Enjoyed an inclusive meal, as part of our overnight stay. We could not fault the food or service. All the dishes were presented thoughtfully and served professionally. We were the last in the restaurant at the end of the evening and were not rushed.

Whether for Lunch or a really special dinner this place would sit well on anyones bucket list. Not necessarily the cheapest but when does quality come cheap. Recently experienced Dinner and Breakfast here and both will be remembered and repeated.

Lovely little place with lonely staff! Pool as well was nice. Whole place was a bit dated but service and food were good. Location was good too for a sneaky romantic get away! AND free ginger bread!!

We ate at this restaurant last week and generally we were a little disappointed. The main issue was that 5 tables seem to arrive at once and we were bottom of the list. It meant we had to wait a long time for food, well...More
