Had a perfect evening here with a friend I had not seen for quite a while. Food was superb and service was spot on. Really enjoyable evening all round. Keep up the good work, Nick and team!

Lovely menu and food and the room is stunning but could do with having dimmer lighting as it lacked a bit of atmosphere

Fantastic service. Our waiter, Sam, was amazing with our children. Really went the extra mile to make sure we all enjoyed our meal. Food was fresh and delicious.

It would be helpful if in future you can deliver everyone's meals at the same time !! It slightly spoilt our night having to Wait ages between plates being delivered to our party. If an order is taken from 4 people at the same time then why can't u deliver food at same time? Also, 3 desserts arrived before we were then told the 4th dessert was not available and did they want to make another choice !

Huge thank you to Nick and everyone at the Loft. We had a large party of over 20 people, and the food and service were great. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their lunch and we hope to visit again soon!

Came here with the family for a birthday meal. Such a beautiful restaurant with lots of character and a light and spacious atmosphere. We were warmly welcomed and I was wished a Happy Birthday on arrival which was lovely. The service continued to be superb throughout the afternoon. We had all of the Sunday lunch menu between us and everyone said how beautifully presented and delicious their food was. Really enjoyed our afternoon thank your so much Nick and team. Would readily recommend Loft to friends, especially for a special occasion as we were so well looked after.

We visited the restaurant again for an early Father's Day lunch as a family of six. The service as usual was excellent and the food was delicious and as we all dined using the set menu it was also brilliant value. I had the feta salad as a starter followed by moules & fries which were lovely and I always appreciate that the Loft set menu always has a fish and veggie option on the set menu. I am sure we will be back again soon as not only is the food and service excellent the espresso martini's are also a big hit!!

The food was very good and we enjoyed the physical restaurant setting and busy atmosphere. However, we arrived 15-20 minutes early for our reservation to have a drink at the bar. We ordered a bottle of wine which never materialised. We were then escorted to the table 10 minutes later and told our wine would meet us there. When The server returned to take our food order, we again ordered the wine and a bottle of water. The waiter returned about 10 minutes later to see if we had ordered any drinks yet (twice at this point) and took our wine and water order again. The food arrived a few minutes later, but we still had to wait a few minutes before our drinks finally arrived. Whilst the food was great, the prices are not acceptable if they are not accompanied by same high standard of service. The staff were all very friendly, there just seemed to be a lack of organisation.

Third time of eating at the Loft. The previous times there were a lot of us. This time it was just the two of us. We were treated exactly the same both times. The Staff are brilliant. They are knowledgeable about the food, give good service and add to the atmosphere with their friendly manor. The food is excellent. A

Lovely service and atmosphere- food slightly disappointing given the high cost. Pork main course was much enjoyed as was the crab starter. Steamed spinach was swimming in water, allegedly caramelised onions that went with liver and bacon were basically fried a bit - soft but no way caramelised. Starters nice but the prawn and squid dish was crying out for a piece of bread to soak up the flavoursome juices left in the bottom of the bowl.

We had a great meal with some friends at Loft on a Friday evening. Started with drinks at the bar. I really like the menu at Loft. We all found it difficult to chose what we wanted as we liked the sound of so many of the dishes. We were not disappointed. Really enjoyed the tuna starter and plaice main course. Lovely wine and assistance from the staff in our choices. We will be back.

Atmosphere was good but as we went on a quiet midweek night we were unable to fully judge. The staff exceeded my expectations and the food was simply delicious.

Absolutely glorious food- from the delicious cocktail pre dinner to the warmed bread, to the most delicious crab starter, and the lamb main was absolutely melt in the mouth. Cannot wait to rebook! Attentive staff were first class.
