The food was good as usual but given the current Coronavirus situation I was expecting all staff to be wearing face mask/visors covering their nose- not all were. I understand these challenges. Staff were engaging however. The meal felt a little expensive at this time- so may not return as quickly as we might.

Absolutely fantastic evening, myself and my girlfriend had missed both our birthdays due to COVID and also had lots of events cancelled meaning we had missed out on making important memories. So we was wanting something very special to make up for these lots times. The food and atmosphere was incredible from walking into the courtyard below we both thought the vibe was amazing. The value for money was second to none going for the set menu on a Saturday night was amazing, the scollop starter and the steak main course was to die for. The hot chocolate pudding dessert was the weakest course but it certainly didn’t spoil the evening... a little too sweet for my taste. The only improvement I would like to see was the front of house staff looked very disappointing in there casual wear, I would have preferred to see all the front of house staff in matching Loft uniforms rather than jeans and a t-shirt, and on one waiter a cap. Overall a real fantastic evening and I would like to thank all the staff at the Loft for the memories me and my girlfriend made on Saturday night.

We had a private lunch for my son's birthday on 25th July 2020 and I can't recommend The Loft enough. We had a pre-meeting with the owner and head chef to agree the layout and menu and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was documented, even down to the music on the day and a personalised menu. The team on the day couldn't be more attentive and the food was fantastic. They catered for drinks to be brought downstairs whilst we were having photo's taken and were constantly checking everyone was OK. The restaurant itself was beautiful with its low beams and twinkly lights. I would highly recommend The Loft for any occasion.

We made our first visit to Loft at the weekend but it certainly won't be our last. The Sunday lunch menu was delicious and extremely generous in terms of portion size - we were stuffed. The restaurant is tucked away in a beautiful Tudor building and I can see it being perfect for a private gathering. We'd like to come back and try the evening menu next.

What a lovely place to have lunch or dinner. Our first meal out since lockdown. We couldn't fault the food or the service. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Everything was clean and tables placed at a sensible distance. Very suitable place to go if you have any concerns about social distancing. Thank you for a lovely meal. Wish you all the best for future bookings. Carol

Very nice ambience and has the feeling of a fine dining place however the food let’s the place down.

On the whole it was an enjoyable outing with staff paying particular attention to our two small children and making a real fuss of them - which was great - providing, for example, complimentary vegetables and Yorkshire pudding to our youngest. Unfortunately the advertised supervised children’s arts and crafts was unavailable due to illness. Service was first rate, but the food offer was not as comprehensive as at our previous visit. Only one vegetable was offered; previously we had three. The food itself was excellent and enjoyed by all. And real flexibility was offered in catering for a vegetarian - thanks.

Went to the loft for Sunday lunch with are little boy. Food was great and the children’s menu was really good. The added bonus was they had a children’s entertainer who kept my little boy busy with Lego and craft activities whilst me and my husband enjoyed are dinner. Lovely atmosphere will definitely be going back.

St Albans best kept secret for simply the best Sunday lunch around! A quirky venue, we've been half a dozen times now, the food is beautifully cooked and presented, and the variety on the menus just gets better and better. We highly recommend LOFT and look forward to our next visit very soon

Looking for a family-friendly venue for a birthday Sunday lunch we came across Loft whose USP is a supervised children’s play and crafting area. We’d visited the restaurant in a previous incarnation so knew the building. From the welcome at the door on we knew that this would be a special experience. Other reviews have criticised service and food; our experience couldn’t have been more different. Friendly, efficient service, excellent food, great ambience. In particular the way the excellent vegetables were served - sharing bowls - impressed. There was nothing not to like about Loft. We had a truly lovely time - so much so that that birthday outing is already booked. And the children’s area looked great - certainly the youngsters using it were enjoying themselves. The various parents seemed to struggle to get their offspring to come to the table for food!

The most relaxing Sunday lunch I’ve had with my daughter, normally we end up rushing the dessert or having it at home as she is fed up with sitting at the table. She loved Ariel the nanny. Food was amazing, drinks were amazing and the service was amazing. Will definitely be back.
