This was recommended to us by our hosts at the B&B we were staying at and they were right on the mark. Our meals were great, service was good/ Even though the place was very busy there was no excessive waiting. Easy parking across the street.

From the moment we walked in the door we knew our meal was going to be special. The welcoming greeting, friendly and efficiwnt service the staff deliver is top class. We had a variety of starters, main courses and deserts, each and every plate was perfectly cooked and presented. Great value for money, will definitely be back.
