Four of us booked following a recommendation and we enjoyed our visit. The menu offered a fixed price and an A la Carte option. Between us we chose from both and the choice was reasonable but not large. The quality was very good and the menu was explained thoroughly by our waitress. A good choice of beers and wines were...

The christmas menu was excellent. Great meat. :-) Nice appetizers and dessert too. Good children's menu. One minus. The wine could be served earlier.

We chose the Fixed Price menu and were really impressed with the variety and quality of food. There is a great children's menu too, which was excellent...not the usual fish fingers and chips! The service was friendly and very helpful. The restaurant was full and the majority of customers were locals, which gave a less touristy feel .It's small, family... More

This is a tough one. The food is great...the staff very friendly. ..The prices reasonable. .. I want to give them 5 stars but the service is unreasonably slow. 1 hour wait for starters.. another hour's wait for the main...we didn't have desert because it was too late. The food here is by far the best we found in a... More

A little out of the main centre. South east near St Magdalen's Church. Small but very good. Family run with great atmosphere. It seemed to be frequented by lots of the local people, so I always think that is a good sign. Food is freshly cooked and service is warm and friendly. Well priced and a relaxed atmosphere. We went... More

Visited this lovely restaurant back in February and had a fantastic meal. Decided to rerun and were not disappointed. The owner Sylvia is so friendly and welcoming as if you were in her home. Normally her daughter is the chef but is on maternity leave as she is having twins very soon. Do not be alarmed they have a replacement... More
