Visited the loft on the 8th May 2015, cannot rate this restaurant highly enough!! Daughter chose from the set menu, 2 courses for £15.50, very reasonable, I chose from the a la carte as really wanted a steak! Not the cheapest steak ive ordered but by far one of the best!!

Imaginative food, well presented and great service. A lovely dining space which was creatively decorated and interestingly lit with candles. Friendly and welcoming.
