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.
