Looe is fortunate to have a such a diverse selection of cafes, bistro's and fine restaurants, not to mention pubs covering all tastes and budgets. Quality food and a commitment to sourcing local produce make another great reason for visiting Looe.
Our restaurant guide (exclusively written for us by Chef Nick Barclay) highlights the best Looe has to offer, all within walking distance of The Old Bridge House. Please note that our recommendations come from personal experience and we welcome feedback from you, our guests. Maybe we missed someone out? or maybe we need to take someone off the list? Let us know, we are always interested in your thoughts. Whatever you do, have fun, relax and enjoy Looe, you’ll be glad you did!
Most of these restaurants are relatively small so be advised to book ahead and reserve a table, especially at busy times. In the off season it always pays to call ahead and make sure they are open.
We are happy to make dinner reservations at any of the local restaurants.
