“Excellent tasting food, portions could be larger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2011

We held a committee Christmas meal here and had a pre-set menu. I am not sure if that made a difference.
I can say that the place has a good atmosphere and it looked as though the owner/manager was present and making sure that everything was right for every person. That personal touch was very noticeable. Our food was excellent and I was jealous at the huge bowl of muscles my colleague had chosen over choice of soup. All of the food was very tasty and well prepared. I personally would have liked a larger main course. I am not a huge fan of the well decorated and presented plate that made you wish it was twice the portion. But don't let my greed put you off, for the area, I think you would find this a worthy place to eat where great care is taken to get everything right.

“Really friendly, great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2011

As the name suggests, this restaurant is a converted school. The owner works in the restaurant and his wife is the chef. They are very welcoming and the service is efficient. The food we had was great and another couple were on their third visit in a few days! Do phone to check they are open as the website can be misleading - we had to go twice before we got in but it was well worth the effort.
