This restaurant is worth a visit - the menu is varied at competitive prices. The surroundings are comfortable with wonderful valley views with a sunny aspect. It can be crowded at weekends. The wine is rather pricey.

Great food at a good price and (weather permitting) a beautiful view! I had haddock fish cakes to start and lamb Henry roast dinner. Both were fantastic. My only minor quibble would be I love broccoli and there wasn't any.
