Truly wonderful delicious food and wine, a wide choice from the menu for our family and friends to choose from. Although you cannot book a table in advance there is plenty of space with an excellent atmosphere and great service.

Fantastic start to a birthday weekend - service fab with lots of dishes to choose from. The food was perfectly cooked and we loved sitting outside for drinks before dinner. Always a favourite although a shame we have to drive so far
