If you are ever down the shore please check this place out. It’s warm, friendly, reasonably priced with a good selection of wine and food. Can’t for it to reopen. The service in here is also fantastic.

Heading home from an abortive shopping trip, decided that coffee was in order as we passed Leith. Parking always difficult on weekdays, but spot across the road from Cafe Tartine was there, and it looked a suitable coffee stop. Pleasant ambience with range of seating...More

I came here with a group on a trip and there was a specific menu to choose from. First of all the decor is so charming! I love the look of the deep blue/grey alcoves and stark white walls along with the mismatched country wood...More

We popped in for dinner on Saturday night and had what I can only describe, as our best dining experience of 2019. The heating was cranked up to the nines, perfect on winter nights. The background music nice and mellow which set a great atmosphere....More
