I hesitate to write anything nice about this wonderful restaurant because I selfishly don't want it to get any busier than it already is. Everything about it is first class from the friendly welcome you receive on entering to the complimentary liqueur at the end....More

Yes, as others have said there is a car park to the rear. Can't recommend it enough. We have been going weekly now for years which speaks for itself. I hope you enjoy it.
