Friendly staff and good service count for a lot and this restaurant has both. The food is simple but palatable. The selection of wine by the glass is good. Being a combined bar/restaurant arrangement there us nothing particularly sophisticated about the surroundings. If you want a casual meal in a relaxed environment then this will do the job well.

Just returned from a great night. Eleven of us booked and the meals all came out reasonably together. The service was as superb as the food. By the time we got to the dessert, most of us were too full to order, so we had several dishes to taste and share. Very imaginative and DEFINITELY home cooked. Loved the ginger ice cream with the lemon tart.

The wine was delightful.......which resulted in many trips to the loo! Very clean with individual terry hand towels. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. Despite the fact that I do not like the layout or the decor I am still sufficiently impressed to award 5 stars.

We stopped in here for a drink and enjoy our cold beers by the cozy fire. This place had a quite a few good beers on tap and a nice cozy fire by which we could sit and enjoy our beers. We can't speak for the food, since we didn't eat here, but we enjoy the cozy atmosphere and our beers!
