Great service in these difficult times. Well done. Still my favourite.
Hi Donald. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we really appreciate it. We are pleased you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to welcoming you back at The Old Loans Inn soon.
Lentil soup had a consistency of rice pudding as opposed to soup. Staff were very attentive.
Staff friendly and well trained in infection control procedures. Nice atmosphere inside and outside. Toilets immaculate.
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
Only problem i had was the table as the outside door was open sll the time and the cold breeze came right up to the end of the restaurant
Service was excellent, food was ok but bit pricey considering it was mainly pub grub.
Felt servive between courses was very slow
First week open after lockdown, service was a bit slow, but staff were friendly and food was great which made up for it!
Excellent food and service. Only lost a star because it was quiet due to the current circumstances.
Great food and great service. It was so nice to be back!
First meal out for our family in over a year.. Waitress was on us every 3 minutes asking if we had finished yet. Felt rushed to eat and leave.
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.
Excellant meal in what is a very difficult time for the hospitality business , highly recommend
Our visit was a last minute decision. Really relaxing lunch with a friend and my dog.
Dirty cups food not hot and definitely not value for money would not recommend this place I will never be back it’s a shame as it use to be a great place to eat
Amazing service the girl who was serving us was great think her name was Laura Will definitely 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.
Enjoyed our visit and felt safe with all the procedures being in place
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.
good food ,good service , very good experience
Excellent from start to finish.
Always have a delicious meal here served by friendly staff. Good measures in place to maintain safety. Enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Our favourite place for dinner.
Nice visit to Loans on a Saturday afternoon. Lovely staff. We will be back.
Superb as always . Thanks !!
