Had a lovely overnight stay here. We loved the bar area very cosy and the food was excellent and fantastic value for money. Staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The owner is also a lovely chap too and extremely hands on. The only reason we didn't give it 5 is because the bed was very soft and... More

Always a pleasure to return to the Stair Inn and enjoy its distinctive and enjoyable atmosphere. This visit we were able to enjoy the evening sunshine outside over drinks and a meal. Comfortable, clean accommodation, good cask beer, and a peaceful location makes this one of the best if not the best pub in Ayrshire. Great breakfast rolls.

We were attending a wedding at Enterkine House and booked a room at the Stair Inn given the reviews and also the lovely photos they had. Our room did not reflect the photos that were on the Booking.com website. The room was over two floors as it was a family room but the room was basic. The bed clothes were... More

Was looking for a countryside pub to stop while out for a drive, The Stair Inn was perfect. Approx 7 miles from Ayr (20 minutes drive) and a good stop for anyone walking the River Ayr Way. Nice décor and really cosy atmosphere inside as the log burning stove was on. Plenty choice from the pub style menu. King prawn... More

Four of us enjoyed a really good meal, I was really surprised to see chicken curry pie on the menu so I decided to try it. Very good dish although I did find the vegetables slightly too al de te for me.

Firstly I must say that the only good point about this visit was the friendly and competent waitress/barmaid. I have eaten here several times in the past and the food was good. Not this time! Portion sizes have been reduced to the ridiculous stage. After a long wait, two starters were fine but the third, supposedly a Stair Inn Smokehouse... More

Once again this inn did not disappoint when I visited. The wood burning fire was very welcoming on a cold March day. The food and service were every bit as good as my last visit. I was delighted to note that the menus had changed with an even better selection of food.
