Went for food to the West Loch hotel this afternoon with a party of 5 and our wee dog. As soon as we were in the hotel we were treated as if we were staying. The staff were so helpful to ourselves and our wee dog. The food on offer was varied enough (for the meat eaters anyway), but there was only one main vegetarian dish on offer which was the tried and tested macaroni cheese with chips. We ordered the food an waited for it to arrive. During the wait, one of the members of staff brought out a 'doggy chew stick' on a plate for our wee dug, but because our wee dug is gluten intolerant she couldn't eat it. We thought this gesture was priceless and such a lovely touch. The food did take a while to arrive but it did not bother us as wee were sitting enjoying the chat. When the food arrived it looked totally amazing and so well presented. The macaroni cheese, chips with micro salad was the nicest I've ever tasted and the tomatoes were so so tasty (none of your crappy mega market rubbish here). Everyone in our group said the food was fantastic.
The manager (we think it was) gave a great run down of all the drinks and beers they had and was so helpful and knowledgeable.
This is a brilliant, brilliant place. The food was amazing and the price was not to bad at all. The staff were fantastic, so helpful and had a good laugh with them. Great place, great food, great staff, great inside. Thanks very much for your immaculate hospitality and I reckon we will be along later tonight for the dessert. :-)
