On arrival we were warmly welcomed and invited to sit on the comfortable couch, have a drink and look through the days menu.... More

Quality of service was attentive but not obtrusive - staff were friendly and welcoming. I celebrated my 50th birthday here and it was an excellent choice for a special evening... More

had a really nice meal on our penultimate day of our holidays and celebrating a birthday to boot. food and wine were all good but the pork was very fatty and credit card machine wasn't working which made for an awkward dash for cash...
