Lovely garden outlook but could get quite hot in warmer weather sitting outside. Had a delightful meal of salmon Quinelle and Beef Burgundy washed down with coffee. Wine is available and a reasonable selection.

Great restaurant if you are after a quieter meal. Take a seat outdoors and soak up the sunshine in the garden setting. Ticks all the boxes for food and service with friendly staff and plenty of food choices.
