Passing through the village enroute to Ayr, decided to stop for lunch. Great value, the burger is a meal in itself, the sandwich is huge. The staff service, cleanliness excellent. Very busy with local son a Saturday afternoon Menu is basic but well thought out Situated next to the Burns Museum

First time we've been in the Fairburn since the big refurbishment & as usual we weren't disappointed. Beautifully redecorated, this local restaurant serves freshly cooked, delicious food in a relaxed & friendly atmosphere. The staff are immaculately dressed & so helpful & friendly, we've never had a bad meal in the Fairburn & visit as often as we can.

Nice restaurant with friendly service and good food. Some deals to be had before 6pm and cheap drinks towards the weekend. Nice outdoor area so you can eat al fresco if that floats your boat. The sticky toffee pudding is one of the best I have ever had.

Booked online while travelling and didn't go wrong at all. Nothing over the top but still clean and comfortable. Mauchline has a curling stone factory -- ask for directions to it; worth the quick visit.
