Lovely little spot at bottom of hill. Very nice girl serving. Sat in the conservatory but could have sat beside a nice coal fire. Cakes were good and large jug of coffee was very good value.

Great atmosphere. Service was outstanding and the food was really good, too. All around pleasant experience, just remember it is BYOB here so plan for that! They even had some musical entertainment which made the night that much better.

After the irritation of trying to get served in the achingly pretentious Conor’s Bar a few metres away it was, and remains a total joy to stumble on this gem of a restaurant. The building is a teetering ramshackle eccentric road traffic incident of a...More
