The reviews we read led us to have very high expectations and we were not disappointed. Although we went at lunchtime and were the only people there, the atmosphere was very pleasant and the service and welcome was first rate. The wine was good and reasonably priced and the food was superb. We had the crab risotto and the crab... More

This place is not cheap by any means but if you are seeking a good night out with good food , then this is the place! The staff are charming, very helpful and very understanding if you need help with the restaurant's wide selection of food and wines.

Sigh, I hear our special gem of restaurant is up for sale. Not that Doug and Liz don't deserve a wonderful retirement but this restaurant is part of what makes Topsham special. How do you bottle the correct combination of great food and welcoming owners?

Hidden gem in Topsham. We ate lunch and liked the room which was bright and airy. Service was extremely friendly and the food was of a very high standard. Highly recommended.

Oh my goodness, what a fabulous place. Lots of local produce perfectly cooked - I had cheese soufflé starter, turbot main and pear tatin dessert and it was all faultless. A small restaurant so time for friendly service without any stuffiness and time to chat with the lovely owners.

The food is excellent and the staff very friendly. I had the crab risotto to start which was the best I have ever tasted. The fillet steak was excellent and the wine excellent. It is a small restaurant so you need to book. Super for a special event. The tables are of necessity a little close together but still had... More

The atmosphere and the service was great. It feel like being to someones home. Our english friends were very satisfied with the food, which is very brittish but with style. If you are looking for french food its not the most perfect place to visit.
