Dined here as guests of locals in February 2013. Having been years ago and enjoyed, the evening was a flop. Charming but incompetent service, slow delivery of meals, poor food and one case of severe food poisoning (the most terribly cooked moules I have ever had) made for embarrassment for our hosts. Their view was that "the place must have changed hands". Enough said!

The perfect place for lunch, lovely setting in amongst the trees, fab menu - the salads are a must. To add to all of this we had the most delightful waiter, sorry I can't remember your name but I wished I could bring him home!

This place is not set for repeat customers. Long waits for drink orders and food and a careless attitude by the staff.

This was truly lovely. As a foodie and a girl with a French background I adored this quaint little restaurant. It's dog friendly which was fantastic for my beagle. My boyfriend and I tried the tomato tarte which was decadent and the duck liver parfait which was equally delicious. Very satisfying !

Food was excellent with a mixture of traditional and modern dishes. We sat outside which was good bearing in mind the high temperatures. Very reasonably priced.
