    Got to be up there as one of the best around, certainly the best we’ve found in East Ayrshire. Very friendly & efficient service & fabulous food, cooked to perfection, we loved our visit.

    We had been recommended here by a work colleague and by jove, we weren't disappointed when we popped in for lunch on Remenbrance Sunday. Very friendly, attentive service, delicious food - my steak was done to perfection. The menu choices were great - although we did find the venison a little deer!!! lol Excellent place to eat. A bit out the road - but a definite return visit is on the cards. Would highly recommend The Sorn Inn.

    Starter and desert were very nice but the star of the show was the main course- I had a rib-eye steak which was cooked to perfection. It was so tender and tasty, by far the best steak I’ve had and I’ve been to a few of the major steakhouses. The service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Will definitely be back.

    Great meal. New owners are clearly passionate about their customers and their experience. Staff always attentive and keen to ensure you are looked after. The food is excellent as always - the seafood starters were well cooked and full of flavour. The headline was the steak which was outstanding. Cooked to perfection. Delicious. Will be back as soon as we can manage.

    Food was very nice but a long wait for the starter. Waitress didn’t know what beers were available and then brought a different one from that ordered. Expected to have mint sauce available with a lamb roast but was informed that there was none, which was disappointing. While we enjoyed our lunch small improvements would help.

    Good was ok, didn’t live up to the standards of other reviews. Quite limited menu compared to online version, but good enough variety. Seafood very tasty and fresh. Tempura really just gougons in batter, definitely not tempura, quite hard going. Overall I would say overpriced for the experience. Place was absolutely freezing and I could see other diners trying to warm their hands.

    Great food, great service and not afraid to 86 a menu item if they cannot provide it fresh, so no inferior quality frozen or pre made substitutes.
