The dining room is beautiful and rustic, featuring a large dining area... More

One of the top spots in Cobourg for sure. Get great value for your hard earned money, but it is an expensive joint, but worth it.

So delish and the lamb was cooked to perfection. Service was professional and the wine list excellent. Everyone was happy with their food... More

The rooms here are very nice and quite romantic. Food is always superb. I have been here with just my husband and I have been here with 25 cadets. Always great ! The owners really put their care and love into the business.
