Always consistent, always delicious; we're yet to have something 'bad' on the menu, and every time we go we try something new. With the highway it's now just over an hour from Kingston, so we'll be back more regularly for sure!More

Check with management. If it's available for you you'll have a memorable time and excellent meal . Don't forget the art and handicrafts museum upstairs for occasion marking gifts.
