Unplanned last minute lunch stop. Modest surroundings didn't give a clue to what wonderful food was to come. Beautiful flavoured hearty chowder, melt in the mouth beef and beautiful fresh vegetables. No licence but no corkage either. A fantastic hidden gem. If I lived closer...More

Yes, they have plenty of gluten free dishes. My daughter is coeliac so we have to pay particular attention to this in restaurants. She was delighted with the choices on the menu and the specials board.
