Been here many times over a quite a few years. Allways had a lovey meal. In the winter months they have a fireplace. We normally eat here on special occasions but know people who eat here at least once a week.

A varied menu and plenty to choose from, including local and more "international" dishes. Definitely give it a try if you like rabbit!
