Totally Unexpected but Amazing!

We ended up here quite by chance but it couldn't have worked out better! My husband and I had a starter, main course and desert - something we don't often do but the food here was excellent. The restaurant was very busy and we had walked in off the street but were well accommodated downstairs... read more

Food was simply outstanding - we had duck and salmon mousse for starters and cod and trout for main. Would recommend each dish and the restaurant as a whole.

Been eating here for years and it never lets you down. The menus are varied, the cooking consistently good, the ambience relaxed and friendly, and the staff competent.

Nice little place that was happy to fit us in without a booking despite it being the start of dinner service. Extensive drinks menu and a good selection of cocktails. Food menu had a wide selection to choose from and not too expensive given the surroundings. The bar staff were extremely helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. Didn't think... More

There were 12 of us on a hen weekend and had prebooked the restaurant and chosen our meals. We had a room downstairs to ourselves which was really lovely. The staff were so friendly and literally couldn't do enough for us. The food was incredible, everything came out at the same time and each of us commented on how amazing... More

Fantastic evening has been had here thrice now and not once has it fallen short of expectations. Great atmosphere, a widely varied menu (each time I have visited it has been different, have visited three times in around 8 weeks) and the staff were first class. Attentive, polite and courteous and always accommodated for mine or another guests needs. Superb... More

Went to this charming little restaurant based on Tripadvisor review, and it didn't disappoint! Delicious food (I had a pizza and fried Brie salad, yum!), friendly service and awesome desserts! I liked it so much I went back the next night instead of looking for another restaurant. Highly recommended!

Loved the food, friendly service. Lots of English food has sauces I find, this was fresh a slight - salmon and glass noodles. Large portions, good price.
