    Excellent, we were looked after from as soon as we walked in the door. Food was lovely but what really made the restaurant shine was how welcoming and accommodating the staff were. I will definitely return when I'm in the area.

    Good value country pub with honest food, service needs attention though, although staff friendly, they need more training. Forgetting basic things like clearing plates of starters fully before main courses arrive, always bringing water to the table and ensuring cutlery is replaced after starter. Customers should not have to ask for cutlery to eat their main courses. These things are simple to rectify but by ensuring staff attend to these small details customers will be more satisfied with their experience... food was very tasty though so will return again when I am in the area.

    Menu covered most folks requirements I would think. The venue was busy on the night we attended but didn't effect the service. Ours was well presented, hot and very tasty. Will certainly return.

    Had a lovely evening in The Loft with family last Thursday evening. Booking was so easy thru OpenTable. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. It was my first night out since before the pandemic and I felt completely comfortable and at ease. Tables were well spaced out but you would hardly notice because there is a cosy feel to this pub that is lacking in so many others. The Proprietors were on hand with a friendly word for everyone. Food was very reasonable and was absolutely delicious. We will be back!
