This restaurant was recommended to us and on a damp night we went along and had a very good meal in what seemed like a home, with the wallpaper and furnishings. The staff were very good and the pianist was a novelty for us.

We had Sunday lunch here, excellent food in a really nice athmosphere. We ate pancakes with salmon as a starter and lamb pelmenis as main course, both were excellent. Homebaked bread was also delicious. Friendly staff!
