This place is virtually on our doorstep yet my husband and I had never been. Will definitely return now that we know how good the food is. Would highly recommend. The chophouse is quite small but cosy and the place had a nice relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed at the Inn whilst walking the River Ayr Way, what a treat was in store for us after a 19 mile slog from Glenbuck. The rooms are large , comfortable and quiet and great value. The pub was very friendly full of locals and welcoming us even though we were English! The real delight was food that would...

Great service in this lovely dog friendly inn. Daisy, our dog, was well looked after while we had a brilliant bar lunch. A hamburger and a pulled pork sandwich were our choice and both were excellent. Lovely cosy atmosphere and Ill be back again soon.

Nice gastropub handy for exploring Ayrshire. Food at both dinner and breakfast was excellent for the two nights we stayed. The rooms were large, comfortable and very clean and there was excellent free wifi available. The 'chophouse' was cosier and more comfortable than the larger restaurant, which was fairly empty mid-week, but the menu is the same in both, providing...

We stopped here for just one night on our way further north. The quality of the food was excellent, both at dinner and at breakfast ( I have never eaten such delicious porridge)! The room was very clean and comfortable and we appreciated the warm welcome from the owners and staff. We were travelling with our dog and appreciated that...

We travelled to Sorn in order to eat at the Inn, because it had been recommended to us, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was quiet on the Thursday evening we visited, with about ten diners, but the atmosphere was comfortable and the waiting staff very friendly and happy to chat as much - or as little - as...
