Lovely place to have dinner. The food was fabulous, service was great & the wine was delicious. Only downside it was very hot inside that we had to go out into the cafe garden area.

Very good meal at a reasonable price a place I have always enjoyed visiting. The only minus for me is that it can be noisey when busy.

I have dinned here on several occasions and this restaurant would be my first choice for any occasion. Food is fine dinning and service is second to none. As for the ambiance and wine selection, well you need go no further!

Dinner on a Thursday night. One of the finest restaurant dinners I’ve enjoyed in the past year. Beef for main, perfectly cooked and an amazing assembly on the plate. Dessert the same. As you would expect at a winery, excellent wine selection also.
