We emailed to reserve a table (for a Friday night) and received an immediate response.. we were made to feel welcome from the moment we got to the top of the stairs!we had a wonderful meal,in great surroundings,served by friendly staff. We were the last to leave at the end of the evening but at no point felt like we had to rush. We don't get to go out often due to having small children, but this trip to the loft was a great treat for us..thank you..only wish we lived closer to visit again soon..

We visited this lovely restaurant on a beautiful summers day in the holidays, Myself and Daughter opted to share the seafood platter, which was plenty for 2 and it was delicious. My Hubby really enjoyed the Pork Chop meal with all the trimmings and our Son ate every mouthful of his pizza, which he also really enjoyed. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and size of the meals and the Owners were really friendly. We often visit Sidmouth, so we would definately go back again....

Thank you so much for your fantastic review. The seafood platter is quite a new addition and is proving very popular, as is the t bone pork chop. We really do hope that we get to see you all again very soon.

What a joy! We booked for an early pre-theatre supper and arrived to a warm welcome; a cool,airy, spacious room with a table overlooking the Sidmouth summer street scene. The menu is designed to suit all tastes - my husband had a wonderful charcuterie and cheese platter, our fish loving friends,a delicious salmon concoction and myself as the vegetarian a beautifully fresh and flavoursome Halloumi salad with some delectable rosemary and Parmesan French fries. The desserts were as equally yummy with a special mention for the best tiramisu I have ever tasted! As we sat enjoying our meal the room filled up with more happy expectant guests and we reluctantly left with the air abuzz with good conversations and conviviality. Thank you so much we will certainly be coming again.

We had been looking forward to coming after hearing so much about the restaurant & certainly weren't disappointed. Amazing room with beautiful tables & chairs. All the food looked and tasted great. The pizza's & chocolate brownies are to die for. The staff were lovely, very friendly and provided a 1st class service. We had a enjoyable relaxing evening. We can't wait to return to Sidmouth & the Loft.

We've been three times in as many weeks. This is fast becoming a firm favourite! The menu is excellent and reasonably priced; and we have thoroughly enjoyed our visits.
