SimpsInns, is gearing up to open the doors to its new restaurant and bar in Irvine, Ayrshire, on Friday 18th August. 

The Terrace at Si! on Kilwinning Road will offer an à la carte menu from 5pm to 9pm, Friday to Sunday, following a £250,000 refurbishment.

SimpsInns is a family-owned business run by the Irvine-based Simpson family, which already owns and operates a collection of award-winning hotels, restaurants, bars, spa, golf, and leisure activities along the Ayrshire coast. 

The Terrace is located on the upper floor of Si! above The Potting Shed and will seat up to 110 people inside and 40 covers on the outdoor balcony, the ‘garden terrace’. 

The makeover was led by Glasgow interior design company, 3 Design Scotland. Foliage and trees take centre stage, seamlessly bringing the essence of the outdoors indoors. When the sun is shining, people will get the chance to enjoy al fresco dining, a delicious cocktail or chilled glass of wine on the ‘garden terrace’.

SimpsInns is the driving force behind The Terrace and The Potting Shed at Si!, as well as the group’s flagship venue, The Gailes Hotel & Spa, which is located just five minutes’ drive away on Marine Drive in Irvine.  

Jack Simpson, who has managed The Terrace development, said:

“Following the success of The Potting Shed earlier this year, we can’t wait to open the doors to our additional upper floor restaurant The Terrace from Friday 18th August and help build our reputation as Ayrshire’s trendiest new social venue.  

“This will be a social space for any time of the year, including a place to kick back in long summer evenings and a cosy atmosphere to socialise during the winter months.”
