We had lunch here today and it was excellent. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Very relaxing atmosphere, we were very lucky with the weather so we sat outside. We had the Oriental sharing platter, it was delicious. I would certainly recommend this establishment. Very good experience.

This is definitely our favourite place to eat when visiting family who are regulars there. Food is always excellent quality and well cooked and presented. The refurb of the restaurant is complete and it's great but sad to see the log fire has gone 😩. Can't wait to return for next visit

I always enjoy the Old Loans Inn. The place was packed as we were there during the Open. The service was almost non-existent. I went to the bar 3 times to order but nobody even looked at me Finally the bar tender took our order and another 30 minutes later we got our drinks followed by our snacks. Because of... More
