What a wonderful review, thank you so much - as you say, Cecilia's sauces are all made from original ingredients (no bought in pots, jars or bottles) and it's really good to know that the difference is understood and appreciated. Thank you again.

We can cater for large groups in our super function room which can seat 50 people comfortably, so we are perfect for kiddies parties (we have play equipment in the garden), wedding receptions,family gatherings or events of any kind, so please just ask and we'll be happy to discuss your needs. There is FREE WiFi and doggie treats and bowls of water for well behaved dogs, and we host cribbage and petanque teams through the year. We're open every day from 12 noon (except Monday when we open at 5pm), we serve lunch from 12 - 3 and evening meals from 6 - 9 every day except Sunday, when we serve lunch from 12 - 4, and Monday when the kitchen is closed.
