About The Sorn Inn
Charming gastropub in East Ayrshire
The Sorn Inn is an intimate family-run gastropub beside the River Ayr in the peaceful village of Sorn. Inside, you will find quality local cuisine with a European twist all served in an elegantly rustic setting.
Soon is just under an hour’s drive from Glasgow and is known for its beautiful church, hump-backed river bridge and 14th century castle.
Ayrshire on a plate
The Sorn Inn serves up a fusion of fine dining and brasserie-style food using the best seasonal and local ingredients available. Steaks, seafood and chef’s specialities are all featured, often crowned in tempting bistro-style sauces. The menu is accompanied by wine and cocktail lists.
Steaks are a feature at the inn and are sourced from Aberdeen Angus beef. All are dry-cured for at least 28 days before being coated in special Sorn Inn seasoning (the recipe is a closely guarded secret). Cuts include Chateaubriand, sirloin, fillet, tomahawk, t-bone, rib eye and New York sharer.
Other menu highlights include Ayrshire lobster with garlic & hazelnut butter; pan-fried Scottish salmon with Champagne & lemon butter sauce, and roast sirloin of Ayrshire venison with beetroot & wine sauce.
Vegetarians can tuck into dishes like the Sorn Inn Ploughman’s featuring a range of local cheeses. A children’s menu is also available.
