About The Kirkton Inn

Rustic dining in rural Ayrshire

With roots stretching back to the 1800s, The Kirkton Inn offers hearty cuisine with a touch of atmosphere. This hotel, restaurant, bar and beer garden is based in the heart of Burns country in the picturesque village of Dalrymple. The inn has recently been restored, combining the original features with contemporary Scottish decor. The cosy bar area has a warming log burner that’s perfect for a post-dinner dram, or why not sample one of the wide range of Scottish gins?

British and international classics

The Kirkton Inn serves up a crowd-pleasing selection of traditional Scottish fare and filling pub dishes. So expect starters such as golden potato skins or crispy mozzarella dippers, alongside more playful choices like the ‘blaggis’ bon bons (haggis & black pudding balls).

Typical mains include all-time classics like traditional steak pie, creamy macaroni cheese and hand-battered crispy haddock with chips & mushy peas. Or you could go international and try the Chinese vegetable curry with rice or chips.

For dessert, expect proper puddings along the lines of old-school caramel cake, sticky toffee pudding and chocolate fudge cake.
