Description: A welcoming restaurant and bar in the middle of the woods. Food is mainly wild game, rich and tasty. Log fires and wood burning stoves. There is no type of cuisine in your list to describe the type of food. 'Artisan' or 'Rustic' springs to mind. Perhaps you should add them to the list.
