Apparently this restaurant has been running for years. Wish I'd found it sooner. Great food, really great staff, very friendly, very helpful. A really nice and relaxed environment. This is also a hotel...... And breakfast was awesome.

We had a group for Dinner and the service and food was excellent . Mixed starters and mains between us but overall a great experience, well catered for in a modern environment . Busy enough to create a good ambience and atmosphere for a midweek night.
