We visited as a family group (2 households, so adjacent tables to conform with Covid rules). I was delighted to see that the restaurant was busy. The roasts were superb, as were desserts, and service was excellent. Children very happy with their meals too.

Try the smoked trout salad, abosolute show-stopper. Really great food for adults and childrens menu was perfect in size and price. Really superb place to dine, different rooms to book in from more formal to laid back and al-fresco.
