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.
I visit every 4 or 5 weeks for lunch and have always been delighted with everything about the restaurant. Very good menu at reasonable price, staff are super and the views from the restaurant are worth making the trip for alone. Thanks to all at Lochside.
Afternoon Tea is one of the nicest we have had.
Only comment is that air conditioning a bit on the cold side. Enjoyed our meal very much
Food was lovely. But we had to wait 40 mins between courses and we asked for desert menu and no one brought it to us. We ended up leaving without it.
A beautiful experience ❤️
Thank you for a wonderful meal, breakfast and afternoon tea - couldn't fault any of them. Food was beautiful and the staff were absolutely lovely - nothing was a problem. So looking forward to coming back
Friendly staff lovely food
Whilst the meal here was lovely, the time we waited for it was ridiculous, staff were running around all over the place, asked for BBQ sauce, got brown sauce, chips Instead of rice , got rice and a side of chips which we were expected to pay for! This is a really busy hotel with weddings going on too, they could either do with more kitchen staff or take less bookings!
food was amazing as always!
Terrible meal! Main course selections running out 30 mins into service. Cold starters when they should of been hot! 40 mins wait for the starters, main course not cooked properly, duck chewy, spme vegetables mush and some raw, plate so hot the waitresses tea towel melted to it! Spoke to the manager who was nice and comp'd us a couple.of drinks but not a good expereince when it was a surprise for my partners birthday!
Had a lovely time no complaints about anything
It was average for food, no wow factor venture is gorgeous but food could be much nicer given the status of the venue
Grill night is excellent value and very tasty.
Great views and very pleasant staff.
Really disappointed service was extremely slow waited over 35 minutes for starter to be served. And blackened chicken skewers was bland with the peppers and onions barley cooked. Staff did take drinks off bill price. But on the whole far below usual standards and very disappointing.
Got engaged at the hotel and been at least 5 times and never had a bad thing to say. Staff, hotel, spa and food are 10 out of 10
Staff tonight were outstanding, very pleasant with exceptional manners. New staff members were being shown the ropes and were a pleasure to speak to. Very good menu with plenty of choice.
Lovely hotel. Had to wait longer than expected for food however it was worth the wait. Service after that was great. Would also like to say Robin (female) on reception was fantastic helping us with tv/radio issues in the room. The manager on duty day shift on Weds 7th was also fantastic with this.. Spa treatment fab! Room upgrade to Garden Suite well worth the extra £30 cost. The next day breakfast was lovely. We were greeted by an older retired looking lady who had different clothes on from the other staff. This lady was an employee and wow she knows what customer service and friendliness to guests is all about. I was recently widowed at age 45. Cancer destroyed my children and I future with a husband and father. This was exactly what I needed to clear my body and mind of trauma and pain for at leaat the time of my stay. Fantastic stay just wish I could afford it more often.
