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.
Have to admit we have had hit and miss dining at the Afton Restaurant but last night was really lovely. The head waiter was exceptionally attentive and extremely friendly. The waiting staff were a delight. The food was good - all in all, a wonderful evening
Not sure why price should be 25o/o dearer on Sunday? All guests thoroughly enjoyed their lunch. We will be back.
The meal was absolutely delicious especially the starter of seared scallops 😍 and you couldn’t get any better service!! Can’t wait to come back
The restaurant was great, Starter and main was so tasty and well presented. I ordered the duck it was I’ve cooked from what I asked for medium but was still really nice. Desserts were a bit of a disappointment my cheesecake was meant to be lemon but didn’t taste of anything, the quality of the desserts compared to the rest of the food was quite poor. Service was great by our server Ross
Couldn't fault anything.
They went over & above for us as we had afternoon tea earlier in the day & noticed that another table had strawberry tarts on there’s & we didn’t but when we said to them they resolved it & had them sitting at our table for our dinner & the staff were so nice.
Staff were attentive and food was excellent and good value for money.
My wife and I visit alot, we we're married at lochside and it's our retreat, the new menu is great, my wife loved the food as did I. The staff are great and interact well, If i had any criticism it would be that there is no lounge bar, once dinner is finished i would like to relax in a snug environment
food here was delicious and staff were very friendly and made myself and my husband feel comfortable and valued.
food,great, great views, but bar had no atmosphere .
Have no faults whatsoever with any type of service. Food and staff were amazing.
Food was amazing and service was great. Definitely recommend
lovely stay just after new year. weather not great as you can imagine in January. Warm welcome from reception. allocated room 2 which was lovely and well appointed and a comfy mattress some refurbishment in our corridor which we were notified about at time of booking. found it to be fine and not hugely noisy by workmen. Dined that evening and for breakfast next morning. more than happy with food and service by the servers. Didn't use the spa as the hours allocated for residents didn't suit us . a very nice stay and will return
Comfortable, helpful and friendly
Stress free experience.
Both my wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Hotel. Could not fauly anythinf, the Fod was excellent, the room was comfortable and clean and the SPA experience was superb.
Food and atmosphere was amazing will defo be back.
Brilliant service and very helpful with all the wedding planning options. Thanks.
We had a lovely meal. Even though it was a set menu there was a good range of food that you could choose from. Atmosphere in the restaurant was relaxed and very pleasant indeed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Timing for each course was nicely managed. We will definitely be back!!
Have had some bad experiences and have said wouldn’t hurry back but believe in giving the benefit of doubt and we were so pleased that we did because last night was 1st class . Meal was lovely and hot which has previously been a bone of contention with with me .Maybe there could have been a wee bit more to main course other than chips and a wee bit salad but nevertheless it was tasty hence 3 stars for value for money. As for the service I have to say this was the best service ever Stephen was exceptional polite pleasant and very attentive without being overbearing as was your restaurant manager. They are a credit to you. Will be back soon
A brilliant night with delicious food served by friendly, helpful staff. No wonder it's our favourite place to dine!!
Great service and delicious food, will definitely be going back, staff very attentive and polite .
Staff were very attentive and friendly. They took time to speak with all the children in our party. The youngest child has allergies and staff were happy to answer our questions promptly. Food was beautiful. Thank you.
The food is lovely and the staff all very friendly and attentive but there is always room for improvement. Some of the cutlery was marked and I know it's Christmas but I expected a better napkin.
