“A smile that has to be returned”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We dropped in for breakfast having had a shocking nights stay at a local motel. The waitress meet us with a smile and fantastic service. The meal was full of falvour and beautifully presented. We left town contented travellers despite our night.

“Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

it's not often you find a restaraunt you can go back to night after night but this is one. First night the chicken-crispy skin, moist on a manageable portion of great risotto, 2nd the Lamb beautifuly tender and finally the duck - wow. Good service and polite local wine list.
