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

We are regular visitors to the Sorn, personally I just can't see past it. The village is beautiful but slightly out the way, the drives only wets your appetite though. I would recommend the steak to anyone, Craig the chef cooks it too perfection every time and front of house staff are happy to chat about how they try and... More

Visited the Sorn Inn after it was recommended by family. It is a small cosy space, very clean and attractive. Had a lovely burger. Slightly more expensive than similar places but food was fresh skilfully prepared. Would recommend. Friendly feel added to experience.
