I am vegetarian and finding somewhere with such tasty choices is a joy. It would be nice to think there meat-eaters could also appreciate the care in preparation and the quality of ingredients. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed

Hi, sorry, we're unable to take dogs. We do have a decking area and some people leave the dogs outside and book the table in the window where they can keep and eye on the dog. Hope this helps.
