The decor of the restaurant is smart, but this restaurant has the feel of a place you can go for a relaxed meal or for a special occasion. The starters were out of this world, a small selection to choose from, but all created with passion and in a large quantity. The quality which then leads into the main and... More

Went here for my birthday and it was fantastic. Great service, only one waitress but she did an excellent job. We had the duck terrine to start and the seafood mixed grill. Beautifully presented, really delicious and wonderfully cooked. Desserts were Iced raspberry ripple parfait and the sticky toffee pudding, rounding off the meal perfectly. This is a lovely place,...

Decided to go here for dinner as it is well recommended in the area. Really delighted with the service - all done by the lady owner - the door opened for us as we arrived, fresh cold water on the table immediately without having to ask - and other thoughtful service aspects through the meal. Food and drink arrived in... More

A really warm welcome awaits you as soon as you walk accross the threshold, the young lady who waited on us was from Derby, a great ambassador for the restuarant. As it was out of season you can understand why the atmosphere was a bit stilted but in my opinion you go to eat and converse with who you are... More

Their interesting home made bread was soon sitting in front of us along with the menus for food and wine, and our order taken within a few minutes. Hubby had the squid, which I have to say was...
