About Afton Restaurant at Lochside House Hotel
Set within 20 acres of land, overlooking the Loch of the Lowes and with the nearby Creoch in sight, the hotel boasts magnificent views of the surrounding Ayrshire countryside. The individual and welcoming hotel with private grounds invites you to discover Burns country, and view the landscape that inspired his poetry.
Our last visit to Lochside was less than a happy event but they have certainly changed and this time we had a really lovely evening. The food was great and the waiter who looked after us was first class.
Myself and my wife visited the Lochside House Hotel for afternoon tea and it didn't disappoint. Great value for money at a very reasonable price.
My friend and I were delighted with the staff in all areas of the hotel - they really went the extra mile and made our stay. We'll be back.
This was my second visit to the restaurant within a few weeks. Food and service was were fantastic. Had no faults what so ever. Will defo be back
We are getting married here and wanted to show off our venue to our mums. The food was mostly good, soup, goats cheese starter and cajun ciabattas and chicken were all really good. The nachos were a bit soggy and the tomato sauce was too much, a salsa would have been better. The fish was very greasy and soggy not crispy which was a shame as my soon to be mil was unable to eat it. The service was very slow. Waiting around 30-45 mins between courses with our finished plates sitting in front of us for most of that time. We were also sat near the bar which was very noisy with drinks and staff banging about. It's a shame as we really wanted to impress our parents but I don't think the lochside did in this instance unfortunately.
Lovely meal apart from the very slow service
Beautiful place, amazing food and lovely staff.
I really like your food but your service always lets you down. The waiters and waitresses are young so I don’t want to criticise them too much but an older supervisor would be helpful. I tried for at least half an hour/45 minutes to ask for the bill but it was quiet around our part of the restaurant and no waiter came past for ages. We had to approach the bar and pay for the bill there.
Food and restaurant first class service could have been better
Had a fantastic meal and the service was great, staff very pleasant and helpful it was a very busy mothers day And dining room was packed, credit to all the staff
Staff could not have been friendlier, service was excellent on a very busy today, food was excellent and we didn't wait long at all considering how busy it was. Would recommend to anyone.
Food and service 1st class
Superb place, lovely food, great staff
Was first time at Lochside and was very pleased. Amazing staff could not do enough for you. Everything was amazing and was made to feel special Food was to die for and generous servings. will be back in the near future.
We had a very enjoyable stay & the Spa & all staff very pleasant. LYNDA
Enjoyed our stay, only one small negative for us the room was extremely warm , we tried turning down radiators but didn’t make a lot of difference.
I have been meeting a friend here every month or so for more than 2 years. The food and service are always perfect and the location is worth the trip in itself
I thought the tables were a bit too close together. Myself and my partner couldn't fully relax as we felt that the tables either side of us could hear our every word. Spacing the tables out more would result in a better dining experience. Food very good though, really enjoyed it.
Another most enjoyable visit.
Brilliant professional and friendly service
Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Lochside. Lovely surroundings and friendly staff. What more could you ask for?
Always enjoy our annual visit staff fab!
Absolutely brilliant from when we arrived intill our departure top class.
We had a wonderful time at both the hotel and the restaurant, I thought the staff were excellent and the service faultless. The food was fabulous although my steak could have had another few minutes on the heat but very tasty. Thank you!!
