A return visit after a very long gap found this wonderful restaurant as perfect as ever. A real national treasure. Charming and unobtrusive service with fine food and modest prices. A very special place with very happy memories.

We return every year and Colin and Louisa continue to delight us with their warm reception and exceptional veggie food - equally appreciated by our non-veggie friends. Food, service and value all excellent.
