Just excellent can't wait to go back, my friends also enjoyed the meals, highly recommended.

Lots of well presented meals and as said before no hassle from staff, the table is yours for the night

Having passed this place many times and promised ourselves we'd visit we did just that the other day. No booking, just turning up. It nearly backfired as although it was mid-week the restaurant areas were fully booked. We managed to squeeze into the last table by the public bar. The place is small but does have lots of character and some interesting bric-a brac around the place. It was nice to sit and listen to locals talking about their runner beans and walking adventures rather than the idiotic chat about football, facebook and fashion (you can tell how old I am). The food was good and service friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal despite the squashed surroundings. We will go back, booking in advance next time, to sample some more of their menu.

As we were visiting the area,based on on- line reviews and a personal one from a local ,we tried and were not disappointed.
It was lunch time and not particularly busy .The ambience was immediate and completely unexpected after the exterior view.The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive.The food was excellent.My wife ,who is often disappointed with meals when we eat out,was very impressed and even had a dessert.The Staff of Life is a little treasure.We only wish it was nearer home.

We called at this restaurant on spec on Saturday 20th April in the evening. The place was quite full, but we were quickly found a table whilst ordering drinks. The menu was quite varied, including a vegetarian selection which was essential for my wife. Service was very friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. It deserves it's rating as the best in the area. The only small criticism I would make is that it would be better if the staff took first orders at the tables rather than at the bar. They were happy to take additional drinks and dessert orders at the tables.

Second visit here and I am always encouraged by the specials on offer and the variety.. The HAke with Chorizo was particularly excellent. Serves a lovely selction of draught beers and has a reasonably priced wine list..
Some of the mains and specials seem a little overpriced especially when you take into account its not really a full service restaurant.. (Which seemed to confuse quite a few diners I noticed who sat at the table for a while before working out you have to go to the bar to order - I'm sure theres a logical reason behind this but all I saw was the bar staff doing nothing - why cant they at least check on the tables etc).
But the quality of the food is quite good to very good and that's what makes this a good choice along with the constantly changing specials board and the local ingredients.
