Attractive Inn with excellent food. Within walking distance of Stoberry House Bed and Breakfast. Wise to book as very busy.

Traditional atmosphere but so updated and comfortably appointed. Wonderful food. Not your typical fare. Friendly staff. Thought the calamari was delicious but overpriced for the small portion. Everything else was so spot on we ate here two nights in a row.
