An iconic Ayrshire restaurant that has been closed for several years will reopen its doors later this week.

The Cochrane Inn, in Gatehead, closed and was put up for sale back in 2019. It was operated by Costley and Costley for more than 12 years.

At the time, the restaurant boasted the potential for 70 covers. It was well-known across the region for its fresh, local dishes. 

A new social media page for the Cochrane Inn has been created, and has now announced it will reopen on Wednesday, February 21. 

The restaurant's new website boasts a fresh menu, as the iconic venue looks set to return to the Ayrshire dining scene.

Bookings can now be made at
