Not much to choose from in the area and food Okish. Main courses are small and quality of meats good. Expensive for what you get, but low number of covers they need to make up their costs. Costs would be expected in a city but not in a small countryside village.

Stayed overnight, and ate here. Restaurant is popular (booking recommended in summer) but the food is of a very high standard, with good attentive service from staff. The room was clean and spacious though not the most luxurious. I will stay here again when next in the area.

Stayed at this delightful Inn in Sorn for three nights. Our room, the Sinclair Suite, was spacious, very comfortable and the en-suite bathroom spotlessly clean and had a wonderful shower with plenty of hot water. The food was superb. Beautifully presented and delicious whether dinner or breakfast. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We have absolutely no hesitation... More

After reading all the great reviews about the Sorn Inn we are going to sound like (Everybody's wrong but Tam's Bairn) but we weren't impressed with it at all. Granted, it is an old inn but it could do with a bit of an up-grade here and there and perhaps a lick of paint. When you go in at first... More

We celebrated our daughter's graduation here and had a wonderful evening. Craig's food remains among the best in Ayrshire. It's worth the trip, for delicious food - and the amazing desserts - chocolate mousse, honeycomb and raspberries, and apple tart with raisin and caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. It was the sort of place you are glad you got... More

The accommodation rates as very good - Piper suite has loads of room: sofa and 40" TV, with huge bed, only minus point the bathroom with electric shower. Restaurant is excellent quality, food lives up to gourmet billing at fair prices. Stimulated by an earlier comment on this site, on one night we tried the steak! OK, there were only... More

From start to finish, Sorn Inn is an amazing experience. Menu is varied with specials and steak night is great value. Food is always outstanding and beautifully presented. Add this to your list! *****

We've been regulars at Sorn ever since the Grant family took over. It just goes from strength to strength. Craig (Chef Patron) is a genius. His mushroom ravioli starter is just terrific. I had the lamb rump. My wife had the smoked pork loin. Superb and both had well balanced accompaniments. Then the puds. I think these are made by... More
