You wouldn't look twice at this place from the outside, but it was recommended to us by friends. We'll now be back. Food was sensational and very reasonable for the quality. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable too. Book ahead at weekends

Fantastic all around restaurant. We had such a difficult time deciding on our meal as everything from the wine to the starters to the mains just sounded so appealing. Great ambiance on an otherwise ordinary Wednesday night in Macc. A bustling place with attentive wait...More

Staff were very accommodating for a last minute booking. We had a lovely time, small inside but I quite like the intimate atmosphere. We both had a starter and fillet steak, it never disappoints always cooked to perfection. Will visit again.

A bistro (small, inexpensive restaurant) that serves a small range of tasty starters/mains/desserts. We had the lunch menu which offered generous sized main dishes that were very tasty - for an astonishing £4.50. They also have a specials board and it was from this that my wife had mussels and chips. Friendly staff, great food, well positioned in the town and lovely clean washrooms! We've been before and will definitely go again. Finally, this place has owners that can make it work - well done to them!
