Welcome to Braidwoods Restaurant

Braidwoods is run by husband and wife team, Keith and Nicola Braidwood. Both partners are “Master Chefs of Great Britain”.

With reduced covers unfortunately for now to keep everyone safe.

Also a change in opening times, Wednesday to Saturday lunch and dinner, 12 to last food order 1.30 , dinner 7 to last food order 8.30pm.

We hope you understand it will be more difficult to get a table Friday and Saturday until we can return to normal. Also will no longer be able to cater for parties over 12.

Please call Keith or Nicola if you would like to make a reservation 01294 833544

Thank you and we look forward to welcoming those who have supported us the last 26 years and hopeful lots of new ones.

**We can are no longer able to cater for tables over six or tables with more than 2 households. Also when entering the restaurant or walking out you must wear a face mask. Thanks for your understanding, Keith and Nicola Braidwood **

The restaurant has a Michelin star (we are the only Ayrshire restaurant to have this award) and has just been awarded it again for the 21st consecutive year which makes us the longest running Michelin Star holder in Scotland. The Braidwood’s’ careers read like a run-down of Britain’s greatest gastronomic temples, having worked and gained experience in the Peat Inn, the Royal Oak at Yattendon, Murrayshall House and Shieldhill Hotel amongst others.

Braidwoods is now celebrating 25 years in business.

Nicola is a former Scottish Young Chef of the Year, Keith earned the immensely prestigious Acorn Award in 1993. The awards and plaudits have flowed ever since including a coveted Michelin Star  and the AA “Best Restaurant in Scotland, Year 2000”.

At the heart of their philosophy however, is a devotion to the finest ingredients, mostly sourced locally, and a fantastic respect for the traditions of haute-cuisine: painstaking preparation, freshly made stocks and sauces and terrific attention to detail, as shown in their homemade pastas, breads and chocolates.

The Braidwoods cooking blends this tradition with a creative flare and many modern twists on classic themes. Locally caught seafood and the best Scottish lamb, deer and game-birds are staples of their ever-changing menu, but so are subtle use of more exotic herbs and spices.

Braidwoods is ideally located near many of Scotland top golf courses.
