We had a great evening with excellent food and the Owner/Chef (Fred) made us feel very welcome. As well as cooking the food, Fred even takes time to come out into the restaurant... More

You dont get rated this highly without attention to detail and dedication to your craft. Menu is varied and imaginitive with a set menu or a la carte. We had from both with my partner... More

Once again Fred and Mary excelled themselves on our two visits during our holiday. Top class food and enjoyment. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
