Regular eaterie for us and we usually have early bird menu which is excellent value. Being a little later last night we chose from the wider menu and the food was excellent. Busy dining room but staff were attentive and efficient.

As this restaurant is within walking distance of our house this is ideal for a meal out for us as we can also enjoy a nice bottle of wine with no worries about driving home. Although there are other restaurants in Troon that I prefer to eat in The Old Loans Inn is still well worth a visit with good... More

Visiting with friends, we were impressed with the appearance and layout. In other words, it's much the same as the other Simpsinns places. Staff were good. The food was satisfactory. No better than average though, and the prices seemed fair.

Excellent food, good atmosphere, if a little noisy, and reasonable prices. Ok for families and couple. Bit of a squeeze with some of the booth-type seating.

I went here for my brothers birthday and we had a terrific time! The staff were lovely and very helpful with good manners. The meals were out of this world and I was blown away by the taste of the sticky toffee pudding! I ended up having nachos with a light, cream soured cream sauce and a mild, smooth salsa!... More

Visited back in November as a last minute stop off. It was a Sunday and we ordered off the lighter menu which is a set menu and very reasonably priced. Despite being a lighter menu portions were excellent. We've also visited for easter lunch with kids and the kids ate free. Definitely recommend

Visited for light lunch.mexcellent service and food, reasonably priced. Pity some of the original character has been lost by being modernised. Would visit again.
