Visiting the area for the weekend we asked our B&B host to recommend somewhere to eat with decent vegetarian options for my friend. Butterflies Bar & Kitchen was an excellent recommendation.

Nice food but was spoilt by frozen sprouts and aunt Bessie's Yorkshires. Chairs were a bit low down to the height of table. Puddings were lovely and very well presented but been here twice and both times they have been running out of puddings resulting in heated discussion who's going to have the last fudge cake! Long wait between courses... More
