“Great experience”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

First visit to Stratford upon Avon & wandered up sheep street looking for a decent restaurant. We liked the look of the menu as I don't eat meat & popped in on the off chance of a table. Having left our reading glasses back at the hotel we were struggling to read the menu when amazingly a selection of reading glasses were brought to our table!!! We ordered a couple of sharing platters and were taken a back by the standard of the food. The service was just fantastic & the host Paul took time to chat & find out a little bit about us. Our waitress Liv was lovely, friendly & enthusiastic. All in all a truly wonderful dining experience & when we visit the area again Loxleys will be on the top of our list.

“Good Food”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Looked around Stratford and Loxleys seemed the most attracted to, menu was the reason why we opted for this restaurant. Monday was pretty quite day and although we booked in the afternoon this was not necessary. The meals, we ordered two "Sharing Platters" was substantial and pleasantly executed although the table we were given was not big enough to hold the "Sharing Platters" We had to change tables whilst the waiters holding our platters struggled to move us to another table, maybe with this hindsight they should be more prepared. The waiter which I will not name should be more educated on what they restaurant is serving, when asked what fish do you use for the gravlax, he informed me it was haddock! hmmm. Nevertheless, the food was excellent, service was good and certainly would visit again.

Dear Kim C.

Thank you for this great feedback after visiting Loxley's during your recent trip to Stratford Upon Avon.

Thanks for your comments on our menu. Our Sharing boards are a little on the large size and can Imagine with two on the table it may have been a little tight for your wine ,water etc .(perhaps I should ask Chef to make them smaller !!! ) Only joking !

I think that perhaps there has been a little communication problem with the Gravlax and maybe the waiter heard you ask what was the fish ( you meant on the sharing board ) and perhaps he thought you meant fish of the day which is haddock so misunderstood your question - sorry.

I am really pleased that you enjoyed your boards and that you will visit us again,we look forward to it.

Kind Regards.

John

“Great food great service”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Loxley's was the perfect venue for our Anniversary meal, the staff were delightful, welcoming and charming. Our table was on the left as one enters Loxleys, a perfect spot that was intimate but still providing an opportunity to people watch.The food was great with an impressive array of vegetarian options. The mains were freshly home made with attention to detail that makes the experience special, even the salad was a work of art with super thin slices of cheese on top, wonderful! I recommend Loxley's to all that are committed to good food above price. Also the climate control was a blessing after a sweltering day.

“Great as usual”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Another lovely meal at Loxleys. This restaurant never fails to please. We hadn't booked, but were found a table outside. Shortly after receiving our main course it started to rain and we were quickly and efficiently relocated to a table inside. Simone, who has served us before, remained smiling throughout, and couldn't have been more attentive. The food as usual was superb!

“Lovely meal...”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We visited our daughter who was living and working in Stratford upon Avon so I had searched on trip advisor for restaurants in the area and found Loxleys had excellent reviews.
We didn't book and it was busy so we had to sit outside, there was only us out there so it was a bit lacking in atmosphere (which was shame because the inside was lively and buzzing) I was a bit chilly so the waitress put on the heating but after a few minutes I was melting only to be told we couldn't turn it off because it was on a timer, we had to move tables to get away from the heaters and they were on for the duration of our meal which was quite uncomfortably hot.
My garlic prawns were nothing short of spectacular, absolutely delicious but just lacking some crusty bread to dip up the gorgeous garlicky juices, I was tempted to slurp them off the plate but had to very reluctantly leave them! The chicken kiev is to be recommended, an original take on a popular dish and it was very tasty. My husband's meal was equally good, we didn't have room for pudding!
Despite a couple of niggles Loxleys gets 5 stars from me, friendly staff and wonderful food... we will be back and next time we will book!

Dear Aunty Anne 2104.

Thank you for dining at Loxley's whilst visiting your daughter recently.

I am very pleased that you enjoyed both the food quality and service that Loxley's offers.

it is always better to book if possible,I understand it is not always possible, but perhaps then we could have offered you a table inside the restaurant ,due to the lovely weather we have been experiencing the courtyard dining section has in fact been on a wait list recently but on chillier evenings we use the wall mounted heaters to take off the chill for those guests who wish to dine Al Fresco ! and rather than say no sorry to walk in guests we give this option,however the heaters are on one hour timers which is why the waitress explained they could not be switched off - sorry !

I am however pleased to hear that you did have a nice time with us and hopefully we may have the pleasure of your company again in the future.

Thanks for taking the time to let us have this feedback.

Kind Regards

John
