Had heard good things about the Sorn Inn and decided to take my wife there for her birthday. We were not disappointed. Sorn is not a big place and not the easiest place to find, but it is well worth the effort. We both chose the same dishes: starter - cauliflower croquettes, parmesan fondant, courgette and caper chutney; main- pave... More

Haven't been for a while and wasn't disappointed ( booked table to be on safe side ) .. Beautifully decorated for Christmas & the staff couldn't be more helpful / charming. We both chose the set 3 course Christmas menu & we loved every mouthful. Tasty / fresh & presented like 5* restaurant. We will definitely make more of an... More

I've been here a couple of times and always had a great experience. The food is brilliant, the staff are great and the rooms are good. We've eaten in the restaurant and in the pub part and they are both good depending on what you are there for. If you need a mobile phone signal the lassie behind the bar... More

This glorious place was recommended to me by a friend whose wedding we were going to. We were greeted by Craig, a lovely chap.The room was good, lovely and clean. Although facing a side road, Sorn is so quiet, you don't hear a thing! The food, oh the food! We had dinner on the Friday and boy, what a dinner!... More

Myself and my wife stayed in the Sorn Inn on 30 and 31 July when we were in Scotland for the women's British Open. We ate in the restaurant on both nights and had breakfast on one morning. The food was excellent. The chef and all the staff were excellent and did everything to make sure the stay was enjoyable.... More

Visited yesterday for a late lunch and really glad we did. We did think that we had booked a table in the main restaurant but after a drink in the lovely cosy bar we were shown to a table in the chop house part of the inn. First time in this part and very nice it was to. Full al... More

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
