Food & Drink

Great news! We're fully re-open after the lockdown and delighted to be welcoming everyone once again for our relaxed, cosmopolitan dining, either inside in our spacious restaurant and bar or alfresco in the sun.

The Sail Loft is open every day 9am - 9pm throughout the summer
(from September onwards, our autumn/winter opening times will be shorter)

Please note that these menus only reflect the style of food we offer and these actual dishes may not be available at the time of your visit.

New Take-Away service 12noon - 8pm. Telephone your orders to us at the Sail Loft on 01502 725713. See the take-away menu below.

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.  We offer local, seasonal ingredients, an emphasis on taste and a relaxed, hearty menu. Sample menus are viewable below.

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.
