We went to the restaurant here for our wedding anniversary, having heard great reviews about it (we live nearby). On arrival we found a beautifully and tastefully restored house with welcoming open fires and friendly staff. The waitresses managed to be both efficient and take the time to chat and welcome us despite being extremely busy. We were invited into a sitting room and offered drinks and a look at the menu while we waited for our table (we were early and as I already said they were very busy), it was lovely and relaxing - just what we wanted for our anniversary. The food was excellent - scallops cooked to perfection! My husband had lamb for his main and it was, in his opinion, the best he has ever tasted!
We have friends staying with us next month and are already anticipating treating them (and ourselves) to Sunday lunch here! :)
Thanks Rosita and family for a wonderful evening!
