We wished you lived closer and could become a regular too! Thanks for the 5-star review. That sticky date pudding never leaves anyone frowning!

And there will be a third, great position, great staff & fantastic food. Chef entree particularly lovely as was the chocolate mousse dessert, the lightest mousse I have ever had.

We look forward to seeing you again soon! Yes, our Chef's Plate is very popular for entree because people can't decide on a single choice. :-) Our chocolate mousse is hard to go past too. Thanks for your great review.

Tucked away off the main thoroughfare but worth finding. Menu has a variety of main ingredients, although we were expecting a bigger choice of seafood. Very happy with our choices, and the wine list gave some good options. Staff friendly and attentive. Will go back.More

Dear Bruce, Unfortunately, your unfair, negative review just shows that you don't eat out in good restaurants enough to know that chefs cook meals from fresh when they receive your order. It is therefore normal to wait for your food after placing your order. We...More

Thanks for your inquiry. No we are not BYO. Out landlord requests a high rent for our views. As a result, we must sell wine to help pay the rent. Regards,
