This is an excellent restaurant majoring on local produce at a very reasonable price for the quality of cooking. Had an excellent Monkfish with sauce Catalan. Not one to miss if you are in the area.

This restaurant serves interesting and good food. The service was reasonable, but perhaps an additional member of staff might have been preferable on the Saturday evening we ate at the restaurant. This restaurant offers a good and interesting menu. Too few vegetables were served, other...More

Seated and greeted by lovely friendly staff, excellent French menu. Frogs legs and snails to start, perfectly cooked pheasant with gorgeous creamy dauphinoise potatoes for main followed by excellent cheese board (room temperature not straight out of the fridge). Chef came out for a chat...More

There isn't an outdoor patio. There is a disabled ramp/pathway and I am sure your dog would be welcome there but not inside
