This is a brilliant local restaurant with brilliant portions and lovely friendly service. Generally the owner is working so you receive all the personal attention you could want without being overbearing. Wine is very reasonably priced and well sourced.

A very friendly and warm welcome followed by every course being absolutely fantastic. The blue cheese sauce that goes with the steak is the best I"ve ever tasted. The sticky toffee pudding rounded everything off. They get everything right here so it's well worth a...More
