The manageress was very pleasant and, despite having rmany reservations on a Friday evening, she fitted us in. We were not rushed and the service was very good. We enjoyed the food, including a plate of mussels cooked in cream.

We ate here on the recommendation of our B&B host, and were pleasantly surprised at the great decor and delicious food. I don't normally like to eat in hotels, but this surprised me. Well worth a visit.
