I've been twice before, this visit was particularly enjoyable. Scallops to start and wild boar ravioli, both excellent. The staff were welcoming, friendly and professional. Great value for money. Best place I've eaten for a good while.

The adults didn't have a start but the children shared potato skins. These were cooked so well that I might order them next time and this would be a first... More

We celebrated at our favourite restaurant with 11 members of our family and had a fabulous meal as usual. No fuss or singing but a candle in his dessert.
