A menu with a great variety creates a problem choosing, but every time a lovely meal arrives. With a little break to finish the wine, there is always room for my favourite dessert - the strudel.
High screens between the tables, hand sanitiser on entry, and masks worn by all make the experience safe. With the gently attentive service, the experience matches the food - wonderful.

A lovely dinner.
Extensive wine list with some familiar names and interesting additions.
The duck with risotto was very good and well balanced. I was concerned the flavour of the IoW blue cheese may overpower the duck but it was spot on.
The waffle with strawberries was very good according to madam and even prompted a photo from her. Praise indeed.
