visited 3 separate times for breakfast and each time the food and service was fantastic. my favourites were the hot salmon and the apple porridge and such a lovely environment with the open fire and smaller dinning area.

We chose to have breakfast here and it was lovely. Good coffee. Fabulous decore and free range bacon which I appreciated as it allowed me to have bacon and eggs! Would definitely recommend.

Cosy hole in the wall with fireplace, limited menu, reasonably priced food, expensive drinks. Seating is not very comfortable for longer visits and service is patchy. Struggles when busy.More

Absolutely beautiful evening. What a view to dine to! Had a starter of parmesan churros and smoked salmon, followed by the catch of the day and the pork belly, cooked to perfection! A dessert platter was the perfect finish to a wonderful meal.
