Range of food here is limited but what they offer is tasty and tempting in a cosy place. I was really impressed one time when I asked for a special vegetarian dinner for someone’s birthday their communication and efforts were much appreciated

We were passing through, spotted this restaurant and decided to call in. We order steak cooked to our liking. It was absolutely delicious! I ordered for desert the chocolate fondant and this was amazingly rich. Service was very polite. We would definitely go back!

Ate here in February. Food was outstanding and the overall atmosphere was brilliant. They had a live musician playing which made the whole experience extra special. The peppermint tea is also to die for!
