Menu was delightful and hard to choose,,,choose the Rack of Lamb.and Duck for mains a fab choice..also loved the venision eclair entree ..mouth watering...a lovely evening with friendly staff. Ideal for that "Special" treat as higher end in costs.
Willgo again on next visit.

We arrived, without booking, in miserable weather. I think the weather had affected the atmosphere of the whole town as the place was almost dead. I imagine that it is not always like that!! The food was okay and the menu was pretty varied to cater for all tastes but I thought it was a little pricey for what we had. We too had a table at the back of the restaurant so maybe that also contributed to our less than optimum experience. Perfectly adequate though.

Right in the central shopping district. Small but well-appointed dining room. A casual, relaxed atmosphere puts the focus on the great food. The beef, lamb and fresh fish dishes were all pronounced excellent. A small but well-chosen wine list.
