This seems quite a sad place to eat. The food is substandard, it lacks ambience and it feels as though it needs a good clean. The serving staff try but don't impress. It's not a place we ever want to go back to. We can't...More

Looking like a tiny house we went for the Sunday dinner. Good food, attentive staff and good wine. Reasonably priced for portion size and food quality. A quaint and quirky interior. Could not want for more.
