Delicious lunch buffet, freshly prepared with seasonal food. Desserts are excellent too! Very friendly staff and nice atmosphere - especially if the weather allows you to sit outside! I eat at Taste Bud regularly and will continue to do so in the future.

The place where locals go; well one of the places at least. The Harvest Table offers a lovely selection of traditional and healthy options to choose from. It is ready so this means a quick in and out - when you sit there or when...More

It is a wonderful setting - outside under the Oak trees - and inside more small tables and a long communal table that feels like sitting in a farm kitchen :) Setting alone is unfortunately not enough to get customers to go back! Outside table...More
