Visited with family and thoroughly enjoyed. The house wine was fantastic, the fish courses beautiful and the staff polite and friendly. Though the atmosphere is quite romantic, we didn't feel out of place as a table of five and enjoyed a chat with the proprietor after our meal. My only regret is that we live too far away to dine...

Lovely place to eat very friendly and accommodating. The sea bass in Pernod is particularly nice and although not a big meat eater, the fillet steaks are the best I have had. Never had a bad meal. Certainly my favourite place to eat. Highly recommended.

Not a problem and they as the steak were cooked to perfection. My partner had chicken and again that was... More

I visited this restaurant with my husband and another couple 28.10.14. It's only a small place, with a limited menu, but the food and service were excellent. It is an lovely place for a romantic meal with a loved one, as it is quite intimate and candle lit. 3 of us had starters, black pudding, mushrooms and mussels and they... More

Easily the best restaurant in North Yorkshire I have dined here dozens of times and have always enjoyed the food. VERY friendly staff. Easy to see when the Owner runs the place.
