We ate here on the recommendation of the hotel and found it to be a really good choice for interesting food at very good value prices. Definitely a good choice in Creston.

This is a family run reastuarant with friendly service and excellent food. The menu is wide and caters for all tastes. The quality of their offering is very high. The majority of the diners were locals which says it all

Service was excellent. I had the special of the day, which was a chicken wrap with the most amazing humus that they had made that day. My wife had a chicken sandwich which was also very good.

The food is always fresh, and served in a very tasteful manner. There is a good variety, with daily specials being one of my preferences. The dessert selection is not wide, but is a great way to end a delightful dinner.
