  Souters Inn

This is a family favourite as its not far from where my parents live. Its owned by a local company, Costleys, who have several other restaurants, hotels and pubs in the area as well as there own ice cream and chocolate shop. We visited the week it opened several years ago and were very impressed so have been back on numerous occasions since.
The building had been restored when it first opened and then again following a large fire and looks amazing both inside and out with its dark beams, Burns paintings and new thatched roof. The name comes from an old village resident who was drinking buddies with local poet Rabbie Burns, his cottage now being a National Trust property a few doors up from the restaurant.
The food is always absolutely delicious and there are several Scottish dishes and locally sourced ingredients on the menu including of course Haggis neeps and tatties!
The location is very handy if you are staying in the Turnberry/Culzean/Maybole area or spending a day exploring the south of Ayrshire. The restaurant sits on the main road south to Girvan, the A77, in the middle of Kirkoswald village so is easy to find and there is ample parking at the rear.

Favorite Dish: I've tried various main dishes and never been disappointed in my choice. The menu changes every so often. I think on my most recent visit I had the Salmon en croute. My favourite thing though is the Sensational Mint Sundae!! SOO good. Costleys make their own ice cream and its delicious!
