I've visited here a few times recently and the food has always been good. I visited again a few days ago on a week night and there was a lovely, cosy atmosphere and great service. Will be back again soon!

I visited the Old Loans Inn recently and was taken aback by the changes to the restaurant. Soon as you walked in there was a great atmosphere helped by the roaring fire.

My sister can be a picky eater but she found a dish from each of the courses that she wanted and was very impressed. The rest of us thoroughly enjoyed all the courses (all 5 of them), the food...

We were there for the Hogmanay celebrations and had plenty of room, great food and tip-tip service. The choice of entertainment left a lot to be desired but a good evening was had. Not my first...
