We love this place. The food was tremendous and the portions are on the small side which I find perfect as you are never over-faced . My only negative is the service we had last night was functional but a trifle brisk - especially from...More

A bistro (small, inexpensive restaurant) that serves a small range of tasty starters/mains/desserts. We had the lunch menu which offered generous sized main dishes that were very tasty - for an astonishing £4.50. They also have a specials board and it was from this that my wife had mussels and chips. Friendly staff, great food, well positioned in the town and lovely clean washrooms! We've been before and will definitely go again. Finally, this place has owners that can make it work - well done to them!
