We have been going to this restaurant for christmas for the last 10 years and also inbetween. They are the most lovely, friendly and kind couple you could ever meet. The food is fantastic and service perfect. You could never find as good quality for the price anywhere else.

New to the area, we stumbled upon this restaurant by chance, and on speaking to friends and neighbours decided we had to try it for ourselves. It's basic and a little dated decor wise, but immaculate, and the food is phenomenal, the wine a treat, and the price is definitely right!

The owners are extremely helpful and friendly but not over the top. The decor is a bit dated but the atmosphere is always... More

First visit to the restaurant as recommended by a friend and will be going back again for sure. Family run who are very attentive and friendly, service is impeccable. Food is exquisite, not the largest of menu's but oozes flavour and presentation. Highly recommend the scallops and T-bone veal. Also has specials board and if you can manage a dessert,... More
