Two Fat Ladies at Troon – now open



We were invited to the media review of Two Fat Ladies at the Marine Hotel in Troon.  As well as checking out the restaurant, we had a peek at the lovely rooms at The Marine Hotel.

After our tour we had the chance to speak with Ryan James, Proprietor of Two Fat Ladies as well as read up on the collaboration.


Commenting on the launch, Fredrik Korallus, CEO of Puma Hotels’ Collection, said:

“At Puma we are passionate about offering guests good quality food and are proud to welcome a renowned culinary institution to The Marine. It was important that the restaurant shared our values, and renowned for its dining experience and culinary expertise, The Two Fat Ladies is a perfect partner.

Proprietor of Two Fat Ladies, Ryan James added:

“Troon is well-known for excellent seafood. Coupled with its striking scenery, it is the perfect location for the next chapter of the Two Fat Ladies brand. Inspired by Scotland’s larder, the new menu celebrates the wonderful seafood from our coastline. It has been a great weekend welcoming new and familiar faces and we look forward to getting to know the people of Troon.

My photos of the restaurant and the view didn’t do both justice so I have borrowed these.
