Really a pub with a large dining room. Very attractive, warm atmosphere. Food is very good and predictable. We started with pate and baked mushrooms followed by chicken and leek pie and steak and shallot pie. Both good although I don't really like my steak...More

Waited 40 mins on nachos and when it arrived it was lukewarm and not very good, think our orders had been forgotten about and thrown together quickly when we enquirer about it? Not impressed!

Not great for children as not too much stuff for them to eat, other than that the layout of the restaurant is really nice!!

Stopped off here when many other restaurants were closed. Didn't really like the look of the carvary but had nice pie and fish and chips instead. There are better places food wise in the area but this is a good cheap eat.

It's a chain I'm familiar with. Good food and service. Plenty of choice of food. Is a popular pub, but plenty of room. Also offers accommodation.

Visited Lochside with some family and friends. The food was excellent and tasty. Something on the menu for all tastes. Also very good value and the staff were friendly and helpful. Couldn't fault it. Definitely deserves the good reviews.
