Who Are We…

Our Approach

The Hayloft. What we stand for...


"Hailing from Manchester, Matt worked his way through Michelin Star kitchens in London, Birmingham, Liverpool & Paris, winning a Caterer & Hotelkeeper Acorn Award in 2010.


Cornwall bound with his Cornish wife Linsay; Matt has worked within some of the best hospitality institutions in the county.


The Burns family bought The Hayloft Restaurant & Cooplet & Co. Catering & Events in 2016. We strive to deliver the best of local & seasonal; everything we do is cooked from scratch, fresh on site.


In an age of chain brands, fast and processed food, we want to take a stand! Living and working in "Englands Garden", we want to express the food and flavours of the land & sea on our menus.


We are not fine dining, we are relaxed fresh Cornish dining- great home cooked, seasonal food in a relaxed atmosphere.


Our food changes with the ebb and flow of nature, and we want to deliver this to all of our customers.In doing this we naturally lower our footprint on the planet, and by investing in other routes and technologies we aim to become as sustainable a business as we can; always reviewing and adjusting to improve how we achieve this.


We all love what we do, always striving for the best, wanting to see customers leaving with a smile- "That's The Hayloft"


All our meat is Cornish and as local as possible!
Fish from Cornwall wherever we can!
