SquareMeal Review of Loch Fyne Gracechurch Street

Loch Fyne bucks the trend among national chains by offering a food & wine experience well above its high-street station. Selections from its recent menus such as hake with samphire, smoked salmon ‘sashimi-style’ with wasabi & soy, or ‘bradan rost’ with couscous salad, mango & coriander are dishes you might expect in flash big-city eateries – not in simply attired, accessible town-centre restaurants where ‘the food is reasonably priced & generously served’. This chain also caters for more traditional tastes, witness whitebait, mackerel pâté, fish & chips or fisherman’s pie alongside the group’s raison d’être – sustainably sourced oysters, mussels & langoustines from Loch Fyne itself. Most of the globetrotting wine list is available by the glass, with credible, fish-friendly pours including Albariño & Grüner Veltliner.

Menu had plenty of delicious looking choices, restaurant was not overly busy, therefore not too noisy for a business lunch. Adequate service: occasionally rather abrupt. Good value with a voucher located somewhere online.

Mark D. bronze reviewer 07 September 2011

This was my third visit to Loch Fyne in the City and it is averaging out to be a decent venue for a lunch. Good oysters, fresh fish and solid puds to suit most. We all had and enjoyed a dozen well presented oysters, that went down a treat. Main's of Dover Sole and mixed fish were fresh and very nice. My only gripe is the service. It is never bad and the staff are very polite and helpful. Then come the errors! I specified olive oil rather than butter for my main and was told no problem-then it arrives dripping in butter. it was replaced without a problem but this is the second time in two visits this has happened. Simply no excuse. Coffee was ordered and arrived really quickly but cold-again, how? So a nice venue but needs to pay more attention to detail.
