Great little Bistro un afraid to go slightly ‘off grid’ with unusual flavour pairings.

Great service and respectable prices.

Now the Bistro Gravy……….. off the wall and so good.

We dine here every Sunday lunch time if we can. The food is always excellent and with a varied menu, we always have a good choice. There is always the traditional Sunday roast on the menu, but several other choices are available. My steak this Sunday was oustanding and cooked to perfection. The owners and staff are lovely people and we can highly recommend The Bistro - you'll never come out from here hungry!

We visited The Bistro last year whilst on holiday and were so impressed we went again last week whilst on holiday for dinner. Once again an excellent menu and excellent dinner. The staff are always helpful and the little bistro has plenty of ambience. Would definitely recommend a visit.

I dont normally write reviews but just had the most amazing meal here!!!
Roast beef dinner-when I saw the size of the plate I thought I would never finish it all but was so tasty I polished off every bit and had to refrain from licking the plate..
Other half had the baked salmon on a chowder again so tasty said was the best meal he had had in A LONG TIME and we are frequent diners of restaurants.
Highly recommend if you are in the area
