I don't know what to answer to this nasty person who took time to place such a denigration. I suspect a smear tactic!

The vegetables are the stars of the show. The friendly chatty owner runs this simple canteen style eaterie offering just a handful of mains and a couple of desserts. Choose perhaps from lamb, salmon or pork, well cooked and served in a bowl of the...More
