After a trip with disappointment after disappointment we finally found somewhere serving great food. The lamb was delicous, as you would expect in this area. We all thoroughly enjoyed all 3 courses and the wine.
The decor and ambience was great (although when we were there on a Tuesday night all of the couples dining appeared not be talking at all so it was just the 4 of us and a baby who could be heard by everyone!). Service was fantastic, particularly since it was just one lad on his own.
This is definitely my type of restaurant / bar, cosy and simple yet quirky and interesting. The chefs appear to be passionate and this is reflected in the food.
The value was great too.
Loved the look of the bar upstairs too and if I am ever back on a more sociable night then would definitely pay a visit.
This is such a relief to be writing a positive review having just written 2 terrible ones.
Well done, really enjoyable evening (even with agitated baby)!!

Lovely, welcoming restaurant with excellent food and service.

Sat in a cosy section of the restaurant we were served by excellent waiters who made sure we enjoyed our experience. The food was great and for the set menu price of £17.95 we weren't expecting such good quality. The food was immaculately presented and tasted even better.

There were nice little lanterns placed out on the road up to the entrance to welcome guests which was one of the many examples of where the owners have thought about how to make the place unique.

Lives up to the great reviews on tripadvisor.

This was the second time that me and my partner have visited this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The set menu for £17.95 is great value and there is a great selection of starters, mains and desserts. There really is something to suit all tastes. When we were in the restaurant a couple did come in and only ordered a main and dessert. They were disappointed that the cost of their meal was more expensive because they did not order a starter which meant that they did not qualify for the set price. So be warned to order a starter too!!
