We have eaten in many different Loch Fyne's and generally there are good quality, but this one let them down badly.

Several items were not available due to a busy Saturday night, include the popular fish and chips. So a bit disappointing to start. Never mind, the fish as you like it is normally fine.

The starter of ravioli was served cold (not supposed to be) and the standard chips and french fries followed suit. 2 meals of 3 sent back and what I can only assume reheated in a microwave as the FF were soggy afterwards.

Waitress apologized but that was it, no offers to make our evening right, so complained to the manager. He did eventually knock off the cost of a meal and gave discount on the rest, but when asked 'Why should we come back again' offered no reason, not even to say this had never happened before.

I understand that sometimes things can go wrong, but presenting cold food is not one of them, and then when if does go wrong so much loyalty can be gained by what the staff and management do about it, in this case very little.

Will still eat at Loch Fyne, but not this one.

Have been to this restaurant on two occasions. Both were good experiences with good food and service. The menu is as you would expect heavily fish based but there are some variations such as sirloin steak. We did find that some wines were not available and some choices were not available which was a bit disappointing. It is a bit pricey though they do have some good deals during the week. All in all a pleasant restaurant if you are keen on fish!

For the best seafood, and other kinds of food, so fresh, light touches on the menu to keep the flavours zingy and you can choose how you want things cooked. A delight.

We have lunched with friends here on a number of occasions recently and on each visit have enjoyed the food. The service is attentive and knowledgeable the food good and of course the menu majors on fish dishes. One on visit I had a Thai green curry which although excellent for flavour and quality was rather lacking in quantity. Other visits I stuck to fish dishes which did not disappoint. The Fish in Tempura batter is light and excellent.
As the restaurant has many hard services noise can be an issue , so we normally request a table in the conservatory

Went to this restaurant on Friday last week with friends. The service was really excellent. The waiter very attentive and friendly. The food was supberb. I had mussels to start, two others had the lobster ravioli and my daughter had prawns. All beautifully served and delicious. I had the gilt head bream which was really very good.
Rarely can you rate a restaurant and find that nothing failed but well done Loch Fyne you get 5 starts from me - keep it up!
