I like the Loans but the service is good and quality is perfect. I chose to have a lunch for my 70and we enjoyed all aspects of the gig. We will be back. George

Something went wrong on this visit, the Mellon starter we ordered as not ripe enough, and most of it was returned, but were still charged for it anyway, to be fair, after we complained the bill was reduced, also the fish and chips were not up to the usually high standard, the fish was fine but the chips left a lot to be desired. Very disappointed on this visit!

I was using the facility for a business purpose and had my customers in attendance. The service, food and overall experience was why I used the Loans inn in the first place and it did not let me down.

A few items not a available on the menu - chicken skewers and salmon which were two items my friend could have chosen as she is gluten and dairy intolerant. On saying that the dish she chose she couldn't have all items but was offered salad to replace items she couldn't have.

My daughter, who is autistic, didn't like the bun with her burger. She said it tasted funny and when my husband tried it he thought it tasted of aniseed. This isn't a complaint, but maybe you could put the change of bun onto the menu so people will know. The food was delicious otherwise!

Overall we were happy with our afternoon tea it was very tasty, however when the waitress brought our tea/coffee there was no teaspoons, my cup was dirty and I wasn’t provided milk so I had to ask to rectify this also I was only given 2 small sachets of sugar with my tea which only covered the first cup so I had to again ask for more. My husband also would have preferred a pot of coffee rather than just one cup

If there is one tiny criticism I have, it is that the restaurant area is never warm - and what with the outside door regularly being opened it’s always on the cool side! Otherwise, good food and relaxed atmosphere, the facilities and general decor are both very clean and inviting, and the staff all provide a first class customer service - friendly, professional, and confident without being over-bearing. Always a pleasant visit.

Food was nice but service not great. Ordered the sharing platter which had food missing complained to waitress, she apologised and said she would pass the message onto the chef? Nothing else done. Then with main course we had no drinks and weren’t asked if we needed anymore when our meals came. We tried to get some of the staffs attention to order but had no luck. I approached the bar to order some and was told to take a seat at my table and they would send someone over. 10 minutes later waitress took our drinks order then we waited a further 15 minutes for our drinks. I enjoy the old loans inn but the service I feel is always poor.

The staff on sunday night 26th January 2020 were absolutely fantastic. We brought my sister for her 40th birthday dinner. I brought cake & balloon prior to the dinner reservation & the staff had it all set up. It flowed well throughout our dinner experience. The staff all sung happy birthday to my sister. Highly recommend to anyone. 10/10 well done. Food was amazing too.

Haven’t been in a long time and think it will be a long time before/if I go back. No sort of wow Service moderate, over charged on bill initially. Food warm, prompt and tasty.
