The owners work in the kitchen so he has a stake in making you happy. This is a big city restaurant in a small town, reflecting the owners' background in high end restaurants in Toronto and Vancouver. They are committed to using local produce and even grown some of their own vegetables! Alas, no lunches yet but maybe someday.

Fellow foodies, or to everyone and anyone looking for a truely authentic and delicous dining experience, this is the place that serves exactly that and much more! From the moment you arrive the essence of local culture and hints of rustic appeal and detail greet you offering both a sense of elegance and homelyness, which is then followed with a mouth watering aroma and the warm atmosphere of the genuine smiles of the knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff, that is goldened by a pleasant visit or wave from the head chef who truely puts his heart and soul into ensuring what you order is above and beyond just font on a menu! Your taste buds will thank you, your spirit will entice you to return and ladies(or guys) if the old saying is true, this is the place to find a way to your mans heart ;-) Cheers! ~ Kaela .V.

The Combine truly captured our attention then it captured our hearts.

Last summer it caught our eye and we left with an excitement we had yet to feel from a local restaurant in Norfolk and very few restaurants that we have travelled to hold up to this same feel.

Each visit we are allowed to see into the true creativity behind the masterminds of The Combine. Every detail is thoroughly crafted out and done with passion.

My take. The Combine is a showpiece of the local bounty. There is something magically nostalgic about sitting enjoying the company of loved ones watching out the restaurant window. You will see baskets of fresh produce being brought in from The Combines own garden. They truly care for each friend who comes through their welcoming door. What I also adore is the care they have for food artisans and partnerships that are their neighbours.

You leave not only with a delicious meal but a memorable experience. Yes, you will call a friend and share that memory and I'm sure you will tell them go visit!

Cheers Friends,

J and J

We recently went to the combine for valentines dinner. We heard great things so we decided to go. The building was beautiful and had an ambiance about it.
The food was terrible. My husband ordered surf and turf and was told after he ordered the lobster tail was unavailable and would be served with scallops instead. He received two very small scallops in place of a lobster tail!
I had the grilled prawns with capellini which was flavorless, cold and over priced.
The food was over priced and did not live up to its price
We were seated so close to the couple beside us we were practically on their lap
The waitress rested her bum on our table every time she visited the neighboring table
We were extremely disappointed
