Enjoyed a fantastic meal for 2. Great choice and very healthy portion sizes. Food was hot, even down even through to the end. We could only manage 2 courses. Well worth a visit and we will certainly go back, even just to sample the desserts!

The food was a delight and, in particular, the sea bass was the best I have ever had. The starters were an excellent taster for what was to come and we rounded off with a delightful... More

The staff are very friendly and attentive, especially if you have any dietary requirements. There is usually a good veggie option and everything seems seasonal and fresh.... More
