Perfect For All

Open from 10am - 8pm from Monday 13 - Thursday 16 Feb for half-term week...

A short walk from Southwold marketplace past the cannons towards the lifeboat station and campsite, and with plenty of free parking, The Sail Loft makes an easy escape from the cosmopolitan delights and the busy-ness of the High Street.

Whether a lazy, relaxed lunch or dinner, just drinks from the bar, morning brunch or afternoon resfreshment, it's the place to be.

Our laid-back, informal destination has a warm welcome, caring service and simple, good food at its heart.

We're all about simple good food, the welcome of a great neighbourhood restaurant and tasty food & drink worth travelling for.

To complement the cooking, we offer quality in the glass to match, with a fun, eclectic wine list (courtesy of Laytons of London) and a well-stocked bar for drinks plus good coffee, of course.
