We arrived at the restaurant without a booking but the staff found us a table. Two waitresses and the service was excellent. We could see the kitchen and the food being prepared. The Wild Boar, Crackling and Squid were amazing and the portions were of a good size. The wine is really reasonable and all in all a great evening out. Make sure you book!!

My partner and I ate there last night (Aug 20) and had nine dishes. One woman serving, and busy (25 people in) but, she handled it well and coped. Food really good, adequate portions. Not the healthiest selection, but I didn't try the fish as my partner doesn't like it, but the food was really tasty and we really liked what we chose. In times to come we feel they'll have to add to the selection to keep us going back often, but we certainly liked it enough to go back again soon, and it's a lovely setting and location.

Ate here with friends a few months ago. Such a cute little place, excellent food, so tasty and perfectly cooked. Amazing house red! And great service and atmosphere - it was full on a Thursday night.

Really good value for money too, desperate to go back!!
