We went with a party of 6 on a Friday night, 4 adults and two children. Unfortunately no child friendly options on the menu. Food was good, atmosphere is inviting, however the service was slow and basic (what is the point of having food but no cutlery?). BYO is available but wine glasses are unsuitable for good quality wine - one patron has been known for bringing own wine glasses.

We were recommended to dine here and were not disappointed. The service was friendly and helpful, the manager made us very welcome and helped us chose from the enticing menu offerings. My wife had an Asian chicken dish and I had pork belly which was very good. Nice atmosphere and decoration. It is part of the bookshop on the high street. Wish we had gone back to sample other items on the menu but lack of time prevented this.Go, you wont be disappointed.

Excellent breakfast, fantastic pancakes! The view from the top was amazing also, overlooking the harbour.

Cosy venue with good food. Nice change from the usual fare available along the peninsula. The quality of the food is very good.

We were here on a cold evening and there was a lovely fire burning. The food was very good, and although we would have liked more of a choice for the starters they gladly split the main course asian duck risotto into two for us. Well worth it, as it was an excellent dish. The atmosphere is very welcoming, and we loved that we could see straight into the kitchen, which is across the corridor with one wall of windows. They have a beautiful outdoor section which we will certainly be back to try out when the weather is warmer.
