Had a beautifully cooked Porterhouse. Cooked to perfection with local vegetables. Beautiful desert. Terrific service. Dined on a Monday. Took advice and booked. Luckily. Flat out at 7.15pm

Ended up here on Valentine's Day and although it was busy the food was excellent. The crayfish sold out really early and the fish of the day so felt sorry for later diners. So our trout was excellent and the chicken snitzel was very tender . The accompanying salads were well presented and fresh. A typical bistro setting. Nice to... More
