Went there August 2013. The service was good, and it was obvious that the cook loved his work, the food was great and freshly cooked, he even came out to chat to some of his regulars. I would go there again. I know that it is not in the same class as the 'posh' restaurants around, but then it does not pretend to be. It is a 'good value for your money' little restaurant.
