Old Loans Inn started life as an 18th century coaching inn in the village of Loans on the outskirts of Troon.
Not many guests arrive by horse and coach these days but the inn still has a sterling reputation for looking after travellers, holidaymakers, local residents and anybody who enjoys good, honest food in convivial surrounds.
Tuck in to all that the Old Loans Inn has to offer with today’s Big Deal on a meal for two with a glass of Prosecco each.
