Pancakes

Called in for drinks and was tempted by the food which was excellent especially the pancakes and the honey ,raisin and Madeira wine cake. Service was great. Everything was clean, even the loo's.

This is an excellent restaurant which we go to every day of our stay. The staff welcome you as old friends and the food is out of this world. We would never go anywhere else.

We have walk by here numerous times over the years and wish we had ventured in before. The food was excellent, nicely cooked and well presented with a very good level of service and price. We will be back.

We have dined at this restaurant many times over the past years. Tony, his son and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. The food is good, freshly prepared and served with a smile. This restaurant, although slightly off the beaten track is well worth a visit.

This was one of our favourite restaurants but we visited this year and it was not so good. We ordered the seafood mixed grill for 2 persons. The fish was overcooked and dry and the salad was not as fresh as it should have been. The owner said that when the cook is busy the fish can be left under... More
