“A welcome addition.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We heard on the grapevine the there's good food to be had here. We went there to entertain old friends and what a fortunate choice.We were welcomed to a well set out dining area, offered the usual water, and wine list by an efficient waitress and left to our deliberations. The selection is quite small but caters for all tastes. Amongst the 4 of us we had 4 different mains which all received a big tick and only clean plates went back to the kitchen.Be warned - if you order deserts they are very (very) generous, one desert does two people.So, all in all ,well done Detour! We will be back.
