We love this place. The view is spectacular and on a warm evening there is plenty of space outside to wind down and watch the world go buy with a glass or 2 of Sangiovese. Or in the winter sit by the warm log fire....More

The bill was £25.50p .... The food, calamari, baguette and chips, came to £17. The total bill was £25.50p so we paid £8.50p for a pint of cider and half a bitter. Mouth-watering prices .... The food was half-decent, however.
