What a delightful place to have a romantic meal! We managed to book for this very popular Restaurant for 14thFebruery. We were greeted with a perfectly chilled champagne and Hors d'ouvres. Each course was fantastic. The shared dessert platter was fabulous. Thanks Beb and Eric.

We had a very nice meal here last night. The scallops were beautiful and the black pudding starter was superb. We had the beef Wellington and the pork for our mains and both were good. Not enough room for pudding. Service was excellent. We will return.

My husband and I visited this restaurant in January 2015. My first thought upon its appearance; it is a lovely little quaint restaurant, very friendly and helpful staff. The menu looks fab and mouth watering. We had a lovely little table for two. The big mirror on the back wall makes the small restaurant look twice as big! The food... More
