We ate there for an anniversary celebration. High end menu and warm service. Recommend reservations as it is small and busy. Manager offered Irish coffee on the house for our celebration. We went back a second night and we were not disappointed.

Was there twice and to be honest I think it's overpriced for medium quality food. The creamery across the road is much better as its cheaper and better quality food.

I visited this restaurant twice during the week 1st to 8th August. On the first occasion which was Monday the 3rd I found the Manager was a little flustered but this was at the end of a very busy week-end and they were out of some of the fish dishes. My sister and I shared a fish tapas platter for... More
