Out riding my bike and came across this jewel. Outstanding service and food to die for. The bonus is the wonderful back garden where you are able to enjoy your meal and/or drink. I will be back to try supper.

I don't remember the type of flooring. We were able to talk to each other, except for a short time when the waitress was taking orders at the table next to us. They have a special room for groups. Probably best to ask for a... More
