One of he longest established restaurants in the village where the Dutch owner acts as Host, waiter and joke teller it attracts a clientele who return year after year. Gusts may have to be prepared to be relocated during their meal whilst the tables are re-arranged to accommodate the party of three who had only booked for two ! It adds to the atmosphere !
The food is fine, although I always complain that custard is not served with the Apple Pie and am usually told to bring my own !
Regulars are not offered a glass of complimentary port at the end of their meal though.They just have the full bottle placed before them. See you next Easter !

The owner is a very friendly guy, who talks and jokes with all the customers.,he seems to have a regular clientele,who enjoy the experience., the food and wine are a very good standard, his rabbit stew is legendary and his English fish ,chips and mushy peas are outstanding, well worth a visit,but you have to reserve.

A menu to suit all. Lots of references to "fish and chips " on T Advisor but there's lots more. The cod can be without batter, the chips swapped for potatoes and with the salad, a very healthy meal.
While the food is great and menu flexible, the ambience is what makes Happys unique. If you want a quiet evening fine. If you're feeling sociable yo7 might just be there til late meeting new friends.
Food, excellent service and atmosphere are magically pulled together by Libby, his wife and staff. Just goes to prove why you need to book in advance.... well in advance.
