Stopped on way home for breakfast, which was fantastic, the eggs tasted like free range and all the rest of the meal was very tasty. The staff were friendly and efficient. Wish it was nearer home as I could visit more often.

What a beautiful place! Called in for a drink, ended up having some amazing food - not had food this good in quite a while! The hostess and owner was really friendly and advised us on some great local walks and highlights.
