Friendly staff, delicious food

I visited this place early last year, and was pleasantly surprised at how bright and cheery the place felt, despite the cold weather. The staff greeted us warmly, and catered for my toddler well. The food was utterly delicious, and I would gladly recommend this place to friends (in fact I have... read more

A bit of a friends' 'Road trip' lead us here since I had eaten lunch at the Loft very happily in the past. We (5 plus toddler) had a relaxed and leisurely dinner with attentive but not pushy service. The Chateaubriand I shared with my friend across the table was so perfect that it demanded time and a full-bodied red...... More

Knowing I had visited the area in February last year, I was asked by a lady I work with to recommend 'somewhere special' in St. Ives for her daughter to spend a birthday afternoon with some friends. I recommended the loft without hesitation. We had endured a terrible 10hr drive from Liverpool in some of the worst weather this country... More

I visited the Loft with my family for lunch. The waitress who served us was great with the children and brought them ice cream, made a fuss of them and it was a real treat. Our food was lovely and filling - we could tell it was good quality / healthy ingredients and

We visited the Loft on Saturday 27th December. We were a party of 4 adults. My brother and his partner had come down to us for Christmas. We were having a day out and a meal. As there was a party already going on inside the restaurant we decided to sit out on the balcony which was covered in and... More

This party appeared to be the only reason they had opened this day. We were informed because of the party our meal/s would be 15>20 mins. 40 minutes later our... More

We had large party of 9 including grandparents and young children for an early dinner but were very impressed with The Loft which we had researched in advance as one of our party has mobility issues. Whilst the steps up to the restaurant are a little daunting they can be managed with some help for someone with difficulty walking and... More

Where to start! A group of Four of us went to The Loft for dinner and boy they didn't disappoint. To start I couldn't resist going for the Truffle Tortellini with chestnuts and Cornish Yarg cheese. In my opinion truffle with anything is always a must have on a menu, and this was no exception. Next up I went for... More

Eight of us booked for dinner on a Saturday evening at The Loft - we had hoped to arrive for 8.30pm but were asked if we could come earlier, at 8pm. We enter The Loft to find one other couple dining, and were shown to a pleasant long table at the end of the attractively-lit restaurant . We chose from... More

Spacious and contemporary with views out to sea. The Loft has a delicious menu with daily specials including a wonderful mackerel scotch egg - yum! Off season it is very quiet on Saturday lunchtimes owning to it being change over day but I can imagine it being quite a lively evening venue. Would be able to accommodate large groups without...
