We visited this place last week after a tour of the ghost town. We were only in the area a few hours, and our tour 'guide' half offered for us to have tea at their café after we had walked up the historic town, however I wanted to see what else the small village had to offer, and was so glad I did.
We entered this place and initially sat on the wooden terrace, overlooking the village road. However the sun was setting and it began to get a little cold, so we only managed to stay out there a few minutes before we were offered to sit indoors.
We walked in and I just got such a homely feeling. We sat right opposite an open fire, which was occasionally being poked and added more logs to. The setting was lovely - very traditional and cosy, there were cute little touches (such as the little gaps in the walls which they filled with a single tea-light). There were some old hangings on the wall (old dresses etc) which I'm sure would have a bit of history behind them.
We were given a (free) starter of olive oil and crumbled cheese - if I'm honest I wouldn't rate this too high, but it was free so I can't complain.
For the main I ordered hot chilli chicken (I think?) with creamy garlic mash and veg. It was delicious. The mash was to die for. The oil/sauce that the chicken was cooked in, I couldn't get enough of. I could have quite happily sat with a spoon at the end and ate the rest that I had no food to 'mop' up with!
The staff were a pleasure - not in your face, left you be and were smiley.
It must be a popular place because whilst we were eating, a waiter came and put paper reservations on every table (inc ours) of customers that were due that night, so I think we hit it lucky with what time we came. If we left it any later I think we would not have got a table.
I loved the fact that it had an open fire - If I ever lived there I could imagine myself going there for lots of wintery celebrations around Christmas time!
