We are not veggies but friends are and we had delicious meals. The dishes are varied and tempting and we had difficulty choosing. There was also a good specials board. The staff were very welcoming and the atmosphere very relaxed.

We arrived unannounced and without a book as our accommodation had no WiFi and Little 4G. The very helpful assistant fitted us in before a booking. And Boy Oh Boy we were so glad they did. The food was extremely yummy and didn’t miss out...More

I had the mushroom Wellington and it was delicious. It came with fresh vegetables and I chose the chunky chips instead of potatoes. Being a vegetarian, it is so nice to come to a place where meat isn't served and knowing, without asking, that the...More
