About Cochrane Inn
A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at the Cochrane Inn. Located in the village of Gatehead, on the outskirts of Kilmarnock, this traditional country inn and family restaurant, has a distinctly contemporary, yet cosy ambience. Our cuisine has modern twist reflected in it’s menu and features fresh local produce supplied daily.
The perfect placefor a relaxing family meal or to stop off when traveling through Ayrshire, whether you're dining in our restaurant for a meal, or relaxing at our bar for a drink.
I really enjoy coming to the Cochrane however when we visited last night the restaurant was freezing cold. There was a terrible draft coming in from the ceiling. There was another table next to us that were sitting with their scarves on also. Not sure if there was a problem with the heating. I feel the adult menu is great value for money. I do think the children's menu is expensive. £3 for 2 slices of garlic bread was a bit steep. There was no set menu for kids unlike you're competitors who offer much better value for money. The kids burger was very thick, salty and over cooked. My adult meal was delicious and could not be faulted. Service was great and all staff are very friendly. I will return however wouldn't bring the children back as it becomes quite pricey.
First time at the Cochrane Inn. Loved everything about it. Fab staff and service and lovely food and atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
Just perfect, staff were excellent so attentive throughout the evening and nothing was a bother to them, a special birthday meal that lived up to its high standards. We will definetly be back again. Thank you.
I feel the quality of the food has slipped, pretty average. Bit disappointing for a Costly establishment.
Service was fine but staff not the friendliest, food was nothing better than adequate and not worth the prices The premise itself is perfectly suitable
The food was fabulous. Beautiful ambience. Cannot fault the Cochrane Inn.
We were a group of 5, with 3 of us being elderly. The early menu is ideal as we had another engagement later in the evening. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food, ambience and service. Will definitely return.
Friendly service, lovely food
Excellent well cooked food served at the right temperature. Great value on Early Bird menu. Timely service. Easy booking on line. Enjoyed every course. First time for a while but won't wait as long till next visit.
I gave 5 stars for everything because the 2 girls gave us a warm welcome as soon as we came through the main door,showed us to our table,took our drinks order immediately and proceeded to give great service all the way through 3 courses.We booked for 5.45 and were back out for 6.45 as the staff were exceptionally quick bringing our food for each course.Hadn't been to Cochrane for quite a while but certainly won't be leaving it too long until our next visit...great service,great food and great value for money.
Good food served with very little fuss in a cosy, if somewhat noisy, environment.
first time I booked a table online, site was very easy to use, will definitely use this service again. Meal was excellent, service first class.
Brilliant on all fronts as usual. First class in every department!
It’s been a year since we’ve been Just as good as it always was Great food ,friendly staff ,comfortable warm atmosphere.will be back
As it was a festive menu near Christmas Day, I would have expected to have been offered a mince pie with our coffee or even a Christmas cracker on the table. My husband enjoyed his meal, however, as a vegetarian I thought the vegetarian option was poor, no choices at all for vegetarians.
Smashing meal with a very homely feel
Very busy evening but the service was excellent
Excellent ... Couldn't fault it!
Great service, good food and great value cant speak highly enough about the staff and the welcome
Very good experience but as we were in the bar the tables are very close together and there was a cold draft when the door was opened although it was warm enough the rest of the time. Next time would ask to be in the dining room.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal with 2 friends who had never previously been to the Cochrane Inn. They were well pleased with the experience and the food and service was just first class. Thank you.
Always have a lovely time ,the foods lovely and the staff are so nice and helpful and friendly .
Nice Venue. Quick Service.
Lovely staff and great food. We will be back. Thank you x
