We had a most delicious meal at Powell House. We had the special of the evening, which was pulled lamb in pastry. It was really good and it was served by a very friendly waitress. The chocolate desert was amazing. A throughly enjoyable evening

Had a delightful meal and excellent service from Stacy and the owner of the restaurant. Pleasant surroundings but not too busy when we were there. Apparently very busy at the weekends.
