Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We popped in on the off chance and wow what a wonderful place to have found, the ploughman's was amazing and the vegetable toasty was mouthwatering. Staff was super friendly, and we loved the atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit.

Liked the look of the outside of this place, loved the look of the inside and the atmosphere. A warm welcome took us to a cosy table and an Interesting menu. Shows what you can do with a great idea, deceptively simple but really good...ingredients, flair and attention to detail. The ploughmans is spectacular, generous and beautifully done. The platters look amazing too. Great food all day long ...cant wait to come back in the evening and add their wine choices.More

Amazing service, staff super friendly and helpful with suggesting things from both drink and food menus. Food was delicious, hot and well presented with fast preparation time for food and drinks. Nice calm atmosphere with cute lights and decorations. For a small place the tables...are spaced well and very clean and tidy. Well worth the money. Had a fabulous time over all!!More

Having been given a voucher for this restaurant as a birthday present we went and enjoyed a wonderful mixed platter for two. It consisted of four cheeses and four meats of our choice together with grapes, apple, olives humus etc. All delightfully presented in lovely...surroundings and washed down with a bottle of good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and later good coffees. All in all a great experience, and we will return.More

A little Gem of a place. The hospitality was second to none, they welcomed us and make you feel special. Even though it is a wine bar style place they welcomed my little one and were amazing her and accomadated her with a babichinno and...a little cheese platter, most places like this wouldn't of been so warm when you have a kid in tow. The decor is quaint and cosy. Such a lovely afternoon and was sad to leave, will definitely be returning.More
