Enjoyed our visit but menu was very limited for my wifes food allergies (soya/wheat) resulting in her having to have a steak. Staff were friendly and helpful liasing with the kitchen staff concerning suitability of dishes but doubt we would return due to lack of suitable choices.

Very friendly staff made us feel very welcome. We love the atmosphere and the fact it relatively quiet. Good access for wheelchair and plenty room to manoeuvre the chair. 5 star all the way

Found it unbearably hot where we were seated - near kitchen. Service was extremely slow - almost three hours for our meal which was difficult with three young children!

The staff were lovely and the service was excellent, but the food was very mediocre. Perhaps because it was Christmas Day and so busy, the food was more like canteen quality

We had a lovely family meal at the Old Loans Inn. Lovely restaurant and the staff were friendly and helpful. My little girl got to make her own pizza up which she loved doing. Meal portions were very generous considering a lot of our order was from the Light Bites menu. Will definitely be returning

In general we thoroughly enjoy eating at the Old Loans, the atmosphere is great, the staff are excellent and the food is excellent too. Only time we've felt let down was last week, when we were there with friends. We all had the croquettes as a starter and all of us thought that the portion of two tiny balls on the plate was pretty mean and really poor value compared to your usual standards. Also, I only drink decaff tea and you never seem to have any.

Had yet another lovely Sunday lunch with hubby, son, daughter-in-law & 2 grand daughters. Can't recommend The Old Loans Inn enough and the fact that the children eat for free is an added bonus.
