Have eaten here a few times, being from the area I’m lucky enough to have the opportunity to return to desire kitchen, the food is lovely. And I like the layout how it’s almost like you have your own private area. Highly recommended

We were a group of 20 for soup sandwiches and apple tart/choc cake. The food was absolutely delicious and the manager & staff so helpful and accommodating in this charming restaurant.
