Girvan’s Harbourhead Restaurant places
great emphasis on the standard of food it serves and on good old-fashioned standards of service.
But don’t take our word for it.
Journalist Brian Viner, sent northward to cover the Open Golf Championship at Turnberry in 2009 for The Independent,
was so impressed with the food at the Harbourhead Restaurant that he was glowing in his praise.
“The Harbourhead produced seafood fit for the gods,” he wrote in his column,
adding: “Moreover, the staff were charming.
two ravenous scribes from The Observer looked in well after 10 one night, the chef cheerfully ploughed back into
the kitchen and rustled up two huge platefuls of top-notch curry."
“The Harbourhead had achieved what I had considered impossible, all but obliterating the memories of some truly
horrible gastronomic experiences north of the border.”
For those who regularly dine with us, Brian Viner’s praise will come as no surprise. For, like much of south-west
Scotland, the Harbourhead Restaurant is something of a hidden gem, well worth seeking out.
We look forward to welcoming you to this honest, down-to-earth restaurant where the value
is very much on the plate and in the friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
