Quaint little restaurant tucked off the main road to Canterbury. We went for lunch on a Saturday. Very welcoming, unpretentious fine dining. Excellent food, served by friendly staff who are happy to explain the menus and make suggestions- house Sauvignon was a great accompaniment too.

I hadn't heard of this restaurant until I read the comments so at the last minute booked a table for our anniversary and found all the positive comments true. A menu with a great range of choice, with a couple of appetisers thrown in made this restaurant feel special alongside friendly, pleasant and excellent service within a cosy environment -... More

We go here once a year to celebrate our wedding anniversary and I can honestly say that we have never been let down. The staff are super friendly and efficient and the food is out of this world.
