Lovely relaxed meal tasty food no fuss. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only disappointment was the fact the fire was not lit which would have added atmosphere and a welcome comfort.

We were walking about and we dislike eating where everyone else does. We spotted this place and got the last two seats for lunch. It only holds 18 people but has a tiny menu very well prepared.
