This was my second time at this wonderful little bistro, and I was amazed that it was even better than the first time. Why...???...because Gordon has now switched all of his home made sauces to gluten-free! Apparently he's also going to make some gluten-free sticky toffee puddings...can't wait to go back and try those!
This time I started with scallops in a lentil sauce (10 out of 10) followed by a perfectly cooked succulent fillet of Turbot (11 out of 10) with perfectly cooked fresh vegetables and crispy fried potatoes. YUUUUUUM!
Washed down with the fruity Hardy's rosé of course. (Hazel's watchful eye noticed when I was ready for another glass.)
The home made Bailey's and white chocolate iced parfait rounded off my meal (and my belly) perfectly.
I'm already looking forward to visit number 3. This place will be in my memory for a long time.

This is really such a fabulous small place, with great well cooked food. Hazel is always so welcoming and her husband is busy in the kitchen cooking. Only opens Fri and Sat and has limited number of tables, so you have to ensure you book well in advance. We just love coming here, as we know we will g great food, reasonably prices and have a catch up with Hazel!

This was our first visit and we went with friends who have been there before. Hazel does a fantastic job keeping the food and drinks coming. Gordon, we did not see, but he obviously works just as hard in the kitchen. His cooking skills are second to none. The four of us mostly chose different things from the menu and all was cooked to perfection. Each of us had a starter followed by the main meal which meant we were too full to eat dessert. At the insistence of one of our party we did order one dessert and each of us forced a little bit each. The moral of the story for us was think starter or dessert. If you can manage starter, main meal and dessert you will be very satisfied. A lovely evening with brilliant service and brilliant food. Hope to return very soon.
