Lovely place albeit a bit of a strange location. Great food nice people relaxed atmosphere. Lamb dish was superb. Kids were tolerated well. Due to location there’s very little phone signal but probably not a bad thing... would definitely go again if I was nearby.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was friendly. Great for children as it is a very relaxed restaurant set-up: they got pencils to draw on the paper table cloth and were very happy. Everyone loved their meals.

Two meals, one was good, the other average, was reheated chicken, and don't like the taste of that. There was certainly enough food, but was not up to the quality of a meal we had there a few years ago.
