Old Sail Loft Looe Cornwall
The old Sail Loft Restaurant one of the oldest buildings in Looe, still largely preserved in its original form, the cellar and loft are known to date back at least 450 years. Reputed to be a former haunt for smugglers and sea faring men of the 16th Century, it was then known locally as "The Run" probably due to it's time honoured association with smuggling.
Sitting in the snug comfort of the veryspecial atmosphere generated by no small part by it's historical associations, it is not difficult to imaging the old sailing boats of the early 1500s moored to the quay outside.
Glance at the original beams and roof trusses built of old English oak, some of them said to have been salvaged from the timbers of local wrecks.
Open Evenings and for lunches. We specialise in Steaks & fresh local fish from the quay, a`la carte and bistro. We are on the quay side overlooking the harbour.
