Tonight we had a most satisfying meal in this very good restaurant As it was a Tuesday at six thirty we had no problem booking a table for two at short notice. We had a choice of the A la Carte , the Early Bird or a special tasting menu. We settled for the latter and it proved an excellent... More

If you're in the area you must eat here. It's a very small and quaint restaurant but the food is wonderful. Great choice and quick service.

Dined here with the family recently and had a wonderful meal. From the warm welcome when we came in (including from chef Stanley), to the pleasant way the staff interacted with us and the children to the very good food our meal was a delight. The restaurant lends itself more to winter dining as it's very cosy. It was busy... More

There was a very good choice of dishes and every body in our party enjoyed what they had chosen. We took advantage of the early bird menu so it was very reasonable too. The vegetables were cooked exactly to my liking - I'm very particular about vegetables!

A large party filled the Resturant . Hospitable welcome. Perfect service for a very large group. Extensive menu & beautifully presented food. But best of all the staff were very willing to talk about the interesting historical area. Thank you all concerned.

What a friendly place to eat. We went as part of a large family party and I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the attentive and professional staff. A real gem and one to visit. I can highly recommend the White fish and sweet corn chowder and the duck with cherries. Really tasty !
