We went for lunch to celebrate a birthday. We couldn't have asked for a better meal. We ordered a variety of dishes, all of which surpassed any expectations. We all agreed it was the best meal any of us had eaten in a long time. Contrary to the experience of one reviewer we'd heartily disagree on the opinion about both... More

Myself and my best friend decided to drive to the countryside for lunch. We chose the Sorn Inn as was recommended. The place is a lovely, quaint Scottish Inn surrounded by the beautiful countryside. Good was fantastic and service was efficient and very friendly.

Went back to Sorn Inn for lunch on Friday and sadly very quiet for a place with outstanding food. It's in the top 5 in the Saturday Herald reviews on a regular basis and its throughly deserved. I have the deep fried black pudding starter which was amazing crisp and moist and slightly spicy. The 3 course lunch was. Incredible... More

Went here for our 47th wedding anniversary meal whilst on holiday nearby. Chose the Rib Eye special deal meal. Fantastic flavours & great service. One of the best meals we have had out in a long while. Pity it is so far from our home, as we would certainly be back again & again. Thanks for a great night !

Had planned to pop in here for some time on the back of the review from Ron McKenna in The Hearld. It did not disappoint. Great food, great service . The steak deal on a Thursday is superb. Will definitely be back

Had a wonderful stay. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel important. Room was clean and spacious. Good staff can make such a difference to a hotel and these staff were very good. So friendly and attentive. Great customer service. Food was exceptional. Can't wait to go back.
