Excellent food, amazing service!

Always first class, first visit in four years and once again it did not disappoint, excellent host and great food. Not the cheapest or quickest of places but such good food and just the place for that special occasion, we will certainly not leave it so long before our next visit.

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.

Once again food was of a standard that rates at the very top end of dining. I ordered the fillet steak and asked the owner if he could do me some king prawns to go with it "surf & turf". 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.
