Times change: when I first started driving thirty five years ago, the Centerville exit off Route 30 was a deserted wasteland. Rendezvousing with an old buddy here for lunch would prove to be an astonishing eye opener. Traffic and retail establishments have ballooned, an initial turn-off for the turn off, but Loxley’s would quickly amend my attitude.

This is a huge restaurant adjoining the Heritage Hotel, and totally cool from many perspectives. I was waiting for my friend to arrive with his daughter and wandered the totally fun exterior --- the theme is Sherwood Forest, and although zero patrons were sitting at the plentiful outdoor tables in late November, Loxley’s presents two stories of seating for al fresco feasts. I would eventually learn the obvious: Loxley’s thrives during summer when folks bring the kiddies to romp about outside (they even have some traditional playground facilities on the decks).

Inside is equally attractive. The wait staff is attired à la the “merry men”, so you might easily imagine the décor. The interior is quite expansive and they have wooden sign posts offering guidance towards the bar and rest rooms, but after my visit to the little boys room I was disappointed there weren’t instructions leading me back to my table! That’s how enormous this place is.

The food selection is standard fare and nothing special (complimenting the British theme, there are token selections like fish & chips). However, our costumed waitress was ideal – she checked back often enough to ensure we weren’t wanting, but not to the point of annoyance. Please don’t think I was disappointed with my meal – it was satisfactory and reasonably priced. This is not a gourmet experience, but a brilliant option if you are faced with dragging youngsters out for evening fare, or just want to do something casual, fun & different.
