Visited having read the reviews and was not disappointed. Great food, local wine and really friendly staff. We had avocado prawns, garlic squid and carbonara, followed by one portion of caramel desert. All delicious, fresh and great value. Will visit again

We went to eat here but it was an empty property March 2017. It is possible that it might open later in the year but it did not look as if it was being refurbished.
