Thank you very much for your uplifting comment Elizabeth. If you dined on Sunday we were very busy due to non booking large parties which stretched us. I am so pleased you were accommodated and things were to your satisfaction. We hope you visit again,...More

There was a nice atmosphere here. Nice place to sit outside. I had mouse mariniere and whilst the sauce was good it was clear that the mussels were not freshly cooked. This was a shame as they tasted good but the texture was overcooked. Quite...More
