Food & Drink

The Sail Loft is all about simple good food, the welcome of a great neighbourhood restaurant and tasty food & drink worth travelling plus relaxing, cosy accommodation upstairs to make a night or two of the occasion.

For us, that means local, seasonal ingredients, an emphasis on taste and a relaxed, hearty menu.

AFTERNOON TEA AT THE SAIL LOFT
Monday – Friday 1.30-3.30pm   £19.95 per person
Enjoy a selection of finger sandwiches, savoury treats such as our chef’s scotch egg and potted smoked mackerel with sourdough toast, fruit scones with cream and jam, cakes and slices with a pot of tea and a glass of prosecco. Must be booked at least 24 hours ahead of your reservation date and it is not available during school holidays.

To complement the enjoyable cooking from our team of enthusiastic chefs, we offer quality in the glass to match, with a fun, eclectic wine list and a well-stocked bar with great Suffolk cask ales and draught beers, plus an array of non-alcoholic alternatives and decent coffee.

Bought in late 2016 by well-known Suffolk chef-restaurateur Jonathan Nicholson, Jonny brings his experiences from owning and running several Good Food Guide-recommended Suffolk destinations over the years such as The George at Cavendish, Carlton Manor and Southwold Pier. He also owns The Bell At Sax', a lovely neighbourhood restaurant-with-rooms on Saxmundham High Street.

We hope you will visit Southwold and The Sail Loft soon and discover our relaxed cafe-restaurant-with-rooms and the simple, good food we like to be known for.

Sample menus are available below. On Thursday evenings from 4 October until Easter, we have our themed cuisine nights with a simple, no choice supper offered at £15 per person. The themes rotate weekly between Oriental, Indian, Mexican and Italian cuisines.
