What a hidden gem this restaurant is! The atmosphere, décor and general ambiance were delightful, the staff are attentive, polite and professional. An abundance of taste on the palate, delightfully served, what more could you ask for on Valentines Day! The photo during the meal and given to us before we left was a lovely touch, Thank you very much... More

A very friendly family run restaurant. The food is terrific and the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. We go there for most family celebrations large...30 plus and small. Exceptional service at all times.

I'd advise getting here now before the crowds start coming out the door - why isn't this place busier? Absolutely outstanding food in a simple, classic room with kind, attentive staff. Pork belly was meltingly tender and savoury, my partner had lamb shanks which looked gorgeous too, although the heartiness of the portions defeated him. That didn't stop us going... More
