Great homemade food and fantastic staff

The food in this quaint hotel is excellent. The menu has the right amount.of variation and despite having no childrens menu our waiter was very flexible.in helping out with our 3 young boys. Spoke with the owner- very friendly. Can only imagine how nice this location would be on a sunny day.

Fantastic service! We served breakfast for two mornings in a row. The staff was very friendly and even helped me to organize a small birthday surprise - an excellent chocolate cake and two glasses of white dry wine.

The proprietor also found a very good bottle of red for us. Most restaurants these days seem to have some sort of theme going on, so it's nice to find somewhere... More

Liked the service, food and wine. It was nice to meet the owner and he obviously cares for the restaurant and the hotel, which was nice to see. We had a lovely time. You must pop by if in the area and explore the menu and wine list.

There is a breakfast meeting at Trimstone at 7am on Thursday mornings when a group of business people get together to discuss topics that business people wish to discuss. At a recent meeting taxation was on the agenda. What's more a good cooked breakfast is also provided for a small fee. Go along and take a look.
