“High class restaurant in the high artic”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Unbeleivable quality, we had great food good vines and friendly service at this excellent reataurant. It is admirable how good standard they are able to keep there even when traffic is slow.
Many restaurants in big cities could learn from them!

“Comfort & good service in the hotel”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Enjoyed drinking cider, wine or other drinks, nibbling on hot chips or something more substantial, but with a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Must be really fantastic when the Blues Weekend is on!!
