The Loft Restaurant & Terrace

Welcome to The Loft St Ives. We are situated in the artist’s quarter of the picturesque town of St Ives. The building itself has been a restaurant for over fifty years enjoying the quiet views over the rooftops and into the harbour. We took over the business in 2012 and since then have been providing a family run service using only local ingredients.

Our menu follows our ethos of finding the best ingredient we can and cooking it simply with lots passion. We only use local day boats for our line caught Cornish fish, and source our meat from only the highest regarded specialist Cornish pork, beef & chicken suppliers. We pride ourselves on the quality of our product and ensuring the best possible farming methods are only ever used. Because of this our prices and menus may change from day to day depending on market prices and produce. Our chefs forage on a daily basis around the Cornish coast to try and get some of St Ives onto your plates whether that be wild watercress, mustard leaf, sea lettuce, rock samphire…whatever we can find to improve the dish. Children are very welcome in the restaurant, we do have highchairs and a children’s menu; which changes like the a la carte menu with what’s freshest.

We create everything from scratch from our sauces to homemade breads and pasta's etc. because of this we know every ingredient that goes into a dish and we are very flexible at being able to offer lots of dietary requirement alterations. Nearly all of our menu is available as gluten free. Please just ask your waitress when booking and we can advise you of the dishes currently suited to the requirement and if possible we will always try to make alterations for the diner.
We have a large heated undercover terrace and we are able to allow well-behaved doggies on leads in this area for lunch and dinner. We just ask for a £1 donation which is donated to our local Wheal Alfred animal rescue and rehoming centre.
