The Raspberry Rhubarb pie is outstanding! I also had the smoked trout sandwich with kettle chips. All was great! Once we were seated, service was fairly swift. The server was great, despite being swamped.

The group would easily fit in the restaurant but it would probably be helpful to make sure the restaurant knows you are coming in advance and it probably would be great if you didn't pick a peak time of day.
