A lovely little place with great service and smiles everywhere. Nice food but maybe a little overpriced for what was on offer

Had dinner here on Sunday evening. I have to say that I can't remember eating better. Everything about this place is excellent. Service, atmosphere, food all brilliant and not too expensive. We will definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone.
