Media Release: The Cochrane Inn refreshes offering with full makeover and new menus


THE popular Cochrane Inn, widely acknowledged as one of Ayrshire’s finest inns, has been given a comprehensive makeover and introduced new menus to refresh its offering to customers.

Located in the village of Gatehead, on the outskirts of Kilmarnock, the former traditional inn has been given a distinctly contemporary feel, with a modern twist reflected in its menu, which features fresh local produce supplied daily.

Cochrane Inn owner, Bill Costley, said: “Whilst its ivy-covered exterior remains intact, as does its renowned character as a traditional country inn, internally, The Cochrane Inn has benefited from a wide-ranging revamp to ensure its appeal to customers for years to come.”

The Inn’s new menu includes starters of: cullen skink; chicken liver parfait; steamed mussels with white wine; chicken and ham hough and smoked haddock fishcake.

Mains include: stuffed pepper; escalope of pork; steak and sausage pie; Cajun spiced chicken; seared sea bream, lamb curry and cannelloni. There is also a selection of salads, sandwiches and a grill option featuring sirloin and medallion of beef fillet.

The new dessert menu, meanwhile, includes a selection of sundaes and puddings, including: Knickerbocker Glory; banana split; sticky toffee pudding; carrot cake and lemon meringue pie.

An ideal place to stop for a delicious taste of informal pub food with a modern twist and drinks at affordable prices, the Cochrane Inn is easily accessible from the A77 when travelling to or from Ayrshire.

The Cochrane Inn is located at 45 Main Road, Gatehead, Ayrshire. Call 01563 570122 to make a reservation.
