Amazing food, great wine. Lovely. The mussel chowder was great, loved the addition of dill, really made it fresh and yummy. My partner had the blue cheese souffle, to die for.

“disappointing”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We had high hopes for this highly rated restaurant but were not impressed at all. The service was indifferent and the food unexceptional. We started with home made bread with oil and vinegar for dipping (4 pieces $10) The bread was rubbery with a soft crust though the balsamic and oil were good quality. The mussel chowder was unpleasantly bland. The shrimp tempura was good with a nice light batter and tasty dipping sauce but the asian slaw was overloaded with ginger. We decided to forgo dessert.

“Traminer and Baked Alaska!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Stopped here for a tasting and afternoon tea. Food sublime and wines all very nice. Very nice place to chill out. Outside you could lounge in a bean bag with a cheese platter and wine and enjoy the sunshine. Well worth a stop.

A lovely place for lunch with a warm fire and great food. The wine selection is fab too! I had the beef salad and it was delicious.
