The food was of excellent quality, and service also very good, the only problem I had was trying to eat a prawn cocktail from those stupid high dishes, have management tried eating from them, because if they had I'm sure they would not have bought them, please! Lets go back to old fashioned sensible plates and dishes John C

Restaurant was warm on a cold day. Clean, modern interior. Good varied menu and choice of lighter meals,and mains. We all had 2 course lunch. I particularly enjoyed the Lentil and Bacon soup I’ve booked again for next month.

Had to ask for water at the table 3 times took over 30 mins to get it, restaurant wasn’t overly busy. Food was good on my part, my husband ordered the beef olives which he said were okay but he has had better in the house. The beef ham around was tasty, but the centre was chewy and coarse.

Hi Number of things wrong: Drinks order was 2 fresh oranges and lemonade. 2 fresh oranges arrived. Pint of tops ordered and a pint of tennants arrived. Child Sunday roast ordered wrong and then tried to be charged for it. Light battered vegetables was not put through and was left waiting for my starter. Hoi soin sauce WAS NOT more like watery Worcester sauce. Service was slow and place was too warm. Sweets were ordered with coffee. The coffee was finished before the sweets arrived. The bill was wrong. Unfortunately haven’t been in a while and probably won’t be back in a while. Kind regards Table booked for 9 people at 6pm on Sunday.

Always a warm and welcoming environment. Maybe the music was a little loud for lunchtime? Food was very good, but I feel some of it can be a little over-priced (£12.95 for a vegetable enchilada). Service was friendly and professional. On the whole, a good dining experience!

We had a friendly welcome. All courses were very tasty however there was a lacking of beef in the beef and sausage pie which composed of mainly sausage. The waitress forgot to bring the sweet menu and I had to remind her after approx 10 minutes. These were the only negative points and I would like to say my mum and I enjoyed our meal very much.

I was left very disappointed with our visit to your restaurant on Monday 11th December. Food and service was of very poor quality. The restaurant was quiet yet we were not given cutlery for our main courses, one of the mains was sent to the wrong table and one of our guests had to wait 10 minutes yet the rest of the mains were delivered to the table, 25 minutes after receiving our bill I had to go to the bar to pay it despite staff walking past on numerous occasions. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend to anyone based on the experience I had. The poor quality of food reminded me of a cheap Wetherspoon’s and was not what I was expecting at all.

We decided to try Old Loans again for the whole family and I think we were not overlay impressed. Although the service was initially quick and excellent it took an hour after we had finished our starters before our main course came. We got no apology for the wait and we even seen other tables being served that had come in after us. I know we were a table of 8 and it is important to serve everybody at once but the restaurant was not overly busy so goodness knows how long the wait would have been if it had been really busy. Another issue was with my main course which I believe was not from the correct menu. I ordered Fish and Chips and what came was some salad, one piece of fish and about 8 large chips. It was tasty but I ordered this off the main menu and would have expected a lot more for £13.60. I even mentioned it to our server as the two ladies sitting next to us on my right were also given Fish and Chips but they had 2 large pieces of fish. I did not get a good answer back from the server. I believe I was given the smaller portion which you get when you buy off the special menu but I did not get the cheaper price. I always support Loans Inn and have been a regular since it opened but never again for a family event.
