Loch Fyne Farnham is always a default choice when we want a fish supper, but we also seem to arrive in hope, and leave slightly disappointed. Not for the first time we have complained that the fish portions are miniscule. Taste and garnish help of course but we find ourselves indulging in extra sides or bread to avoid the hungry post dinner syndrome.
What we can never understand is that at an average £15 just for the fish portion alone, it's strategically very false economy on the part of the Owners, Greene King , who we are told control portion size to the nth degree, not to have customers leaving satisfied. Maybe that's why Loch Fyne is often less than full on nights when you would expect them to be bursting at the seams ? Even adding 50% would be irrelevant to their actual costs when they probably waste much of the stock anyway.

Sunday lunch set menu is excellent value and quality. Proper fresh fish cooked very well and portion size is spot on. Really recommend it.

Nice setting for a chain and very welcoming.
Service was pretty slow but was good when the waitress was actually available
Food pretty good, though nothing to get too excited.

Looks a good place for a get together/family event and there looked to be a nice outside area for summer.

We booked here, using our Gourmet Society card for a 25% discount.

The service was excellent from start to finish.

The food was amazing. Very tasty and plentiful.

We've visited Loch Fyne's before, but this was our first time at their Farnham restaurant.

We will definitely return again.

I attended with 21 ladies for a hen party on a Saturday evening.

We all ordered from the set menu which is extremely good value for the quality and variety of the food. Portions aren't huge, however at £10.45 for 2 courses or £12.45 for 3, what do you expect!

The staff were extremely accommodating and as we had pre-ordered, they simply took everyone's name once we were seated, drew a table plan and brought food directly to everyone, thus avoiding standing at the top of the table shouting 'crab cakes!' with everyone having forgotten what they had asked for! The bride and organiser were also provided with a complimentary glass of champagne; which was very much appreciated!

Although we arrived before peak dinner time, service was rapid and all dietary requirements were catered for, with the staff extensively going through the menu with us prior to our arrival, to find food which guests who were allergic to gluten/fish/nuts/mushrooms could eat! Bills were provided to tables separately to allow easy payment and avoid confusion.

Overall, this was a great restaurant with great service and suited our needs entirely. Thank you!
