Premises were cold on arrival - but quickly rectified by owner ( it was pretty much the end of the season - with only ourselves and one other table in use that evening), Very friendly and informative owner, clearly aiming to enhance the premises for next season. Food freshly cooked with good selection of drinks.

We ate here twice in three days both in the early afternoon. The owner was really friendly and helpful nod the food was hot and fresh. The cottage pie was excellent. Nothing too much trouble as we departed from the menu and substituted items. Good value.

This is a small family-run restaurant with a limited menu, but a very good one. It's also an imaginative one and the accompanying homemade cakes and desserts are absolutely excellent.
