“Really friendly, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

As the name suggests, this restaurant is a converted school. The owner works in the restaurant and his wife is the chef. They are very welcoming and the service is efficient. The food we had was great and another couple were on their third visit in a few days! Do phone to check they are open as the website can be misleading - we had to go twice before we got in but it was well worth the effort.
