Completely unrelated, but where's the good spots to eat/takeaways in ayr?

Headed to Craig Tara for a week soon with the kids.

Also f**k Kilmarnock. 

Thank you.

Ayr is not as bad as some people make out , coming into Doonfoot from Craig Tara you have a couple of good takeaways at the Co op on your left , chippy/pizza and Indian , both decent . Next up a few hundred metres is the Balgarth Pines , great beer garden, good food . On the bridge just along the road is the Secret Garden , good snacks and  lunches , got a cracking deck over the River Doon . Push on about a mile and you have the Chestnuts Hotel , very good food and beer garden , few hundred metres from Ayr Beach . Nearby The Chestnuts is the Fox and Willow , great food , best beer garden in town . The toen centre you have The Maridian , good food cafe bar , Smiths cheep food . You also have The Treehouse which has great food and its own boozer The T Bar ,buzzing night spot , bands 2am etc . The prices are tasty though . If you just want a geezers boozer : Tam O’Shanters , Wee Windows , Billy Bridges ....

4 year ago this month work begun to secure the Station Hotel and it's still got it's white dome on it now.

Shows how much work the numpties have made in the last 4 years to resolve it instead of paying over £60k per month to hire the scaffolding, the company that own the scaffolding will be laughing all the way to the bank!

They're all as bad as each other, councils should be run by local people with no ties to party politics

Dundee fan living in Ayr.

For eating in, I like The Fox and the Willow, @home Thai, Ayr India.

Willie Wastles is decent for cheapish food and Tempura is good.

Plenty takeaways around the place as others have mentioned.

There are also some decent Indian restaurants in the town. Ayr India isn't bad and The 3 Idiots is very good. Not so sure about the Ruppee Room these days. For Italian food Cecchini's is the place.

Very unusual that the stretch between where all the rich people stay and the completely dead town centre is still nice. I am very smart.

I heard similar stories about both.

Ah, the Magnum. That's a blast from the past!

It was brilliant until they got rid of all the fun things about it and then it was just another pool.

TBH The Citadel's best days are behind it. A new leisure centre in the town centre would have been great.

Totally agree, incredibly short sighted by the Tory regime and friends

I take it the proposed new leisure centre was going to be where the empty mall is?

The Kyle Centre, aye. f**k knows what they’ll do with it now that it’s just lying empty.

No the leisure centre was to be where Hourstons and the Arran Mall was, previous regime punted all the tennants out of Arran Mall so it's now empty too.

The Kyle Centre was supposed to be run by a private company but no doubt that'll have gone pear shaped with the financial situation

Aye that’s the one. As you say the developments will probably never happen with the Kyle Centre now either so you’re left with two huge spaces being used as nothing. Couldn’t even tell you the last time I used the Arran Mall as anything else other than using it to cut onto the high street from that car park.

I think the issue with the town centre leisure centre was that they were basically proposing to build a much shitter version of the citadel, with far less facilities.
