“will keep going back”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

lovely homely friendly bistro. only a few tables and spaced nicely so doesn't feel overcrowded. You are not rushed, your table is yours for the night. other half had a big smile on his face all the way through eating the smoked haddock chowder, scallops were cooked to perfection. had a lovely evening and booked for the next next visit while we were there.
beware though so nice and so popular with locals that you may have to book a month in advance. have paid twice as much for meals that were not half as good as we had here
thank you for a lovely evening Hazel and Gordon

“jewel of a restaurant”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Congratulations to Hazel & Gordon for dishing up one of the best quality & value for money restaurants in the whole of the UK. Our main venison dishes were cooked to a tee. Service was friendly, attentive and informative as regards choice of dishes. It's no coincidence that reviewers are united in giving high praise to this bistro ---------- no hesitation in recommending & will be back--------JCM

“Great food, great value.”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Wonderful food, freshly cooked to order. Decent wines at reasonable prices. Don't go here if you want a quiet intimate meal for two - every word can be overheard!

Thank you for your review on our great food we cannot understand your comments on every word can be overheard. Our tables are more spaced apart than most restaurants and we play music at all times. You booked in at 6.15 and therefor were the first in and any restaurant is quiet at this time. Why you assume anybody would want to eavesdrop on your conversation is baffling.
