General information regarding evening dining

The Twine Loft serves as the dining room for the Artisan Inn, however, we are licensed to serve the public and accept reservations for those not staying at the inn.  Our restaurant is recommended by Where to Eat in Canada and is a recipient of the Newfoundland and Labrador Restaurateur of the Year Award.  We categorize ourselves as a "casual-fine dining" experience. Our Mission is to be more than just a place to eat, but to create an experience that combines a uniquely Newfoundland atmosphere with local flavours and genuinely professional and friendly service that is both attentive and relaxed at the same time.

Dine by candlelight at the The Twine Loft

Because of our small kitchen size, we have decided to focus on a small, but well-prepared menu each night. Guests are served a three-course meal with a choice between 2 appetizers, 2 main courses (usually a meat or fish option), a dessert and choice of tea or coffee. 3 course Vegan, Vegetarian, Celiac and Lactose-free menus can be arranged in advance. Please see the section below regarding dietary restrictions. All guests must pre-select their main course option the morning of the reservation and will be sent their choices the evening prior by email.

Catering to your dietary needs

We understand that set menu dining can sometimes be difficult for clients with special diets or allergies.  For this reason, the Twine Loft has developed special gourmet menus for those with such needs.  Because we require our guests to identify any allergies when they book and to contact us the morning of their reservation to pre-select their main course, we are able to have a lengthy discussion in advance so that when guests arrive for dinner they can relax and enjoy the experience.  

We do request that when discussing dietary concerns guests clearly identify between a severe dislike, an intolerance and an allergy.  This is not only because our staff go to great lengths to cater to these requests, but defining a dietary choice or dislike as an allergy can often cause misconceptions regarding allergies and their severity which can be harmful to future guests.

Minimum age of guests

Guests attending the evening dining experience at the Twine Loft must be 12 years of age or older.  Exceptions to the minimum age may be made on a case by case basis for families staying at an Artisan Inn property. This is at the discretion of the manager who will be taking a variety of factors for the requested evening into consideration. Please contact us directly if you are a guest of the inn with children and wish to dine with us. In accordance with NL liquor laws, guests under NL's legal drinking age of 19 may dine at the 5:30 sitting during high season or 7:00pm sitting during the shoulder season.  All guests dining at a 7:45 sitting must be 19 or older.


Happy Hour

Quidi Vidi Iceberg Beer

The Twine Loft offers a daily Happy Hour with special drink prices to be enjoyed on the waterside deck or in the upstairs loft. More information on Happy Hour and our beverage program can be found on our Beverage Menu and Happy Hour Page


The first floor of the Twine Loft (the dining room) is wheelchair accessible. We have 1 wheelchair accessible washroom and the waterside deck is wheelchair accessible as well. If you or someone in your party uses a wheelchair, scooter or walker, please inform us in advance and we will arrange for the closest parking spot possible.  

Because our property uses gravel in accordance with the town heritage laws, we recommend guests with wheeled mobility aids take advantage of our closer parking spots for more direct access to the ramp. The ramp is located to the right of the driveway therefore, we recommend the guest requiring the ramp enter and exit their vehicle on the right hand side.   

Should you or someone you are travelling with have a disability, do not hesitate to discuss ways we can better serve you when you make your reservation, or when you are on the premises.  It is our goal to provide the best dining experience to everyone we serve and continuously educate ourselves on best practices. 

Making a Reservation:


Guests can contact the Twine Loft at 1-709-464-3377 to make a dinner reservation.  Our building is open from 8am-10pm during most days in our season (May-October) so if you are in the area you can stop by to reserve.

Online Reservation Requests

Through our online booking system, you may make a dinner reservation request.  This is a request only and is not a confirmed dinner reservation until you receive a confirmation email from us.  Please do not use this system if you are making a booking for the same day as it may not be seen in adequate time.
