Absolutely loved this place. Staff are very friendly & you are made to feel very welcome. Great menu choice & credit where due to the chefs the food is first class. Atmosphere is very relaxing so would recommend for families, couples or friends. This place is a hidden treasure!! Our first visit, certainly won't be the last.
