Friendly service in this family run restaurant. Lovely food attractively presented and not overpriced. Everywhere scrupulously clean. Good to know we have somewhere reliable to eat when we next visit Sherborne. Looking forward to going again!

A real gem in Sherborne. I've visited in quieter mid week times and busier Saturday's and it's always been great. There's a great menu of fab meals and snacks ... the specials board is worth a serious look. Service is spot on. Efficient and helpful and appropriately friendly. Love it.

Thank Richard C
