Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

There were 4 of us and three enjoyed their meal a lot. Mine was the vegan option of butternut squash and chestnut stew with rice and crispy kale. It was very unpleasant. The stew was served in a small bowl and seemed to have been...reheated many times or left under a heated canopy for a long time. Despite that it was warm rather than hot. It was dried out and tasteless. There was a huge mound of plain boiled rice which added nothing but bulk to the dish. The ‘crispy’ kale was unseasoned and very oily. I ate about 1/3 of the dish, only because I was very hungry. I will not returnMore

The outside isn't pretty and we may have passed on by but I'm so glad we didn't. Very nice interior, much bigger than the outside suggests. Charming staff and most importantly, delicious food. Fantastic burgers, beef and chicken. Great menu selection and reasonable prices. Very...busy Saturday afternoon, I look forward to returning on a more relaxed day. Great job all involved.More

Booked in last minute for a Sunday roast. We were not disappointed. Had salt and pepper chicken starter, cooked in light crumbed batter, chicken was succulent and tasty. Followed up with the Roast Beef, cooked to perfection and followed by Cranach cheesecake, thoroughly enjoyed all...my courses. Served by gentleman with a pony tail who was friendly, professional and attentive. Will be back for sure!More

We were having a rough day. Rain and family stress and hungry bellies. Then we came into Loks little oasis of calm and were well looked after and Tuesday turned around . Clean plates from all 4 ( a first with our fussy kids )...full bellies and a bit of low key nurturing from attentive ( but not too attentive) staff and we leave much happier than when we came in. Good quality food, nice cosy atmosphere. Glad next door Morrisons cafe had a leak ( and we had enough money for a midweek dinner out for once … and mama got wine 😊 ). A lovely place. Thank you.More

AVOID the place if you value your health. I have just has a disgusting experience in Loks. I had the apple crumble dessert and found a coarse hair hidden in my food. Could be a nose or pubic hair for all I know. I was...grossed out by the experience as you can imagine wondering whether my main dish had also been contaminated in a similar manner unseen. What took the biscuit though was the dissmissive tone and manner the "manager" (I'll use the term loosely here) dealt with my complaint. I was met with a complete lack of professionalism from the man arguing that it could be a "arm hair". Really reassuring knowing the amount of pathogens on a person's skin. I'll not set foot in the place again and will actively discourage other potential patrons.More

It's been a while since we visited and we were not disappointed. Lovely cosy restaurant, staff attentive and friendly and food great. Two us us chose the special lunch menu and the third had the pensioner's lunch. We were all delighted with the quality of...the food and the chicken sate I had was so succulent.More

The food here is consistently good, excellent value for the price. High quality ingredients and thoughtful menu, well-executed. The market menu is great value at £16 for 2 courses and there is a good range of dishes offered. Very child friendly, £5 for mains and...£1.50 to add a starter or desert or refillable drink. The service is always great also. Would recommend for a casual meal or a special occasion.More

Thought we would try Sunday roast. No choice of meat, just beef. The beef was very tough and there was a lot of waste. Three tiny roast potatoes and I mean tiny. The veg was small amount of stringy cabbage, few peas and tiny pieces...of carrot. This all sat on nondescript gravy. Oh, there was a Yorkshire pudding, nothing wrong with that at least. No horseradish offered either. The roast was very disappointing. Wish we hadn’t bothered or just had burger or fish and chips. Waste of money. We went home hungry. Won’t be returning.More

Had Sunday lunch here. We have a tiny baby with a massive pram which causes problems in restaurants, but they were nothing but accommodating towards us. Friendly staff who were attentive even though it was quite busy. Food was delicious and the portion sizes were...excellent, which is a rarer thing in restaurants now. Sets them apart from other restaurants/bars in the Southside.More

Plenty of staff but not attentive. Took a while for them to approach us for drinks order and had to attract their attention to order more drinks later, was ignored twice, when eventually ordered, it didn't arrive so had to ask another member of staff....Starter and desert were OK but main dish of roast dinner was very poor quality. Meat was full of gristle, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding were dried out and hardly any gravy. Staff didn't smile the entire time, whipped the money for the bill away without a thanks or offer of change. (There was a generous tip included by our group). No goodbye or thank you when we left.More

We’ve been going to Loks for a very long time and have never left a review - so here goes. Loks is a great place! Decent food, great offers, lovely staff and always guaranteed to serve a really nice meal. Reading a previous negative review...was a bit weird and unfair tbh. Loks doesn’t promise to be 5 stars but isn’t far off it and the options and prices are reflective of this. Including us, they have a loyal customer base so really, that says it all in my book. :)More
