About Us

We acquired the site for Loomies in August 2007 and opened the doors on the 1 st of September 2007. It had been closed / derelict for almost 3 years as far as we are aware.

It was not in the best of conditions with floors fallen in and leaking roof, not to mention the general condition it had been left in when it closed..!!!

Thanks to a great bunch of friends and some very skilled, fast and accommodating craftsmen, we got it done with quite literally minutes to spare.

It’s just the two of us most of the time with some help from our family and friends. So when we say we are a family run café, we definatly are!

We have moved forward faster than expected and have our Garden area ready for use and already have our big screen, pool table and sofas.

We are open for everyone to enjoy but being situated on two of the finest biking roads in the south we do get many bikes even in bad weather. I must admit that watching bikes coming in and out on a lovely day does make us jealous being keen bikers ourselves.

During 2008 we have accumulated a great and varied bunch of regular customers who continue to make the cafe a welcoming and interesting place to be. Some of whom even seem to have adopted it as a second home (You know who you are guys..!)

We also trialed a full on bike day with the help of Moto Rapido of Winchester and Snells of Alton, two local Ducati dealers. The day went brilliantly with demo rides and the Ducati show lorry, a good time had by all and some pictures can be seen in our gallery.

Due to this success we are hoping to continue these with as many makes as possible in 2009.... keep an eye on the events page for more details.
