The History of Loch Fyne

Loch Fyne is a seafood restaurant chain that was founded in the 1970s by Johnny Noble and Andy Lane, who started their first oyster farm on the shores of the loch. With a passion for fresh, sustainably sourced seafood, the business quickly grew to include a smokehouse and an oyster bar on the shore of the loch. As their reputation for quality and flavour grew, so did the number of sites. Today, the golden shell mussels served in Loch Fyne restaurants are supplied by Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd, the first blue mussel producer in the world to receive certification against the ASC bivalve standard. This commitment to sustainability and respect for the produce, landscape and environment remains at the heart of Loch Fyne’s philosophy and is reflected in their delicious, responsibly sourced seafood dishes.


Loch Fyne Restaurants prioritises sustainability to benefit people and the environment at every level. They strive to deliver the best seafood while honouring and preserving the environment. They consult with leading marine and environmental organisations like the Marine Conservation Society to ensure responsible sustainable sourcing. Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd supplies restaurants with fresh oysters, mussels, and langoustines while actively supporting and protecting the loch, its ecology, and the coastal communities. Loch Fyne Restaurants is committed to remaining true to its roots while supporting the environment.

Loch Fyne Seafood Review

For my starter I had scallops. If I ever see scallops on the starter menu, I always have to get them. I love them and these were delicious – cooked with chorizo and fresh herbs.

For main, I picked a sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce. This is the second time I’ve had this here. I know it’s a bit pointless going to a fish restaurant and having steak but it’s so good! They do have a few ‘from the land’ dishes – meaning if you’re doing with someone who isn’t a fish fan, they won’t be left out!
