Delicious food in very pleasant surroundings, although this restaurant is hidden away it is well worth a visit to the harbourside to find it.

We arrived in Looe to find several eating places closed. The information centre suggested the Old Sail Loft might be open; it was and we were not the only diners. The location is right on the quay so we were able to watch the fishing boats going out as we ate. We started on a nice bottle of local 'Bacchus'... More

This restaurant is in the perfect location. We ate on a miserable January night, but the view, although rough, was stunning.

My husband made a poor choice, his mistake,... More

Been here a couple of times before. Great food at reasonable prices with a good choice of drinks. Service was a bit slow this time, but they were full so understandable.

The building is very atmospheric and it’s not that hard to imagine hardened smugglers or pirates supping ale and whispering dark doings to each other in the darker corners of the room. Being...
