This restaurant was surprisingly good given the unpretentionness of the exterior. It appears to be an old pub which has bee refurbished into its current format. Exellent food, great service and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

I'm unsure however if you look the restaurant up online. I'm sure they'll have their opening and closing times on their web page. As it may change seasonally depending on busy times.

I am unsure but you could call and ask, or see if they have a menu online. I'm sure they would accommodate a request if they don't have it on their menu. Hope this helped ;)
