This restaurant has just been taken over by new owners. We decided to have a meal out for my husband's birthday, the food was very tasty and beautifully served. What a change to be served fresh food, nicely cooked and with the added touch explaining where it is sourced. Good luck to the owners we wish them every success in... More

The restaurant has recently been taken over by a lovely young couple called Andrew and Karen who run the kitchen and front of house.

===Neo== In my quest to do new things this year I’ve been going to restaurants I’ve never been to before. I’ve also been shaking things up by looking for a new job.

This restaurant is housed in an old wood pannelled building that has a very cosy atmosphere to it. The food is excellent. When we went there we had an amuse-gueule made from wild mushrooms, then we took the haggis and potatoes starter. It sounds ordinary, but it was actually excellent, although perhaps very slighly over peppered (a question of taste).... More
