My first visit here and what a little gem! Excellent food, good service and friendly staff. It is a bit "tardis-like" as although it looks small, once you enter it is surprisingly spacious. gets busy though.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch, so fresh and tasty, a must visit for anyone visiting Ashbourne. Service friendly and helpful, gets very busy as so popular, even on a week day.
