“Really nice food and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Nice restaurant with great service. Had a nice steak with a lovely bottle of Rioja. Followed this with biscuits and cheese. Services was good and they were very helpful. Nice old building with character too.

“Won't return”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

The local was "out" of meatloaf at 6:30. I ordered two appetizers as my dinner that were served at the same time at husband's soup so I was finished before his entree. Bread was mot available -had to wait for it to come. Out of the oven. Upstairs restroom was not well equipped. Overall service was slow. Had to ask for water refill.

“Excellent Food but Slow Service”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We've eaten here a number of times and the food is always exceptional. The staff is very friendly but they must be short staffed as the service is consistently slow. So, if you are not in a rush and looking for an exceptional meal, this is the place.
