We ate here for the first time last night, and were very pleasantly surprised by what we found. We didnt really know what to expect as we hadnt done much research, but it definitely exceeded any expectations we did have.
The service was fantastic; very attentive waitress, and the couple who run it were very friendly and personable.
The decor is amazing - im a big fan of french shabby chic, and this encapsulates the whole look perfectly. With an open fire at one end of the restaurant too, its the perfect finishing touch. Theres lots to look at and even the opportunity to buy bits and pieces should you wish to copy the look at home!
The atmosphere is very relaxed and cosy - nice background music and background chatter from people sat in the 'bar' area.
And, most importantly, the food is fantastic. We had 3 courses each, which is a first, but we just couldnt resist ordering something for each course. There is the normal winter menu, along with different specials every day. The prices are very reasonable for the standard of food that is served - we couldnt fault any of it.
We will absolutely be returning, and look forward to better weather when we can take advantage of the lovely outside seating area! Fabulous! :)
