The daily changing lunch menu at 'Raf's' was a hit on a recent visit to The Goods Shed with friends. I had a simple but tasty starter of sardines on toast with gremolata followed by a tranche of turbot, crab & saffron. For pudding, I...More

Loved the relaxed atmosphere, the breakfast was tasty, the service wonderful. The ambiance was very nice. Only one less positive comment; the price of the drinks in particular the cappuccino; small glass not great and expensive. All in all a great morning spent here.

We visited here when we had family visiting and had a throughly enjoyable and tastey Sunday lunch. My only criticism was that the device towards the end of lunch was a little slow but otherwise, very good. We will visit again soon no doubt.
