Sadly the food at the Loft has gone downhill terribly since our last visit (maybe 10 months ago). Tinned burgers, dead salad and even the standard of coffee has dropped. I wouldn't recommend to anyone. Kids food type menu, burgers, sausage, pizza but wouldn't feed...More

Bit off road but worth the small detour four of us had our afternoon tea in the sunshine outdoors. Seems to be very child friendly and there is a nice play area for the bairns.

We travelled from Campbeltown and Glasgow to see the Sawdoctors at this intimate venue and were delighted with our wigwam accommodation. Perfect size for four, all the luxuries u need and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. Bring your onesies! We will be back! Xx

Lovely food and surroundings, good food and vegetarian options! However the opening times are very confusing! Have turned up several times to be told it's closed at peak lunch times? The website is never clear on when it's open? But it's lovely when it is!

Lovely wee place for coffee and scone. Child friendly was a bonus. Price for latte, scone, and a bottle of juice for under £7. Suitable for all as it does evening meals on set days

The Loft Coffee Shop is a relaxed place to enjoy great food. Locally sourced produce is used wherever possible and there are choices from light snacks to 3 course options. Seasonal hours apply so please call if unsure. The Loft is set on a working farm with farm walks and has an activity centre and Wigwam campsite on site too. Hope we see you soon.
