Hazel is the perfect hostess and gives everyone a friendly welcome. Gordon cooks what can probably be described as the very, very best of home cooked food. I... More

Simply one of my favourite places, lovely home cooked food and amazing puddings with friendly personal service - maybe I should keep it secret!

This restaurant is a little gem! I have been to this restaurant twice, and both times I have never been disappointed! Fresh produce, beautifully cooked and well presented, and by the way tastes fantastic. The Scallops are amazing, and if you like fish, then you won't be disappointed ! I think it's great that you can order different portions of... More
