Jim had a lobster roll (a bit skimpy on the lobster) and I had excellent fried calms...tender with capers in the tartar sauce. The decor was intriguing: the recreation of the Henley family. There is a pub section as well as a formal dining room.

After many hours drive, we find this restaurant. It is nice and historical pictures of the area. It looks like a family restaurant, not to big but with nice atmosphere. Service is good and meal was excellent.

Random stop enroute to Cape Breton. Totally awesome food, service and view. I tried the Maple Curry Penne - 5 stars. Also had lovely Craft beer, Oyster Stout - better than Guinness. Welsh touch is unique.

Based on the reviews I was expecting much more. We drove an hour out of our way to come for lunch. I had the fish tacos which were mediocre at best- flour tortilla with dry seasoned fish. There was no real kick of flavour that...More
