Having left our hotel in the village to search for a restaurant, we were fortunate indeed to stumble across this one. One of the best dinners we've ever enjoyed. Olives and beautifully warm, tasty bread were brought to our table unbidden. The crayfish and prawn cocktail was simply delicious and surprisingly imaginative in its choice of salad ingredients. To the main courses. My duck breast on red cabbage was memorably succulent and my partner's roast pork was wonderfully tasty. Many outlets try to serve food of this quality: this one is rare - for it succeeds. We both chose the same dessert: rhubarb cheesecake with home-made rhubarb ice-cream. It was simply heavenly: the rather inelegant, sharp fruit transformed into an intriguing, tempting dessert, with a subtle combination of fruit and creaminess. How I would love to sample it again! The restaurant was welcoming and beautifully decorated. The value was good, I thought, though we drank only mineral water. Wine (as always) would have pushed up the cost. A quite exceptional evening.

The food at this restaurant is consistantly good. It is a proper restaurant in traditional style with cloth tablecoths and napkins and they serve just baked homemade rolls and olives before you order.

We recommend the duck on red cabbage all the food comes beautifully presented in Michelin style and is perfect for special occasions or if you just want to impress.
