The Loft Restaurant

The Loft in Belper offers high-quality bistro dining in a stylish, intimate setting. Locally sourced produce is integral to the menu, the drinks options are vast, and the service is formal but friendly.

Hidden away above a shop on the High Street, it opened its doors in November 2016 and has quickly become a local favourite. Owner and head chef Craig Tyrrell realised a long-term dream when he opened a restaurant in his home town, and today he creates traditional British dishes with a modern twist.

The Loft is modern but retains a rural feel, with wooden floors and warm, neutral colours. On our visit we particularly loved the roast chicken terrine and beetroot with goats’ cheese starter; and the honey-roast pulled pork main, which came with an interesting tomato and basil ragu with baby onions and olives – a winning combination!
