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.
Food was good although both salmon salads were overloaded with sliced red onion
A lovely meal in beautiful surroundings.
Lovely meal as always at Cochrane Inn
Lovely food and very attentive service would highly recommend.
Overall Excellent Service, Food and Very Friendly Staff.
Delicious lunch. Would particularly recommend the steak pie and fish and chips.
We all ordered the Apple and Raisin crumble for dessert from the early bird menu. We were all very disappointed as the Apple was very mushy, more like Apple puree. The crumble was very powdery and did not seem to have been cooked. Very disappointing end to what up till then had been a very enjoyable meal.
Excellent meal at the Cochrane!
Really nice place to catch up with friends enjoying lovely food.
Excellent food and service
Excellent value for money breakfast.
First class food and unbelievable service staff so friendly good with children definitely one of the best restaurants ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I feel the tables are too close together which definitely impacts on your enjoyment as you dont want everyone hearing your conversation.
We have been a few times and on most occasions the food has been very good but the service poor.
Excellent food, very attentive staff, great atmosphere.
Great Gluten free menu 😋
Fantastic food and service
Found the restaurant immaculately clean, staff were friendly and very polite although they did seem understaffed the general feel was nice and homely although quite noisy and the chairs could of been more comfortable .
Always a warm welcome and excellent service. Food excellent.
Lovely meal in very pleasant surroundings. Nice atmosphere and enjoyed it all. Thanks.
We are always treated like royalty when we go to the Cochrane. The staff are so helpful and always so lovely to our daughter. We visited with her on her birthday and they sang happy birthday when they brought out her pudding and even gave her a gift. So kind and generous.
Food was lovely but I’d make the portions smaller especially the starters. Service was very good
We were there for a birthday celebration and the staff sang happy birthday as they brought out the cake. Looked after us very well. Food excellent. Will be back.
