Had to take half the sandwich home the staff kindly wrapped in foil for us. Would recommend anyone passing to call in as the atmosphere is great and... More

Love this place, I'm from the area but moved away, always come here for a visit when I am home. Beautiful, fresh food with a great variety. But pricey for lunch but always worth it :)

We were a large family party of 9. All of us, young and old, had a stunning meal. Starters were a meal in themselves, main courses were fantastic and those who took a dessert were very complementary of them. The staff were very attentive and the owners made a point of coming over to every table to enquire if all... More

We came across this restaurant by accident and what a great meal we had. The food was obviously made using fresh produce, the staff where very attentive and polite. My only gripe is there was a lack of choices for children.
