Second visit didn't let us down. Food was great as was service, restaurant very comfortable with a good atmosphere. We were nearby an open door and asked if we could have it closed, looked after right away. All in all a lovely relaxing lunch with some friends from Glasgow who are already planning to return to Old Loans.

Upon being sorted we were informed that the fish and chips had only 3 portions left, the parents bagged a couple of portions at that point. (They assure me that it... More
