We actually spent two nights at this place. Very friendly staff and several very nice dishes. Meat is definitely better than fish. Great desserts ☺

We were greeted very warmly although there was no one else dining. Inside is simple but elegant and great chocolate cake and potato chippies. Very quick service. A lovely find.

Ambience is casual yet very attentively executed, not overdone, comfortable. Food was good though not exceptional. Beverage selection was very good. Location is well suited to post-prandial ambling.

The reason I booked was due to the menu offering a lot of gluten free options and all sauces made without flour. As a coeliac I was excited to be able to have a sauce on my meal! I was delighted to find... More
