Three of us had three great meals. Large portions at reasonable prices and top notch food. The place is small and has a super atmosphere. The service was super. Definitely a place to book as it is popular and with good reason.

Love this little restaurant. We have now visited 3 times in as many years and food has been very good on each occasion. Staff were very friendly and attentive, service was quick, but when we asked for a rest time before ordering dessert they were happy to accommodate this. The portions were very good and food was not overpriced. We... More

Here for a family meal, staff very attentive and food very nice, be aware they do serve large portions, so no room for puds on this occasion! The garlic mushrooms were lovely as was the chicken dish I ordered. Lovely atmosphere for both groups and couples attending for a special occasion. Would recommend.

I'd not even noticed the place was there and was chatting to a local in the pub opposite and he recommended it. I had a standard focaccia bread which was light as a feather, which was just as well as it was massive, and the 5 cheese ravioli in a prawn and oyster sauce with wild mushrooms. I would go... More
