Very rarely will you be disappointed with a meal at a Costley restaurant. We go to Souters regularly and the usual plate is fish and chips; very good. Chose the T bone steak and the fillet portion was perfect, the sirloin was a tad tough. Good staff and in a lovely area of Ayrshire

I have always believed that the greatest invention we have ever given the world is the breakfast. And, before I continue, I have reviewed this restaurant before and have had nothing but praise for it and its food and service. However, I was disappointed with the breakfast. What I received tasted lovely..... but there was just not enough of it.... More

The staff were wonderful and even went to the trouble of finding a birthday song, with my daughter's name in it! What a lovely place to visit. Thank you, we... More

Visited with my elderly parents on Wednesday 28/04/16 for lunch. Had a beautiful drive down on a nice sunny day. On arrival there was good disabled access for my Dad who walks with sticks and has problems with stairs. There is a large menu with lots of choice and the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. The staff were all immaculate... More

We haven't been to Souter Johnnie's Inn for a long time, we recently went for a late lunch one Friday afternoon and it was really lovely, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was prompt but not intrusive the servers were polite and helpful the atmosphere in the inn was very warm & welcoming. Looking forward to a return visit... More
