great and food was exceptional, I only wish I’d known about this gem of a restaurant sooner. Well done everyone. Many thanks.
Excellent service and restaurant quality food even Greg Wallace and John Torode would be happy
This place is a hidden gem, great value for money. All students are helpful & pleasant. The meal was really lovely, well cooked & presented. We go once a month & this year the meals have been great.
Took a friend for a birthday treat lunch. She was very impressed as were we and is hoping to return soon with her friend. Well done everyone yet again.

amazing place to have lunch. terrific value for money. Staff charming and students lovely. Give it a try.....you won't be disappointed.
This is a lovely restaurant to visit and Ashley was great front of house. You dealt with our changes of booking quickly and efficiently and courteously. The food is varied and well cooked. Given that this is a training restaurant you kind of expect some blips in food service but here, that is not the case. Thank you to everyone for all your efforts.
Visited with our son and daughter in law on the 21.11.18. Every bit as good as last week. Our sons first visit with you and he was very impressed with every aspect of his visit. We will return
It's always a real pleasure to visit Inver. The staff and students are friendly and courteous, the food is always imaginative and delicious. And such great value for money.
Thank you to everyone for such a delightful meal. Food +++++. Service +++++. Atmosphere +++++. Just couldn’t fault it. Already decided that we shall a return visit soon.
Wonderful food served by cheery staff.
Excellent value for money. Food bit exotic for my liking but then it is a place of learning. My companions were delighted with menu choice.
I had fabulous birthday celebrations with a group of friends. I would recommend Inver anytime. Great service.
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, 2 of my party had not been before and they were very impressed with Inver and all thats it stands for!
As always, it was a real pleasure. The meal was really tasty and I felt like I was at the best restaurant in town. The place is so unique and quite secretive that it makes me feel like I know one of the greatest secrets of Ayr, and, among the few, I am worthy. I wish all the staff knew that we, your faithful customers, are very understanding when it comes to their skills. After all, it is a training restaurant. We admire their efforts and even if they make mistakes, it never spoils the pleasure.
Beautiful food, fast service and a great atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
Excellent food and given it's a training environment, good friendly attentive service. Will visit regularly.
Booked for a party of 11 and the food was delicious. Service was a little slow but we understood the students are still training so it was still acceptable. The restaurant is looking lovely and the students were all dressed very smart and spoke in a professional manner. They could doing with being a little more confident so they can be heard if it is busy but again understandable as it is the start of the year and confidence will grow. The only complaint we had was that the coffee machine was broken so this was unavoidable. Hopefully it will be fixed soon and we will definitely book again.
Excellent meal with impeccable service.We will definitely be booking again soon !
