We decided to have lunch here today. We started with melted Camembert, then one spaghetti with goats cheese and one bowl of mussels. Both were excellent. The staff were so cheery and helpful. Will go again and recommend.

Visited here on a Sunday, the sun was shining so we were able to sit outside. Food was delicious, a good range to cater for all tastes and dietary requirements. Staff friendly and helpful. Just a few minutes walk from town, in a quiet location.
