Went here for dinner as menu looked great. Arrived around 8pm and ordered in the bar before being showed to our table in the restaurant. There we waited for well over 40 mins for our starter which required no cooking. The starter never arrived but lo and behold our main courses did !! Both looked like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for a very long time indeed. We were offered a free drink as was everyone else in the restaurant who seemed to be having similar issues !! If this is service on a quiet midweek night I dread to think of what happens at the height of the season !!!

Came too late for afternoon tea which stops at 14.00 (I was told) but the food was good and the service was very attentive. There are only a few seats but if you can get in this is definitely worth a visit

Poped in for a coffee and sat outside with the lovely weather. I'm a fan of coffee and the coffees we had were well presented with all tge trimmings, wasn't hungry enough for food but the menu look good. The chap had a good sense of humour will definitely be back

We popped in here prior to dinner at our hotel and although it was part of the quiet season, there was a nice group in there to make it seem busy and the fire was roaring away! Lovely!

The wine and the beer were good quality and a reasonable price.

Great Pre dinner drink for us!
