Lentil soup had a consistency of rice pudding as opposed to soup. Staff were very attentive.

We were greeted and seated by the man who welcomed us, given menus and he did not come back to us, had to get attention of another server, after 25 minutes waiting our drink and food order was taken, at which time we were advised no Sunday Roasts were available as they were finished, our table was booked for 16.30 (although our order was not taken til 16.55 I thought they would still be serving the Sunday roast at tea time that was the main reason for booking, ordered different food from menu, food was delicious couldn’t fault it just a pity the service wasn’t as good

Excellent food and service. Only lost a star because it was quiet due to the current circumstances.

With the excitement of returning to restaurant dining but the concern of Covid hanging over us, we were shocked to find a foreign object in the first bite into a steak fajita. It looked like a hearing aid bud. We were given a fresh plate and as "an apology" a free orange juice. Not the standard expected or the appropriate 'apology' I'm sure you will agree! The restaurant was fairly quiet so we were disappointed when a single customer was placed in the booth opposite us. He had no choice to hear our entire conversation. I know he was about 2 metres away... but only just! It led to a rather uncomfortable evening, both socially and from a health perspective. Poor show Old Loans. We won't be back.

Found the main courses to be a little expensive for what we got. My risotto was dearer than some in Troon and less authentic.

Very disappointed with the food and the rise in cost of it. Definitely not worth £14-£15 per main course.

The service is variable, there was a very pleasant young girl who was very bubbly however other staff members could be quite brusque at times, however think this is just stress & it’s definitely not intentional. It’s very difficult during these times to stay safe & this was the only place we have been where it was not disposable menus. Table also felt sticky... However I appreciate this may be the residue from spray. Enjoyable meal though & it’s becoming my local go to. It’s always a place that I forget about but always enjoy.
