EVERY SINGLE TIME we've been here, we've had an amazing experience. Awesome food prepared by a master chef who understands not only the magnificent preparation and presentation of a meal, but also the meticulous care of the people and community he serves. This is an amazing place for morning coffee, a wonderful lunch, and/or a special dinner. If you want... More

I've recently become vegan, though I've been leaning that way for several years and have found it BEYOND difficult to find restaurants that are willing, and perhaps more importantly ABLE, to execute something more creative than a vegetable stir fry let alone actually have a FULL vegan menu! Joy, joy, joy! And, the food's not just good for vegans, my... More

Luckily we weren't in a hurry. Restaurant had been recommended. Took 20 minutes to get a glass of wine and as we were only having a main course that took 25 minutes, it was lucky we hadn't ordered a starter. The server was very pleasant and apologised for the delay and didn't charge us for the coffees. Our mains were... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Richys. I am sorry to read your headline and that you felt this summed up your experience with us. Having spoken to your server on the evening I believe there was a delay in getting your wine to you - a simple moment of forgetfulness to which he apologized and offered complementary... More

i honestly have only ever eaten breakfast and had coffee at this restaurant- but the food was excellent- everything is homemade and delicious, and reasonably priced. We were most recently there a few weeks ago- in January- and it was frigid temps outside- and the place was just FREEZING!!! They would benefit by some space radiators- and maybe a heavy... More

We visited at 3pm. The restaurant part wasn't really open until 5 so we sat in the cafe half. The waitress said that the same menu was available. Instead we ordered from the cafe menu as I liked the sound of the curry kebab and it was great. My wife's meal was perfectly cooked also. The wine was lovely. Overall... More

Just back from a family gingerbread house building session, expertly guided by Richy and Johanna. After a quick bite it was straight into the action and soon fabulous miniature houses with lots of icing decorations began to spring up, Great fun and excitement for young and not so young, and happy gingerbread families all round. Great evening, great team.
