We stumbled upon this place for a late lunch after a disappointing visit to The Tate. The Loft was lively. Very friendly people. Good service and lovely food, especially the Chowder. Wine was well priced. Lovely outside area when weather permits. Highly recommended.

Lovely place to have that evening drink, outdoor terrace and cosy sofas inside. Snacks eg hummus and pitta bread and olives. Good choice of drinks but not real ale.

Such nice friendly place with very helpful staff and AMAZING food! You MUST visit and try any bit of the fish provided on the menu! Don't have steak even though it's also great, try fish... after all you're in a fishing village.

We are situated in the artists quarter of the picturesque town of St Ives. Our menu uses the best local ingredients we can and cooking simply with passion.
