As a family we've been visiting Sha-Roe bistro for many years and it's always been such a treat with delicious food and wonderful service. Booking is essential as it is a small but immensely popular restaurant and not open every day. The food is French cuisine but made with fresh local ingredients some highlights of our recent meal there was... More

Very friendly and attentive staff who were more than happy to recommend dishes and suggestions. I liked that where they source their meat/cheese etc is listed on the menu. We sampled most of the menu between... More
