Good place for local specialties

The owner/chef is quite friendly and runs the kitchen by herself. Food was consistently good and reasonably priced. Service always came with a smile.

Was a bad night weather wise, but luckily we stopped here. The food was v nice, beer and carafe of local wine reasonable. Helpful staff nice treats and not too expensive. Only diners but think this was due to the weather and midweek, looks like a local place for local people, but it is really worth trying. Ask for whatever... More

This restaurant doesn't do pizzas which was a welcome change. We had a most enjoyable meal here. Sadly only two couples in the restaurant but the man who served us was delightful and very helpful with the menu.
