Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. It's something most of our regulars don't get round to doing.. Hopefully you'll still be coming for another 40 years;)

This is a place you need to plan to visit as you are unlikely to get a table in peak season without a reservation. Varied menu, excellent food, a little pricey but worth it. Lovely atmosphere and equally enjoyable to stop in for a coffee...More
