An historic setting – dating back over 450 years

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 which was rife along the Cornish coast. Sitting in the snug comfort of the very special 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.

Fresh fish, straight from the quay to the plate

The Old Sail Loft is one of Looe’s top restaurants, fresh seafood straight from the quay from their sister company Simply fish Looe Ltd.
