After a longish flight it was an enjoyable experience to feel hungry and then find the food was good. Everyone had something different from mainly the 'early diner' menu, which was a bonus. Very reasonable. It is something worth doing again if flying into Prestwick, before completing the journey home.

We recently visited the Old Loans Inn when staying in a nearby hotel. We called in for a evening meal & a few drinks. Not a lot to report really. Nice surroundings & a friendly welcome but once seated, the waiting on staff really needed some encouragement to take our order & fetch our bill. We gave up waiting for... More

Very crowded took ages between courses. Think the kitchen could not cope with the demand. Portion sizes very small. Started our meal at 6pm and did not finish until 8.45pm.

Decided to drop in for some dinner as we'd never been before! It was quite busy so staff appeared more attentive of the larger tables however friendly and helpful when approached. The food was nice, however pricey. Just by this experience I would go back but I'm not in a hurry!

Just needed a bite to eat after disembarking from the Larne-Troon ferry. Our local B&B host recommended Old Loans Inn and we were glad he did. They found us a table immediately we arrived and within 60secs we had a drinks order taken by the barman Craig who proved to be very proficient & professional in his job. Likewise with... More
