Ate here 3 years ago & enjoyed the experience so decided to re visit. Our experience was just as good - efficient service, good food (set menu) and cosy ambience. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Pleasant decor & ambience. Small family run place, good service. Food good quality & well presented. Good choice of traditional & other dishes. Didn't get 5* because it is a bit pricey. However worth a look for well cooked traditional local specialities.
