Loch Fyne

Who are they

Loch Fyne, Shrewsbury, is a branch of a national chain of seafood restaurants which prides itself on serving high quality sustainable fish and seafood - much of which still comes from Loch Fyne itself. Plenty of places throw around the 'sustainable' label, but this restaurant demonstrates a genuine commitment to protecting the resource that allows the business to prosper. They started out as a small shack selling what they caught, and now boast more than forty restaurants throughout the UK. Ours, is located on Market Street, just around the corner from the famous Old Market Hall. The restaurant's dining space is light and airy, with big floor to ceiling windows on two sides. Tables, chairs, floor and ceiling beams are all light brown wood and give the interior a very modern and stylish look.

Recognising that not everybody wants to eat during strict hours during lunch or in the evening, Loch Fyne is open seven days a week from 9am all the way through until 11pm, making it a great place to visit whenever the opportunity arises, or the mood takes you.

What do they offer

Diners can choose from the standard à la carte menu, or from a set lunch menu, both of which are comprehensive, favouring fish eaters as you would expect, but making it perfectly possible for vegetarians and carnivores alike to join their friends and family for a memorable meal. As well as being works of art in their own right, their menus are seasonal, so please visit this page of their website for the latest versions.

Why do we like them

There aren't many seafood restaurants and there are even less doing seafood as well as this company. Everything from the restaurant interior and branding, to the staff, to the quality and presentation of the food itself, shouts quality. Restaurant chains often fail to deliver anything more than a faceless brand, but Loch Fyne is different. The restaurant and its staff clearly care about and believe in what they are offering, which makes for a great dining experience. eatShrewsbury has no problem in recommending you eat here.

I have to say I didn't have high expectations of Loch Fyne. I had heard mixed reports from friends and it is a chain restaurant after all. But I have to say I found it very impressive. The interior is very light and airy and the tables and general atmosphere make you feel like you are sitting in someone's kitchen rather than in a fish restaurant. I liked that. There was plenty of choice, and a specials board. Despite them being quite busy were were quickly brought drinks and received starters soon after. I've never had such a strong desire to take out a camera and photograph my food as I did when my starter arrived. The presentation was unbelievably good, and the main course was just as good. In terms of taste, I couldn't fault any of the dishes I tried. I will say that it isn't cheap and you don't get a lot for your money, but then seafood and fish are only going to get more expensive as we continue to decimate the oceans. For a chain restaurant they are doing a fantastic job and obviously care about their product. It was also refreshing to see a Shrewsbury restaurant who understand marketing, with a table mat voucher scheme and a business card for a free bottle of wine on your next visit. Not rocket science, but they are one of the few forward thinking restaurants in town and for that reason alone they should do well. I will definitely eat here again.

Recently discovered Loch Fyne and it's extremely impressive! There is an extensive a la carte menu and also a set lunch menu very reasonably priced at £10.

The service is always friendly, professional and swift and they all work as a team with the chef sometimes lending a hand!!!

I would definitely recommend and there are always lots of offers on their website!

A chain, but a good one, the fish is always fresh and the service fast and friendly, I can recommend the seafood platter to share, delicious! I did find the Bradan Rost starter rather dry though and it can sometimes get noisy and the tables rather tightly packed, not one if you're looking for a quiet meal.

I didn't think much to risotto until I discovered Loch Fyne; their smoked haddock risotto was just delicious and has enlightened me. For a chain restaurant I have always found the food very pleasant and the staff charming. The building is sadly a little impersonal but don't let that discourage you.

We have eaten at Loch Fyne a few times now and have always enjoyed it. Good, friendly service with fresh food. Also a good deal when you eat there when kids eat free. Kids always enjoy their food. Will be eating here again.
