Service a little abrupt and rude. I don't like to be interrupted before the meal by 'I am going to interrupt your conversation etc' Also do not really like to be told at booking - Oh, and we will need your table by 8.15! Fish...More

Unfortunately we do not allow dogs in the restaurant or have seating to dine outside. There is plentiful parking close to the restaurant and we are happy to provide a bowl of water or anything that may help.

Children of all ages are welcome at Loch Bay but please note we do not offer a separate childrens menu. We are happy to simplify dishes and offer smaller portions where possible.
