This restaurant has good food and a nice dining room with good service. They are gluten free, I am a bread fan. They seemed to be quite busy and I recommend getting reservations.

Fabulous cozy restaurant with second to none service. The food is delicious and guaranteed gluten free. If you haven't had their sticky toffee pudding well you haven't had the best pudding ever!!! I cannot praise the food or people here enough. It's absolutely amazing.

I stay two nights at this motel recently. As it was at the end of the summer season, the restaurant was closed down. I thought my motel room was over priced. The room was clean with a good bathroom. However, it had two double beds which made the room a little squashed. There was no table and chairs. Just a... More

OK, we wanted to have a little dinner above average, and based on comments on Tripadvisor we made a reservation (we stayed in the hotel). We took chowder and crab cakes as a starter, and it was a good start. Next were a perfectly prepared AAA steak, and a beautifully grilled halibut steak. The wine was a regional one (Tidal... More

Had the most delicious lobster dinner. Chose this place because of its vegetarian options for my daughter. Desserts were out of this world!

We sat outside on the porch. It was a beautiful evening and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious and high quality.
