Good food but service not the same

Great setting and interior, booking essential. Food good but service a bit disjointed many staff but no one owned our table and so service hit and miss.

Interesting menu, friendly staff, lovely interior, booking essential. Service was a little ad hoc - one minute over attentive staff, the next none available. Overall a little pricy for what we got.

Just had a really good meal at The Loft. it's been 4 years since we've been here and it more than lived up to our expectations, even our 6 yr old remembered where she had sat when she was 2! Don't be fooled by the understated menu, we eat out regularly and the combination of flavours and presentation of the... More

Very enjoyable meal for our wedding anniversary. Friendly staff. Excellent ham hock starter and beef/steak main course followed by glorious chocolate pudding. A bit pricey was the only critisism.

Lovely little place. I ordered a salad but was disappointed to find a sticker from some fruit in it! When I informed a member of staff they took it away and brought me a new one - but would have preferred to have it knocked off my bill (or given the option) nevertheless the food was lovely. May return in... More

This has to be our favourite restaurant in St Ives and we look forward to our holidays here knowing we'll get to visit The Loft. The staff are very friendly and accommodating to our dog which makes for a relaxing meal for us and a great change to being stuck in a pub garden. The food is excellent, we always... More
