Loft serves the best of British produce, cooked simply but with imagination.


We champion local suppliers where possible. The menus draw on chef owner Nick Male’s 30 years of cooking while also looking to innovate.

The wine list offers a wide variety with the addition of fine wines by the glass using the Coravin wine system and a weekly changing book of single bottle finds.

Loft is set in a 600-year old building in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter in St Albans and had been fully renovated prior to opening.

Guests are welcome to enjoy drinks in the bar, lunch or dinner in the dining room and we cater for meetings and celebrations in the restaurant and our private dining room.

We are open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday and lunch Friday to Sunday.
We are available for corporate and private bookings from Monday to Sunday on request.
