One of our most favourite restaurants. Fabulous food, fabulous service from helpful, friendly and professional staff. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and relaxed. This is a must for anyone who enjoys a great eating experience.

Once again we had a great meal, not our first, with good freindly staff and comfortable and non pretentious surroundings. Menu items very varied and freshly produced.

Treated to a lovely 3 course fixed price meal by my friends. We all enjoyed each course and the home made bread very much.
