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.

Starters of tomato soup & pattie were very good. The main course of roast lamb was very average, the Yorkshire pudding was over cooked, very dry. The fish pie I left most of as it was mostly potato, very disappointing. I did point out to waitress who spoke to the chef. We were offered free sweets which we chose lemon merangue pie, which was delicious. But all in all very disappointing.

Staff were very helpful and attentive. We had brought along a birthday cake which was cut up for us and served when we had our tea and coffee. The food we ordered was delicious and well presented. Thank you to George for making the day special for my 85 year old mother.

We enjoyed an Itison promotion so the value for money was excellent. Neither my wife or myself can drink alcohol now and we were disappointed that we had to pay extra for Appletize in place of Prosecco.

This was my first, and last visit. I found the maitre d' quite unpleasant. This put me off for a start. He appeared more unpleasant, whisking the menus away when I informed him I had an itison voucher. The waiting staff were great, wish I could say the same for the food. Not somewhere I would rave about. Disappointing!!

lettuce in prawn cocktail was brown, then wife had burger and lettuce again was brown so she left it. It didn't look good and for the sake of 50p it should have been binned and a fresh one used. For that reason (attention to detail) we wouldn't rush back, sorry.

nice hotel, food really good, good service and nice rooms. WAY too hot in rooms and dining area, spoke to other guests and they had same complaint. No heating on in room with both windows open and it was still too hot ( not a sunny day , dull outside). Might be put off going back as made stay uncomfortable.
