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

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...

Visited the loft with some friends following a recommendation andvcwere most impressed. The welcome and attention were as good as one can expect from Caroline ( the owner) and staff. We had an amazing Chateau Briand and as a result shared a star and dessert. The meat was exquisitely prepared and amazingly tasty with the price very reasonable for what... More

We visited The Loft last night with our two friends after excellent recommendations hoping the place would live up to them. We weren't disappointed! As soon as we arrived Caroline, one of the owners, made us feel really welcome. We were offered a choice of table inside or on the twinkling,covered terrace. We chose the latter hoping to encourage summer... More

Lovely setting, lots of candles and subtle decoration. Tables thoughtfully arranged to get the best out of the view. We both had the 2 course set meal - very reasonable price. We chose the lamb tagine - bursting with flavour and really delicious. And then of course - the cinnamon doughnuts with raspberry curd! So light and tasty, we decided... More
