We live in the village and treat ourselves to breakfast at the Bistro on a frequent basis. It's always freshly cooked- the special Brunch on a Saturday is great and the coffee excellent. Then, there's Friday night pizza and special chef's nights on some Saturdays....More

What a lovely little restaurant. We visited back in August and were lucky enough to be there for pizza night. The outdoor pizza oven is brilliant! The staff are all really friendly and there was a real buzz amongst all of the diners

A very unusual experience in the friendly bar. You can drop in for coffee, drinks, or a meal. They even take orders for morning coffee and deliver it to you train

Well worth a visit if your staying or passing through. The freshly cooked pizzas are to die for and the staff were very friendly and made to feel very at home. Just make sure you book a table as it fills up very quickly.

Have been having my bacon hits at the bistro, having walked there and back. Sadly this will be my last visit as I am finding the long haul flight from NZ too much.
