Amazing service as soon as we walked in, friendly staff and the food was amazing! Could not fault! We only found this place whilst walking towards the town it’s not sign posted so was a hidden gem. Defiantly recommend this place and will be returning.

A super place to eat. Food was fabulous and service was friendly. Loved the meatballs and the baked mushroom also the lamb lollipops were amazing. Wicked Wolf gin was an extremely enjoyable addition to the meal. Very popular so you need to book. Highly recommended.
