The place to be with friends this summer for a relaxed drink with some tasty food has to be The Loft, Wimbledon.
The new roof top bar with Burger Shack restaurant offers a dining and drinking experience set in the calm inviting space, which whisked us away from the hustle and bustle of Wimbledon town.
The decor is relaxed and welcoming. The exposed brickwork, soft lighting and chilled music made it a comfortable and pleasurable food and drink adventure. I loved the plush sofas and big chairs scattered with lots of cushions and how they worked so well with the mix of furniture inside and out. It made relaxing with good friends with a drink in the cool evening air a delight. The terrace area is bright and colourful and being so open planned makes it feel very spacious even when the bar is very busy with people enjoying themselves.
The mixture of styles between the beautifully cooked burgers and the fast food designed delivery of the meal, being wrapped up and served on a metal tray was fun and added to the quirky upbeat nature of the bar and restaurant. The range of burgers was good, and the brioche bun adds such a nice taste to go with the beef! I was very impressed by the toppings available, making each burger unique and I was especially impressed with the sides dishes. The winner for me had to be the curly dirty fries.Curly fries with a topping of pulled pork, avocado and sour cream topped, with a few hot red chilli slices. This was definitely worthy of being a full meal in itself.
It’s not often you can have a meal which feels like a holiday, but I found one in a beautiful friendly bar, with good friends, a well cooked burger, tasty sides and a glass of wine at The Loft
